    Oh no, I'm not having any of those things either! Dammit, maybe I should just have a do-over after the fact?

    True-- I wouldn't say no to a mimosa under almost any circumstances.

    I actually want to get the hanger. I found a vendor on etsy a while ago. I think it's cute and I will most definitely use it after the wedding - I wouldn't buy one for my bridesmaids because I think that's weird. I also plan on doing something similar to mason jars but I'm buying glass vases at the dollar store and wrapping lace around them for centerpieces with only a few flowers on the inside. Very pretty but simple and cheap . . . so maybe not similar to mason jars since those DIY seem to cost a lot. 

    And what is with STARBUCKS?!?! I don't live near one so maybe I don't understand but I just see over priced extremely sweet - holy diabetes drinks.

    ...And not doing the other ideas - though can we just call wild flowers flowers? Most people do some kind of flower arrangement for their bouquet. I see no need to poke fun at that.

    I think having one or two of those things for your wedding is totally fine. When you start getting to more than a handful of them, you start heading into the over-zealous-Pinterest-hipster-bride zone...

    Yeah, I agree. I realized that while normal people think of wildflowers as a lovely arrangement someone is out there claiming it as their idea and is sooooooo "original".

    hahahhaa this is someone we know! FI and I looked at the website together and laughed saying "katie" had that! and that! and that! and definitely that! I made fun of the wedding the whole time I was there calling it the Pinterest Explosion (of course only to FI not other guests)

    I was gonna ask WTF a house party is...but I'm guessing from PP that it's like B list bridal party??  And I would happily enjoy a mimosa bar as well.

    I have never heard of a house party for weddings. There are way too many parties just to get to the big one.

    I might die. Best tips? Coat your bridal party in chalkboard paint and throw mason jars at the couple as they exit!


    Admittedly, I wouldn't be sad to eat Nutella out of the jar at a wedding or anywhere else.

    I like the idea of releasing cicadas. Why do I like the idea of releasing cicadas?

    When I ask whether something deep inside me is irrevocably broken, please point me back to this post.

    @Stitches, don't worry, i chuckled at the idea of releasing cicadas too. But then, I'm also the bride who "accidentally" listed children as a meal option.

    I'm cracking up at the robes! Ugh. So terrible. 

    I've never heard of this house party thing either.

    Dying laughing at the DIY tips! I'm totally going to have my four year old nephew and all of his pre-k classmates make me hand turkeys for my decorations. Who knew I had an untapped resource right in my own family?

    I second that statement. Had a cup this morning! Not sure about wedding day though, it tends to upset my tummy. (TMI, I know!)

    Ah, I could spend so many hours over on Buzzfeed.  It's dangerous.  Those DIY tips cracked me up!  You can solve any decor problem with mason jars and chalkboard paint, right?

    Some of these would never have even crossed my mind. I am sad I didn't have a mimosa bar though. My marriage is a sham!

    I totally am guilty of the "wildflower" bouquets. That said, we are using some roses too. We just don't really love how all plain roses look.

    I also like the word hangers, as ridiculous as they are.

    I'd be mad if I had to share my jar, though. IT IS MINE, PRECIOUS.

    I see nothing wrong with eating Nutella out of a jar.

    (Says the girl who had a Nutella wedding cake at her wedding, and Nutella cupcakes, and buys the largest jar of Nutella possible every two weeks at the grocery store).
