After the fact: DIY ball jar lanterns

The following pictures were my inspiration for our ceremony decor. But I wanted to use ball jars (see some of these) and have alternating flowers and candles (citronella b/c we were supposed to be outside) because I wanted 12 total (6 pairs).








This is what we ended up with since we weren't able to have the ceremony on the beach. What is funny is that I had all the rims done but none of the handles, so my cousins came over the night before the wedding with my aunt (totally drunk might I add) and helped to finish! Thanks guys! Anyhow, so the ladies at the Holiday Inn and my friends & family came up with other ideas to use what I sent. My little black planning book was left at home full of instructions of everything- all they had was my inspiration binder... but they did a great job and it worked out!
