Cup of Wedding Charm.

This amazing weather has me looking forward to a new season. My favorite way to freshen things up this spring is a mint julep cup. Once I fixated on this cute vessel I found countless ways to utilize it. For ways to use them in your home, look here and here.

For all of my fellow brides-to-be out there, I could not skip over the many uses a mint julep cup would have at a spring wedding.

1) As I mentioned last week, every spring bouquet looks pretty in a mint julep cup. The small centerpiece would work on the tables at various style receptions. Consider filling a julep cup with wild flowers for your rustic or outdoor garden party wedding...

Or pair with a chandelier and lots of candles for a romantic centerpiece at a more glamourous wedding...

Look how pretty and delicate the same centerpiece can look at a vintage-themed wedding! (Love the roses.)

2) The mint julep is a classic southern cocktail and has a beautiful presentation which makes for more fabulous photos of your wedding. Consider making the mint julep one of your specialty drinks...

Doesn't it look refreshing?

3) If you already have the perfect glass vases for your reception tables picked out, you can use mini julep cups as votive candle holders on your reception dining tables.  

4) Give out a julep cup candle as wedding favors to your guests. (Not getting married? This also makes a great hostess gift.) Another bonus: You can personalize this one with a monogram for only $7. 

5) Such a perfect aisle detail for an outdoor spring ceremony. 

6) Remember, a simple bouquet in a mint julep cup is a sweet statement. Put one on your gift, photo, or guestbook table for a pretty and budget-friendly detail. You won't need anything else to dress up the table. 

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.
