Mason Jars are a necessity when adding a simple southern touch to your wedding. Ditch the traditional vases for mason jars. While the plain mason jars will do the trick, you can always add some flair by taking burlap or hemp cord and tying a bow or using it to wrap the mason jar. Adorn your jars with baby’s breath, sunflowers or hydrangeas for the perfect southern flair.

Is there a more southern way to display photos than the photo above? Using an old wooden door, nails, string and clothespins, string up photos from you and your spouse’s relationship. This is a wonderful way to engage guests in your life together and a great decoration for any reception!

A great twist for your Athens, Georgia wedding is hay bales for seating. Rows of hay bales topped with quilts or white sheets are the perfect way to bring well-known southern tradition to life. This seating is not only a comfy alternative to fold out chairs but will really give your wedding a southern hometown feel.

Serve classic, ice cold treats in a rustic wheelbarrow. This is the ideal staple to your simple and southern reception. Fill the wheelbarrow up with ice and top it with watermelon or use it as a cooler for wine or sodas!
