I absolutely adore drink stations at weddings- they are a perfect way to keep guests cool and refreshed for those warm summer ceremonies and receptions.
You can absolutely create a stylish drink station for not a lot of money- or effort! Just select a cute drink dispensers that match your wedding style- one for each beverage you plan to serve (lemonade, iced tea, water) or combine dispensers with fun beverage tubs to present bottled water or other drinks. Add in some cute name tags and glasses (your caterer may provide these, or think about using small mason jars- cute and cheap) and you have a pretty and practical drink station!
And here are some deals to get you started!
- World Market
has this cool retro drink tank on sale for $19.99, or this summery red dispenser for $19.99. I also love this yellow beverage tub down to $13.99 with free shipping! (Look in the sale section to see all the items)- Zulily and Totsy
often have sales on drink dispensers- I've seen plain glass dispensers for as low as $13 plus shipping in the sales!
- Bed Bath and Beyond has affordable drink dispensers
, like double beverage stand for $29.99. Use a 20% off coupon from being on their mailing list to make the set just $23.99! - You may also be able to snag a deal on beverage dispensers at kitchen outlet stores!
has a new mason jar coupon available! Go here
to print out a coupon for $3 off 2 cases of Ball or Kerr mason jars! Use this at Target, Kmart, or Walmart to get some cheap mason jars to use as wedding details! One scenario: it looks like Kmart has cases of Kerr mason jars on sale for $8.99. If your local store has the sale, buy two cases and use the coupon and you end up getting each jar for just 62¢!
That's a HOT price if you ask me!! Mason jars have so many beautiful uses for weddings, and you can do many of these on a budget. Here are some of my favorites!
Had to share this because these are so fun! If you are a college sports fan, check out the Fanshoes Rainboot sale at Totsy today. Rainboots with different team logos on them are on sale for $16.75 plus shipping.
I think these would be such a fun way to incorporate your favorite team into a few wedding photos! Change into the boots and show them off for the camera!
Or if you are not a sports fan, you could do this with just fun patterened or bright rainboots. Get these on sale to do it on a budget- I often see good rainboot deals at Totsy
and at my local outlets.

There is something about this time of the year-- the chocolate browns and deep reds and oranges, the apple cider and harvest themed tables-- I just love it! And what's a fall party without pumpkin whoopie pies?? Here is some inspiration for a beautiful fall wedding with warm colors, comfort food, and lots of style.

There is something so sophisticated and elegant about pairing these colors together for a classy, clean look. And I love adding these blush touches- it gives a splash of color and creates an overall soft, romantic effect. So pretty!

What could be more fun than a room filled with chocolate, sugar, and a lot of love?? I think a candy shop inspired bridal shower would be a big hit among guests and the bride. I love how the pink and browns say cheerful, girly fun. Throw in some printables, tissue poms, and striped straws, and you have a stylishly sweet grown up party!

This week's inspiration is all about location. There is just something so romantic about a wedding at a winery. I love how the deep rich purples here play with the color of the wine and the how the green and white accents pop against them. Throw in some candlelight and you have a sophisticated, elegant vineyard wedding brimming with romance. Swoon!
