When Love Gives You Lemons

A detail that My Guy and I agreed upon quite handily was that as soon as the ceremony was over, we wanted the reception starting immediately. The Mr. and I will retreat to my parents' house to sign our Wedding Certificate while our guests will mingle and meander from the ceremony area over the the reception area.

In the midst of this mingling and meandering, guests will be treated to a glass of lemonade to sip on and toast as the Wedding Party and My Guy and I enter the reception. Mama and I have been collecting Mason Jars to fill with lemonade and have been looking for a drink dispenser (as Mama's takes approximately 37 minutes to fill a small glass).

Here is an inspiration pic for the lemonade stand:
How Backyard Chic is this lemonade stand?
A wooden Lemonade Stand sign, a few chic straws and I think that we will be good to go!

I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of having 200 glasses of refreshing lemonade in a short amount of time. I have a few sorority sisters that volunteered to help. I might put these sisters to work pouring drinks!

Lemonade love and all of mine!


  1. Those are really cute pictures Boom...I think your lemonade stand will be really cute.

  2. I love this idea, and the pics are GORGEOUS. You could have a pretty dispenser for looks and then use glass or crystal pitchers to actually fill the jars. I'm sure you will come up with the perfect backyard chic solution.
    Peanut butter kisses and (lemonade love) to you,

  3. Sam's has acrylic drink dispensers for about $20. and my friend Jolene has one from their wedding. If you like the idea let me know...I'll be glad to pick up for you
