I know everyone and their mom has heard about these striped paper straws but I just couldn’t help myself.
I’m so happy that this is a wedding/party trend that has swept the nation because it meant that it was easy to find them sold in bulk. At first, the plan was to use this in adorable mason jars, garnished with mint or citrus slices, but seeing as no part of our wedding is outdoors, it didn’t seem to work quite as well with our style. That didn’t stop me from gathering inspiration photos like this, however:
Check out that adorbs nail polish!
After we set aside the mason jar idea, I started thinking about other fun drinks that would be worthy of our stripey straws. That was when I came across this photo:
I love the addition of color that old fashioned sodas come in and wanted to offer something a little special in the drinks area since we’re having a dry wedding (cue the gasps), due to venue restrictions. The only problem now is sourcing the sodas. It would be amazing to find a local place since shipping is going to cost so much for the drinks but despite my Googling super powers, I’m having a lot of trouble finding one.
Does anyone out there know where can I get fun, colorful bottled sodas in Nashville?
