I need your opinions on mason jars...

Our ceremony/reception will be held in a nice indoor venue. We have decided our colors will be brown/white/turqouise. I want to do the blue mason jars as center pieces (similar to the 1st picture). However I am in love with the concept of the second picture as favors.

Do you think its only appropriate for outdoor wedding?

Is it tacky?

Overdone?

    If it fits other decor in the venue then I don't see why you can't use them. The pictures above are really pretty, so if you did something similar I'm sure everyone would love it! Mason jars are popular, personally I am using some too and getting married in Alabama, people probably expect mason jars haha

    This is somewhat what I am doing.. I am using mason and other glass jars along with yarn wrapped twisted tea bottles for my centerpieces (some will have candles others will have flowers) and doing handled mason jars (like the ones in the pic below) as drinking glasses for guest (will also be used as escort cards)

    My venue is indoor or outdoor.. decor will not change no matter which I decide to do.

    It seems like every other wedding is rustic when you're on a wedding planning board, but my guess is the majority of your guests will never have attended a rustic wedding. If you like it, go for it.

    The decor of the venue will be white.. so it will match perfect. I'm in southern Indiana. Mason jars are a way of life here too lol. FH and I love the idea!

    I think they are great. My cousin had them at her Rustic wedding. She did the most beautiful thing I've ever seen at a wedding. There was a huge, wide, low hanging tree, and she hung 200 candles from the tree in mason jars. It was so magical. She also had them as favors/table numbers.

    The only pictures I see are of outdoor weddings using mason jars. Thats why I'm concerned. I don't want it to come off as tacky...

    I think the blue ones are really pretty and would work in most settings. I have only seen the mason-jar-as-glass thing at more country/outdoor type weddings, but that doesn't mean you can't do it. Honestly unless you are making people drink out of red solo cups I don't think it would be tacky.

    My wedding reception is in doors and we are using Mason Jars as the centerpieces, here is a picture of my inspiration and a picture of the mason jars I made and will be using. I don't think is tacky at all.

    We aren't using mason jars to drink out of at the wedding, but I think it is a cute idea.

    I think it will be fine and now that they're selling the blue mason jars again it's even easier.

    I don't know what I'd do with it. I would probably keep the candle- unless it was one of those cheap tea lights, and toss the jar.

    I use the old blue mason jars as kitchen canisters.

    I'm doing the mason jar drinking glasses as well as miss marched vintage centerpieces. My venue is inside and I think it will work great. As long as all of the decor goes together it will be fine.

    My Daughter's wedding was indoors, Part of the table decorations were mason jars. The chandelier was made of antlers, As well as all the sidelights.

    I think if you're tasteful about it you can certainly pull it off.

    @ Soon to be Lisa M thank you. Yes I am going DIY. I have the mason jars done already. I am not using the bird house. My dad and FH are cutting the round wooden slabs. I want to have the mason jar in the center with flowers and 3 to 4 votive candles around the mason jar.

    @ Amy A.. Very Beautiful! Love the colors Smiley smile

    @ Breanna the concept sounds very beautiful. I can't wait to see pics!

    I sure hope we can pull it off tastefully! We love the concept and yes they are cheap especially if you buy them in bulk.

    I am also using mason jars as decor but not necessarily as centerpeices although I may add them to the tables. I am making these.
