I am having mason jars incorporated in my wedding for various ideas .. I'd like to hear / see pictures of what people have done, or what they are going to do for their weddings as well. Thanks and happy planning Smiley smile

    Ha, I had this idea to!! I love the rustic look and down home feel they have. Look on Etsy for the mason jar candle holders... They're to die for!! I also planned on using mason jars in my centre pieces... Fill 'em with water, dunk in some baby's breath and top it with some white liles, or even floating candles depending on your tastes. Happy hunting, I'll be sure to be checking up on this thread to!

    I am having mason jars too! Some will hang from hooks down the aisle at the ceremony. They will have candles in them. I will also have them on my tables with candles in them. My flower girls will carry hanging mason jars full of rose petals to drop instead of baskets. Also, I have memorial candles made out of mason jars that I got on etsy.com

    You could use them as lanterns, drinking glasses, vases/centerpieces, containers for candy buffet, use the really tiny ones and make jam and give them as favors.

    @ Jennifer O - isn't that a cute idea? It looks so fresh with the bright daffodils and limes! Then the burlap and ribbon are a perfect finishing touch!

    Geez, most of the wedding decorations revolve around mason jars....mason jars with candles on the ledges of the barn, mason jars and glass milk jugs with flowers for the centerpieces, mini mason jars with hot choc. and mini marshmallows for favors and mason jars with handles for the beer!

    We are using mason jars for our centerpieces. I changed the flowers and will be changing the ribbon because orange and brown are not our colors. I bought them from a bride on The Knot.

    I am using mason jars too! I love the rustic, vintage feel it gives the wedding. We are also using them for the favors. I am filling the jars with the dry ingredients to all our favorite deserts and attached the guests' name and table number. I refuse to have favors that people throw away .. lol But I love the idea of lining the walk way of the reception site with jars with flowers or candles in them. There are so many uses for them.
