Hi there, rustic-romance theme here, which is pretty close to your theme.

I personally don’t want mason jars or the sort because I feel it’s SUPER overdone, but we have gotten long stem tealight candles, that we plan to decorate with lace [everything is lace in our wedding], and probably small votive holders as well.

Baby food jars could be cute, too but I’d much rather have actual candleholders.

go with votives.  No matter what you do to it, a baby food jar ALWAYS still looks like a decorated baby food jar.

Sounds like you’ve already got the jars, so might as wel make use of them. At least that’s how I approach wedding stuff because I am super frugal 🙂

I think maybe if you wrapped a sleeve around the baby food jars with a nice stiff lace (maybe even a cut paper doily) instead so that the trim went beyond the lip of the jar, it could look very nice and people will not even pay attention to the fact that it’s baby food jars.

Kind of like this:
