    @CountryBee13:I would be completely ok with it, as long as there’s an option to wipe the glass with a cloth so that it don’t drip on my dress! You could perhaps supply straws as well, so that the glasses will look nicer through the evening – i.e. no lipstick marks!

    I wouldn’t mind using the same glass but I would want a seperate glass for water. I wouldn’t want to be in a line rinsing my glass in a pretty dress and heels.

    I would find this very strange… to be honest.

    You could always get small drinking water glasses from the dollartree, I think they come in packs of 6 for 1 dollar. I’m using these for my wedding, and putting pitchers of ice water on every table. Each place setting will have 1 water glass, 1 toasting glass, and then there will be other cups available for mixed drinks or beer/soda.

    I personally wouldn’t enjoy rinsing my glass out each time I wanted a new drink. And I believe most people probably wouldn’t even utilize the station, they’d just switch drinks without rinsing.

    I don’t think I would want to rinse my own glass at a wedding, maybe you could have separate (cheaper) glasses at the tables for water with pitchers of water and then have the mason jars for their drink of choice??

    I honestly wouldnt mind at all, in fact I would be surprised that there WAS a rinsing station, since I’m a girl that’s always intrigued by the heady bouquet of a glass of shiraz, in a jar that JUST had some coke in it….

    I wouldn’t mind at all.  I wouldn’t even rinse mine out half the time!

    I think it’s a cute idea in theory, but not so much in practice.  While it’s not terrible, I’d probably get annoyed at having to rinse my glass any time I wanted a new drink.  Also, I usually like to have a glass of water in addition to another beverage.  So if you can also provide seperate water glasses, then the mason jar glasses are probably okay.  What do your friends and family think?

    I wouldnt mind but I have a terrible habit of walking around at weddings and talking to people, and leaving my glasses all over the place. What if your guests misplace their glass, will there be extras?

    i wouldn’t mind at all, and I think it’s a lot more environmentally conscious for people to just rinse their glasses than for them to use disposable ones. Just make sure you don’t put any washable decorations that could be destroyed by the water (or any paint that will dissolve and leak on someone’s clothes)
