I can totally relate, I’ve seen really nice pictures….but they just wouldn’t fit. I get what you all mean with the guests being “confused” too, I’ve never even heard of a rustic wedding where I’m from. Besides, I wouldn’t use them even if they could – they just don’t appeal to me. But to each their own. 🙂

Eh, not a fan either. I don’t like drinking out of jars when I’m all dressed up. (or anytime, to be honest). I think they can be really nice when the theme is pulled off well, but definitely not for me.

I hate drinking out of mason jars, not because of how they look, but just because of how they feel against my lips.  If I have a straw I don’t really care. 

I personally think that mason jars as containers/decorations can add just the right feel in the proper environment (think rustic/country or super industrial/steampunk).  That being said, I’m still not using them in my wedding.

I actually like the way mason jars look, and I love rustic/countryside venues…bur I absolutely HATE drinking out of them! Its a jar, not a glass!

i get where you’re all coming from.  i don’t think they go with everything they’re put with but to each his own. 

I am actually using some in my centerpieces and to hold the bouquets.  I’ve always planned on using them because they are a part of who i am.  i am from a town that used to manufacture a brand of mason jar, ball jars.  Ball State University, anyone?  My dad found a huge box of the really old blue type of Ball jar at a yard sale and got them for me years and years ago.  I’ve been saving them ever since.

We’re having an outdoor garden wedding ceremony and reception so i think they’ll look good.  i’m not a fan of themed weddings in any way so i’ve trying to not let it come to that, lol.  I’ve always loved peonies, lilacs and lily of the valley because they grew at my Grans house my whole life so i just want to incorporate those as well.

my biggest dislike/pet peeve of wedding decor is burlap.

Everytime I see them I wonder if these ladies actually can with Mason jars? We can in our household so the idea of using them to hold flowers is…. odd. Not cute or unique, just… why????

I love mason jars!  Its definitely “me”.  I have a love antiques and old things – sometimes I think that I was born in the wrong era.  I’m just sad that I feel like I am hopping on the mason jar “band wagon” a little late… definitely seen it one too many times haha… doing it anyway though!!! 

I am definitely more of a country girl.  Modern design is definitely not my taste.  To each their own!

I absolutely love mason jars, but my aunts and uncles would bluntly say something about being too poor to afford a real vase or glass.  Gotta love coming from a culture where family have absolute ZERO filter and everything is about perceived wealth. Sigh.

@Nico79:  Ouch that’s rough. My cousin had what they called a “full blown redneck wedding” including lots of overalls, camo, and snuff/dip so I highly doubt they’ll be judging me for mason jars haha

I’m using a variety of clear bottles/jars for our centerpieces. Each table will have a wine bottle, a mason jar, and a little vintage bottle, all with flowers in them. I think it will be just the right mix of simplicity and elegance, which is exactly what I wanted my wedding to feel like.

@MLDoddie:  Me too, but we aren’t doing them, mostly because a) my venue provides glassware, and b) I’d have to buy them and my grandma is lending me some of her milk glass collection instead.

@MrsFeatherbottom:  Ahh you’re so lucky! I’m the first “kid” in my family to get married so I feel like there’s this high expectation for it to be a certain way.  Otherwise I’d have my mason jars with tea lights in them as decorations.
