I feel like these will push your opinion towards one way or another…

I think it can go either way.  It depends on the flowers you use and whether or not you wrap or embellish them with something.

I think mason jars have the versatility to blend with whatever is going on around them. Even the style of your flowers will help to make them look appropriate and complementary to your theme.   Regardless of a theme, whenever I see flowers in masons, I always think “How cute!”

jordynrose makes a good point about embellishments helping to make them more theme-appropriate.

I think the English garden theme will work with mason jars well.  And really it depends on what other decor you have.  If you wrap it with a plaid or burlap and have sunflowers, definitely country.  But roses and hydrangeas will spruce them up.  The pictures above do an awesome job of illustrating this.  The first picture jordynrose posted with the ribbon looks really pretty!

We’re sort of putting a twist on mason jars for our wedding. Our colors are all different shades of purple with a splash of green, so what we’ve decided to do is put those colored glass stones in the jars to give it more of a modern look, rather than a country/rustic look. I love that look, too… but we wanted something that would go well with our modern garden wedding and reception!! We’re still going to use mason jars and put candles in them, but they’ll just have the colored stones around the bottom so it ties everything in together.

Hope this helps :]

I think it is a lovely look, but, just doesn’t match what you are asking for. Really. As beautiful as all of these examples are, they are definitely along the lines of rustic and carefree elegance, not classic.
