wedding? I’m wondering if maybe I can just nix them all together? For the aisles, I’m doing hanging lanterns alternating with burlap bows adorned with flowers, with burlap and another fabric draped on either side. For the reception… I’m clueless, I don’t want it to be country, but I also like height so the 1 jar in the center isn’t going to get it for me. Any ideas? I am thinking of doing 2 different centerpieces with one being higher on half of the tables and the lower ones on the remaining. I need them to tie together though.
p.s. outside of our venue will be the fir pit and bar area, i was thinking of just doing some mason jars with rafia and a candle nothing special, as they are pub height, so feel like I need more inside.

Put some moss in the jar with a candle (in a little votive or else a tea-light so it doesn’t melt on the moss) on top of the moss!

To me one of the differences between rustic/vintage and country is in the details.
I agree with not using just one jar. Having the main floral arrangement surrounded by votives, other smaller jars or vases, china pieces e.g sugar bowls, creamers etc gives the centerpiece more presence.
You can also do that by elevating the main jar on a stack of books or a slab of wood.
This is a twist on the usual mason jars. These have been painted on the inside.

You could add some doillies to the tables like this:
Or under the plates use paper ones:
Or maybe make some colorful napkins like Mrs. Cowboy Boots did:

I like the way these look, not sure where to find the inserts though…
I also thing these are very pretty. You could incorporate your colors, plus they match the burlap you are using elsewhere:

You can always wrap them in a layer of vintage lace! 😉 It’s romantic, especially with a flickering candle inside!

I was also going to suggest the pictures in the mason jars. I found ones I like here:
