I am going to go with no to this.  It just doesn’t work in practicality.

Where are they getting the cola / beer / liqour / specialty drink from? A bar, where bartenders are pouring the drinks from? I can’t imagine it would take more than 5 seconds to dump any remaining liquid, then swirl some water in it to clean it out, before pouring the new drink.

I think it’s achievable! That picture inspired me, too. I wish Fiance and I could do the same, but I don’t think it really “fits” our venue :/

We are using them.  But we are having a vintage/country theme.  We are also getting the striped paper straws in the wedding colors.

We made these mason jar wine glasses for our wedding party and some of our reserved guests. It worked better than trying to let all 300 people at our reception have their own glass…

@DianWorl: I love mason jars but I don’t want to drink out of a jar. I really don’t want to drink out of a jar in my fancy dress at a wedding. I vote no. Sorry.

Well, it really depends on how your caterer/bartender is doing beverages.

Mine supplies 1 wine glass and 1 drinking glass. We are having a beer/wine/sangria reception. Guests are encouraged to reuse their wine glass for wine and sangria. Anyone who wants beer will either be given beer in the bottle or a clear hard plastic pint glass and encouraged to use those as well.

I don’t really see this as a big issue. They can always be just the water glasses and water glasses alone. I love the way it looks and when I was visiting my venue, the girl setting up for her wedding was doing the same thing. It looks great! go for it!

We used mason jars as the placecard for the table and as their favor! They also drank out of them! However, we had lots of other cups if they wanted to use something besides the mason jar!

Dont worry about small stuff! Quit overthinking every detail!  I learned the hard way!  Use the mason jars our guest loved them!

I think its really cute. As a person drinking from them though I dont like it. I find it awkward because the thread (the pieces that is used to screw the top) is uncomfortable on my lip and it has a tendency to dribble and spill on what I am drinking.

I think you definitley need to have extra drinkware around. This way they can use the glass if they like for whatever drink (and rise out in between types) or just use the other types.
