My Fiance wants to do this so bad.  It was cheaper to rent glasses but we found some really cheap deals on craigslist and ebay.  I don’t know why mason jars would be any different than regular glass as far as people misplacing them or mixing them up.  I’d say if you wouldn’t do name tage for water goblets than dont do it for mason jars.

Perhaps you could keep aside some extra ones incase some guests loose theirs?

If you do them, it would be super cute to have a ribbon around the jar and then just buy little oval Avery labels and print guests names on them so it’s like: —0— around the jar.

I let my cater figure it out but they suggested just 1 for each guests.  This would not be for alcohol too though, just water and we are not having other drinks like ice tea or soda  You’d need more if you were going to use it for other drinks like soda or liquor.

We are doing one mason Jar mug (basically a jar with a handle, from the Christmas Tree Shoppe for $1 each, much cheaper than renting multiple glasses for each guest) for each guest.  their escort cards will be wine charms that they will put on their handle, to keep track of their glass. we are only serving margaritas, beer and sangria so mixing cocktails wont really be an issue. The guest can then take their glasses home with them, doubling as a favor. We will have back up biodegradable plastic cups, but Reduce Reuse and Recycle will be stressed at our wedding.  Close Family and Friends have been instructed to pass the word around about reusing the glasses, with the “threat” of “if you loose your glass…no more margaritas for you!! Wink

This is a great idea. Look on green http://www.weddingshoes.com  One bride put the mason jars ona table and but a tag on each jar. She then put up a chalk board reading something like ” Your glass for the night for whatever tastes right. Don’t loose your cup and be sure to write your name on your tag.

A friend I know is giving her guest a mason jar as their wedding favor – and they will be using it for their drinks that night. If you tie a tag with their name, maybe that will help them keep traack of theirs.

Our worked great at our July wedding…every one got a wine charm whith their name on it to tie to the handle of their mug that also served as an escort card, and there was a sign that said “find your galss and hold on tight , ‘cuz it’s the only one you get tonight!”  guests loved it, and they got to go home with their mugs.  Only thing…make sure you have a very obvious place to dump ice and fruit right next to the bar otherwise it can get very messy quickly!

WE DID THIS!! and it doubled as their gift to take home. I included a picture of what we did.  i put a card in each glass to let them know that this was their glass for the night and their favor too.  We had the tables set and a case behind the bar. We used seperate glasses (tumblers) for wine. Everyone drank from them all night.  And….a girlfriend copied the idea for her christmas party…and one copied for her new years party!
