    Could you make the mason jars the favors and/or escort cards? I went to a wedding that used chalkboard paint on the mason jars and everyone wrote their name on the jar and that was their cup for the rest of the night. It was then our favor and we got to take them home! Or maybe you could write their name on the jar with their table number or something? That way they serve more than one purpose and can maybe save space/money on other things!

    I would get clear plastic cups instead of both of those options.  Paper seems like it might appear too cheap and there really is no need to provide heavy glass mason jars for the ceremony since people won’t likely want to keep those drinks with them.

    @Bunny82:  +1. Go with the equally disposable glass-like plactic cups.  I’ve seen these at weddings and they look great.  Your fiance is right, I would not spend the money on the mason jars in this situation but paper cups won’t photograph well…think BBQ

    Don’t get paper cups. Get the clear plastic ones instead.

    Mason jars to drink out of? I don’t like drinking out of them, they are not comfortably-shaped for holding and drinking out of anyway.

    Oops, I voted mason jars but didn’t realize it was just for the ceremony. I’d definitely go with paper cups (or no beverages if it’s not hot).

    I would get those nice plastic cups that look like glass. I’m not sure what brand they are, but I used them during a party once and they looked great! They’re definitely way cheaper than mason jars.

    I’m also going to vote for plastic instead of paper.

    Those hard acrylic glass-like cups crack a lot–I’d go with cornware.  They are biodegradable, inexpensive, look nice and are durable.

    Have you looked on blogs like ruffled or recycled bride or checked other wedding classifieds? I’ve seen a lot of people reselling their mason jars from their weddings for cheap. I agree that they look cute, but probably aren’t worth the expense just for a few photos. Another easy rustic-looking idea is to go to thrift stores/charity shops and buy mismatched glasses. Probably cheaper than mason jars, too! 

    Otherwise, I’d vote for nice plastic cups.

    Mason Jars are great! we used them so much fun, I would not waste money on paper cups they really arent that expensive! you can get them by the case!  Check a craft place they ususaly have them, like AC Moore and they always have coupons on their website!

    I hate mason jars and they’re hard to drink out of.  I echo the PPs who suggested clear plastic cups!
