We are having an afternoon BBQ reception a few weeks after a sorta-elopement ceremony (just us, minister and witnesses) to celebrate with family and friends (a lot of family has not even seen our house we bought over a year ago because they live away). This reception is very much DIY and causal. We are getting a keg from a local microbrewery and also serving wine (amongst non alcoholic drinks). I don’t have enough wine glasses without buying more, and we had just decided to use 500 ml mason jars for the keg, what do you think about using the 250 ml mason jars for wine glasses? Small and medium in the pic.

I would rent some wine glasses.

Rent some wine glasses or see if you can buy them cheaply through Costco or similar.
I really hate drinking from Mason jars. Plus, I seem to always wind up spilling/dribbling and getting the drink all over my outfit. I’d rather use a plastic disposable wine glass than a mason jar, believe it or not.

I drink wine out of mason jars sometimes. They’re just not exactly cheap so keep that in mind. I personally wouldn’t mind plastic glasses for an outdoor wedding.

It’s most definitely ‘or…’

Do you already have the mason jars for the wine? If not, I think there is a good chance that you will be able to find wine glasses that are cheaper than the mason jars.
I wouldn’t care either way as a guest, but if it’s a cost thing you might be better off going with the wine glasses.

You can buy wine glasses at the dollar tree! We have a few and we use them more than our expensive ones

I’d go with wine glasses. You can pour a lot in the mason jars as opposed to wine glasses so people may waste a lot of wine or white warm will get faster.
its a little hard to drink out of a mason jar and I’d worry about people spilling. It may make a mess on the dance floor if people are drinking wine out of a mason jar and dancing. More liquid to spill!

I dribble when I drink out of those. Cute idea and I saw a bar that had them fire their beer and I didn’t dribble thenm..not sure what the difference was.

Do it girl, you said it’s a BBQ and more casual ceremony. I like it.

Mason jars are no cheaper/probably more expensive than buying or renting glasses. Do you live near an IKEA?? They sell wine glasses for $1 and that is here in Australia. I’m sure they’d cost even less than that in the US with the currency conversion rates.
I honestly hate mason jars… I hate the trend. Pickles, preserves and jam go in jars not drinks!

I detest mason jars for drinking. I always spill. Mason jars are excellent for canning and can be cute in decor, but they aren’t cups. Rent wine glasses.

Even small tumblers are better than mason jars. Just buy additional wine glasses, you can get them pretty cheaply.
I do find it weird that you would have enough jars, but couldn’t get enough glasses.

We bought flutes and glasses from costco- cheaper than renting and we’ve used them again since for parties.
