I can certainly understand wanting to keep things as low stress as possible in the days before the wedding!  What if you talk to your Future Mother-In-Law about who will be responsible for these?  If she is willing to take full responsibility of the transport and cleaning, then just cross it off your list of things to worry about and be done.  I think mason jars are dishwasher safe, so cleaning them wouldn’t be too painful.  As far as loading and unloading, that would take a matter of seconds, so it’s no big deal.  Just discuss it with her and make sure she’s got it covered, but I think it will be fine!

Can she wash them at her house, and transport them already cleaned? then just rinse them pack them up and wash them again when she’s home?  If she really needs to wash them once she gets to your town, if she’s washing them by hand, then she certainly could do it at the hotel if you really prefer.  If she’s doing them in the dishwasher, it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes of loading and unloading and then however long your dishwasher runs.

I agree with the ladies above. If she washes them first, and takes the responsibility then that’s fine. They’d still fit in with a super casual BBQ vibe, and it’s nice that she wants to make that day even more special. In terms of Future Mother-In-Law drama that’s on these boards…I don’t think this has to be a battle you have to worry about. 🙂

I’d let her do the mason jars. She sounds excited about it and she probably wants to get involved in the wedding/RD planning somehow, and this might be the idea she has come up with to do that.

Let your Future Mother-In-Law and your parents deal with the logistics. And your parents should have to deal with Future Mother-In-Law washing mason jars in their kitchen if she needs/wants to since they insisted on having it at their house.
