funnily enough , just last night i watched Mamma Mia, and they had an outdoor wedding, and they were placing tea lights into jam jars and hanging them in the tress,  i thought then what a lovely idea that was.

you could also wrap them with ribbon and use them for placing your bouquets in.

oooh!

I made these (similar) for my sister’s bridal shower. You can get the wooden spoons pretty cheap off the internet (10 bucks for 150), the cute stickers from zazzle, and twine/ribbon your choice.

You can use them for drinking out of if you are having a rustic wedding. Lemonade? 

I’ve also seen a thread a while back that had cupcakes in jars for favors. That would be a huge hit I’m sure!

Depending on the feel of your wedding you could definitely use them for lemonade / idea tea, even wine or mixed drinks – especially because it’s in the summer. It also looks beautiful to put ivory colored candles in the jars and use them as centerpieces or decorations. ORRRR you could give them to me because I’m working to collect hundreds of jars for the candle idea mentioned above :). Good luck! Jars are very versatile and look pretty in several ways.

You can bake little pies in each of them!  You put all the ingredients into the jars, put the lid on, and freeze them until you’re craving pie!  Or, you bake them all the night before your wedding and people can reheat them when they get home…

I was also thinking of putting some candles in them and maybe lining your aisle with them?

@mrpatrick1: My friend did that for her wedding – they put her grandmother’s famous rhubarb/strawberry jam in the jam jars, covered the lids with some foam and a colourful piece of material on top, and tied an elastic around it to hold the material on.  It was cute, and delicious!!

I <3 Jars….

Sorry if they have already been mentioned but without the lids A few things are coming to my mind

CandleHolders

Hanging Candle Holders ( all you would need is a little wire) I have seen them done with String Lights too

 Vases of course ( use it as is or you could paint …wrap it with burlap or other fabric. You could decorate it with wide ribbon or even scrapbook paper ) or you could decoupage it

Utensil Holders (depending on the size)

Cups ( our favorite Cups in my house are the Small Apple Butter size mason jars)

I just posted a post where they took jars and made apocathery Jars out of them…(you would need the lids)

Jars also make great beauiful storage
