Have a cleaning station for people to rinse them out.  I would also consider having backup glasses for people who don’t like re-using glasses.

Why does the mason jar need to be used for so many things?  Make it a favor/escort card and leave it at that.  Provide other glasses for wine, champagne, and water.

I’ve seen several of these threads pop up on WB. I think the majority said that it’s inconvenient to make a guest reuse the same glass all day long. I tend to side with this camp.

If I’m in my nice dress-up outfit, I don’t want to constantly have to rinse and dry out my glass for everything I drink. What if I want to nurse two beverages at once? For example, I will often get a glass of water when I order a cocktail and go between them.

I think the mason jar thing is cute but lacks practicality. I can’t imagine setting up a sink with dish soap, sponges and paper towels for people to wash their glasses all night long.

I feel like such a spoiled brat saying this, but I don’t want to clean up my own glassware as a guest at someone else’s wedding.  Especially if I have a nice dress and shoes on, I just feel like that’s asking for a wardrobe disaster.  The mason jars are way cute for escort cards though!  And maybe instead of using them as glasses, fill them with candy and they’ve got a favor/escort card combo!

I wouldn’t use the mason jars as drinking glasses. If you want to give them as a favor, I’d leave them as is (if the guests want to bring their mason jar over to the bar to fill it up and drink out of it, no one’s stopping them) or fill them with candy or something else as a previous poster mentioned. Mason jars are pretty cumbersome, and I’d probably end up spilling all over myself and/or dropping it if I tried to drink out of one all night.

@orangeroses29:  I think nix the idea of using them as glasses, keep them as place cards.

@orangeroses29:  No, that still seems kind of pointless and silly. Just keep them as place cards.

@orangeroses29:  I went to a fantastic rustic outdoor lakeside wedding last summer where we did this. we didn’t rinse our cups and yes everyone walked around with them (why wouldn’t you? Do you leave your wine glass at a table? Someone made a comment about that above lol)

also, depending on what you are having to drnk most people won’t go beer-wine-beer-wine so no need to rinse them in my opinion. However, if you have a nice wedding venue and they provide glassware etc then I definitely wouldn’t do this.
