Mason Jar Wedding invitations
You may not be able to send each and every one of your guests an actual mason jar, but you can send them an invite in the shape of a mason jar. This Country Canning Jar – Invitation uses shades of various colors to create a 3-D effect and even features real twine that is wrapped around the top of the stationery.
Line the aisle
Before you walk down the aisle to say “I do” to the love of your life, consider lining it with mason jars. They can be hung on chairs or pews or simply set on the ground (as long as they’re out of the way of major foot traffic). You can choose to fill them with flowers that adhere to your wedding theme or put sand and tea light candles in them for a beachy destination wedding.
Designate a table at your reception to fill with empty mason jars. Attach each guests’ name and table number to the front of the jar using a label and stick a striped straw in there that matches your color palette. This can be used as an alternative to place cards, and each of your guests will have a designated glass to use for the rest of the evening that they can take home with them.
Not sure how to dress up your reception tables? Use mason jars. And lots of them. Group them together and fill them with a variety of blooms. You can even paint the jars to coordinate with other decor at your wedding. Stick a burlap table runner underneath your centerpiece for a simple rustic touch.
Mason jars are perfect for storing ingredients for your guests to take home. Fill them with layers of hot cocoa mix and tiny marshmallows for them to enjoy later, or stack various ingredients necessary to make chocolate chip cookies (sans eggs and milk, of course). Tie the jar with some ribbon, twine or burlap and you have yourself a tasty and simple wedding favor that everyone is sure to love (and actually use).
