A-mason Grace (See Jane Plan)

Ooh boy, sorry everyone--you asked for it.  All of you so graciously replied that you wouldn't mind wedding planning details in my blog, so I apologize in advance if you were just being polite.  I am a big fan of the wedding blog Style Me Pretty and if you've ever taken a peek, you know that the use of mason jars in decor is quite prevalent.  Some may argue that the look 'is done (boo) but I love the rustic and vintage feel of mason jars and hope to incorporate them into my Mexican fiesta.

Some of my favorite uses of mason jars at weddings:

margaritas

vases
favors
lanterns

There is something so crafty about mason jars that produce an down-home, comfortable feeling.  It doesn't matter how much I see them on wedding blogs--they're so unabashedly cute!  Would you (or did you) allow them at your wedding?

Oh, how original, unique and adorable. I think using mason jars for weddings is ok if the theme and location "support" them. incorporating these jars at Garden or beach wedding party is definitely acceptable. thanks for sharing this, I LOVE it :))

totally! they gave out arnold palmer vodkas at that insanely beautiful wedding i went to in KC a few weeks ago. then someone cleaned all the jars out during the dinner and we could pick up clean jars to take home at the end of the night!

I think they are so romantic and there is something rustic or vintage about them. I love Style Me Pretty. I have a folder for (future) wedding inspiration and SMP takes up most of that folder!

Katie said...

I love the lanterns!

Valerie said...

I absolutely love this look! And Style me pretty is such a great site for wedding inspiration. The first picture looks like a margarita in a mason jar-what a great idea!! Keep the wedding details coming, I love hearing about this stuff.

I incorporated Mason Jars of all different sizes and colors into my wedding as centerpiece vases and drinking glasses!!! All of my guests loved them. It is a great way to add personality to otherwise often unnoticed details.

Yes!! I would totally do it. I think the margaritas out of mason jars are cool - (coming from someone who drinks kool-aid out of them even though I'm an adult). The lantern idea is very pretty, too.

Absolutely love the look of mason jars for a wedding. I actually buy small ones because I love to drink out of them. I have no idea what it is, but I love it ; )

Carrie said...

I just found my love for mason jars as well to drink out of but I love these ideas for them! Also, I didn't even THINK to contact you when I was in Chicago! So NEXT TIME I would LOVE to meet you! It was a girl's weekend so maybe Jake and I can get out there this winter or early spring before the big day..which by the way, I AM COMING TO! I am sooooo so excited! xo

Samantha said...

I have a minor obsession with mason jars! I fully support taking advantage of their many uses at your wedding!! The last photo of the lanterns is my favorite : )

Molly said...

They weren't part of our decor, but you should TOTALLY use them. Who cares if they're "over"? I think they're rustic and cool! I say go for it.
