16 Masterful Mason Jar Wedding Ideas

Just when you thought we’ve come to saturation point with the trend, Mason Jar wedding ideas are still evolving and are simply too cute to ignore. Here’s a few of our faves that will be perfect for your Big Day…

Mason Cookie Jar Favours

For those who love a DIY challenge, this cute cookie project is the one for you. These make-at-home cookie jars will look so sweet at each of your guest’s place setting and instantly give each table a burst of rustic country colour. As with most DIY projects for the Big Day, this one doesn’t really save money (and can take a bit of time remember!) but they will definitely be worth it. Other options are self-assemble hot chocolate jars for cosy winter weddings or if that’s too time consuming, just pop in some assorted jellies! Photo via

Simple Country Style Mason Jar Centrepiece

The simple flower filled centrepiece is possibly the most obvious way to use the Mason Jar at your wedding, other than for drinking out of of course! The burlap-wrapped, twine-tied mason jar centrepiece is the go-to décor for laid back, rustic country themed weddings everywhere and is still a fab alternative to traditional vases if you’re trying to create a casual atmosphere. Add two or three in different sizes for a bit of depth and variety, or fill the bottom with lemons to give it a boost of colour. This one is simple to do and the options for floral fillers are endless.

Mason Jar Honeymoon Fund

Okay, this idea may have you saying whaaaa?! And we agree – we thought the same. Whatever you do, don’t stick a jar on a table at your wedding with the words Honeymoon Fund written across it – some guests might not get that you’re having a laugh (are you?!) The idea of this hipster take on the piggy bank is to make it a year before the Big Day, throw in a couple of quid when you have it and watch the money save itself! (If only, right?!) See? Not rude at all. It might also make a cute little pic on the morning of the Big Day. Photo via

mason-jar-cluster-wedding-centerpiece

Mason Jar Cluster Table Runner

This is a fab idea for those opting for long banquet style tables at their Big Day, imagine a crisp white cloth, burlap style table runner topped with pretty lace or doilies and just filled with a variety of tea light Mason Jars. This is a great take on the romance of a casual, rustic theme and would look perfect in rooms lacking a lot of natural light. Each jar can be decorated differently, with burlap, lace, and ribbon in the same colour as your overall theme. Photo via

Personal Mason Jar Desserts

If you’re not drooling right now, please check if your heart is still beating. How amazing do these strawberry shortcake mason jar desserts look?! We’ve no doubt guests won’t mind the lack of a wedding cake as soon as these are handed out for dessert, and your photographer will probably want some time alone with one too! These would work particularly well at an outdoor wedding as an evening type canapé for guests to munch on as they mingle! Photo via

mason-jar-emergency-kit-wedding-diy

The Mason Jar Bride Emergency Kit

How do you make a card of hair pins, some Vaseline, a sewing kit and some corn plaster look cute? Pop ’em in a Mason Jar! Okay, maybe you’d want to have a lot of time on your hands to be doing this yourself but if there’s any bridesmaids having a quick scan – the Mason Jar Emergency Kit makes a cheap and cute wedding gift! Brides, you can thank us later. Photo via

Mason Jar Floating Candles

These pretty Mason Jar floating candles can be placed anywhere from pew ends to the ceremony table or just dotted around the room in the evening. This version is a simple DIY with glass pebbles at the bottom and a raffia ribbon at the top. Easy peasy. Photo via Pinterest.

Mason Themed Stationery

You don’t just have to use Mason Jars on your table to include the quintessential rustic wedding item in your day – you could always pop it on to your wedding stationery instead. We think this pretty pink letterpress card does a great job of creating the tone for a casual and romantic countryside style wedding. Photo via

mason-jar-refreshing-drinks-post-ceremony

Post Ceremony Mason Jar Refreshments

If you’re getting married in the sun, expect guests to flock to this ice bucket of Mason Jar packed lemonades for the prettiest and most refreshing sip of the day. This is a great option for outdoor weddings during the summer, where you can keep drinks cold, capped and therefore free from flies and bugs and any other outdoorsy things. Photo via

mason-jar-stamped-paper-napkins-wedding

Mason Stamped Paper Napkins

Burlap and brown paper works seriously well with the whole rustic country theme, and these paper napkins have the whole idea down to a T. These jar stamped napkins come from Etsy and are priced at 21 dollars for a pack of 50. We think these are ideal for a dessert table or to hand out with your personal Mason Jar desserts!

mason-jar-table-plan-wedding

Mason Jar Inspired Escort Cards

These escort cards are very much in the same vein as the paper napkins above, and would work really well with a cool and casual theme. Created with Kraft card, they are a simple and cute way to display your guests’s names and tables without too much of a fuss. Hang with some twine and some cute mini pegs and you’re done!

Find burlap table runners, hessian twine, Kraft paper luggage tags and more in the weddingsonline shop’s vintage themed section!

mason-jar-twine-pew-ends

Mason Jar Hanging Pew Ends

This has to be one of our favour décor items for outdoor ceremonies. The hanging pew end is just super pretty and creates a really romantic atmosphere for an outdoor ceremony and gives the bride a beautiful frame as she makes her way up the aisle. Plus you can take them down and use them as centrepieces for the afters! Definitely one for the Pinterest board. Photo via

mason-jar-ice-cream-bar

Mason Jar Ice Cream Bar

Right so if the strawberry shortcake dessert was a little too healthy looking for ya, check this out – A Mason Jar Ice Cream Bar. So this is how it goes – ice cream is placed into individual jars and kept in the freezer until it’s time for the big reveal, then guests grab a Mason, pop open the lid, fill it will hundreds and thousands, chocolate chips and just about anything else they can get a scoop of and simply enjoy the most amazing wedding snack ever invented.

Dipped in Glitter Mason Jars

This is a great way to make your Mason Jars a little different to the regular glass bottles. Try painting your jars either a single colour or with stripes or polka dots or dipping them in gold glitter to make it all a little more glam. These mint and gold jars are from Charmingly Kirsten who has a bunch of cool versions available from her Etsy shop.

Mason Drinking Jars

Probably the most obvious use for the Mason Jar at weddings – as it is at most newly opened cafes around the world – is for drinking out of. Have them double up as favours by popping a vintage name tag around the top and be sure to have a big sign beside them to make sure everyone knows where to go! Photo via

Pink Lemonade Mason Jar Children’s Drinks

Even if you don’t have one for everyone in the audience, why not make the kids feel special by serving their own personal lemonade in a mason jar with a pretty straw. If anything it should keep them busy for a while anyway!
