Mason jars have been ruling the mainstream aesthetic for the past few years. But nowhere are Mason jars more prevalent than in the world of weddings. It’s not difficult to see why the simple hold-all containers are so beloved: they’re reusable, versatile, affordable, and customizable to your own aesthetic— making them the gold standard for wedding DIY decor.
That Country Edge
For fall weddings, fill your mason jars with harvest-inspired wild things, like dried grasses and richly hued foliage. And don’t forget twine for the perfect accent.
Add Florals and Fruit
A spring or summer wedding is the perfect time of year to add some fresh flowers and fruit to your Mason jar centrepieces. You can mix and match your florals and greenery, or create a theme per table—there’s no right or wrong way to do it!
Create Romantic Lighting
For outdoor weddings, create a candle-lit feel with a modern (and generally safer) twist by using Mason jars to craft elegant and flattering lighting into the night.
For the adventurous DIY-er, try your hand at a Mason jar DIY chandelier. You will undoubtedly make a bold statement, that will have your guests talking long after the reception.
Dress Up Outdoor Aisles
Mason jars are often used to house flowers and other trinkets, but not all vases need to adorn tables. They can also be used to line the aisles during an outdoor ceremony.
Accent ordinary guest seats
Make your guests seats appear a little more interesting by hanging a Mason jar with flowers on the seats that line the aisle. It’s simple, and an inexpensive option to include in any outdoor ceremony.
Make Them Metallic
Selecting a metallic hue, like bronze or gold will add a little elegance to centrepieces and general wedding decor. It can also make things look more luxe and expensive, while bringing your colour scheme together.
Use Them as Table Numbers
Decorate your decor with pretty table displays, using Mason jars to hold flowers, greenery, candles, glitter, fairy lights—whatever your heart desires. Just add a table number to complete the look.
Fill In the Blanks
If you don’t have designated seating, in addition to serving as your guests’ glasses for the evening, Mason jars can also hold cutlery and napkins during an informal reception.
DIY Wedding Favours
Hook your hungry guests up with a snack before hors d’oeuvres are served, or send them home with a late night goodie bag, like this rustic caramel-corn mix.
Find ways to incorporate two DIY’s in one, like this Mason jar terrarium that can be used as a place card, and a take-home favour.
