My Stand on Mason Jar Weddings

You may have seen my Facebook post on Mason Jar weddings, ( click to view ) and my opinion remains the same.

Feel free to share your opinion.

I have nothing against mason jars and think they are many ways to incorporate them into details adding up to your wedding. are a cute addition to engagement parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, breakfast the day after your wedding and maybe a BBQ party or if you are having a wedding in a barn, with long farm tables - they would work well into that setting.

I've done my share of them and gone along with the trend, but they limit creativity and design options. I have tried my best to work with them. Some weddings I've done, clients are willing to spend more on flowers, because of the "savings" on the containers ($1 jars ), where others take the savings to a whole new place thinking jars $1 + flowers $5 = very inexpensive centerpiece and a way to save money. I really do understand the costs of having a wedding and how things quickly add up and can balloon out of control if you are not careful, but a simple glass vase really doesn't cost too much more.....i can show you several!

Right: The narrow mouth on the jars limit movement and quantity of blossoms that can be used. You can go up with the flowers, making them tall, but you cant get width. The only way to make a centerpiece that is appropriate for a large round table is to use 3 or more vases and even then, in my opinion, this is not the "optimal" choice.

Your wedding is meant to be the most elegant day of your life with the most important people of your life. That being said, it should be as beautiful and elegant as possible and mason jars are not elegant (just my opinion). After all the  planning that goes into a wedding, I don't think that "cute" is how most couples want their wedding described as.
