Hi, loves! Emma here. What do you think of the whole mason jar mug craze? If you’re a wedding-obsessed girl like me, you’ve seen mason jars turned into so many things from vases to drinking mugs — I’ve literally seen cupcakes packed inside ’em as wedding or bridal shower favors. And yet, every year, mason jar mugs and weddings go hand-in-hand near the top of many rustic / western themed wedding wish-lists. The mason jar mug, also known as a tumbler, is essentially a mason jar + a handle, so it’s more obvious to guests that they are to be used as drinking glasses for the night. (See: here.)
A mason jar glass plus a handle. Pretty simple, right? So why is everyone stark raving crazy over them?
They are simple and that’s precisely what people love about them! Mason jar mugs are a throwback to simpler times: sitting on a porch rocker, sipping on sweet tea in the summertime. Because of this, the mason jar mug is selling like hotcakes. We’ve seen massive quantities of mason jar mugs in bulk for some weddings, where the couple wanted their entire wedding to use them as drinking glasses. We’ve seen them used at the head table for wedding parties, or at sweetheart tables just for the bride and groom. People rave over the use of mason jar mugs at weddings — especially outdoor tented receptions — because they work well as drinking cups at outdoor bars (especially DIY drink bars where guests serve themselves), they’re more eco-friendly as they make less waste than paper or plastic cups, and mugs work well as a take-home wedding favor, too.
Brides love giving their bridesmaids mason jar mugs because they are functional and customizable. Mugs can be personalized with each bridesmaid’s name and used to re-hydrate all day long; or, you know, to keep the mimosas a’flowin’ while getting ready and for fill-ups at your freaking awesome diy beer bar.
Now, just between you and I, I love mason jars like the next person, but I think drinking out of mason jars without a straw is the WORST. You, too? I can’t be the only one who feels this way. There’s something so bizarre to me about drinking out of the lip of the jar; it feels more like I’m sipping beer or wine out of a pickle jar. It is not a pleasant experience to me. And that (along with a myriad of other reasons), my friends, is precisely why this is the mason jar mug bridesmaids (and everyone, really) want this year.
Not glass, but plastic.
And here’s why!
The Mason Jar Mug Bridesmaids Love
The mason jar mug bridesmaids are raving this year about makes total sense. These cute tumblers, spotted at Lukin for Love, are wayyy better than glass mason jars, particularly for outdoor weddings:
- This mug is easily portable, since it is plastic and more lightweight than glass
- There’s no need to drink directly from the jar (yuck) because there’s a lid and straw inside
- The aforementioned lid and straw keep bugs away (another serious plus)
- These mason jar mugs won’t shatter on the ground if/when dropped,so you won’t have glass everywhere
Note: #4 is also a huge plus if your venue prohibits glass, but you still want the cute look of these mason jar mugs
And as if you needed more reasons to join in on this whole mason jar mug craze, just go ahead and take a look at these mugs yourself! I know once you see how cute they really are, especially all personalized, you’ll want one for yourself.
In fact, this one would look really good on ya this summer, sitting poolside. Don’t you think?
Bridesmaids will love using their mason jar mugs out and about, whether running to bridesmaid dress appointments, while sipping on ice cold coffee by the pool, getting re-hydrated after a killer Zumba workout, or for tossing in your beach bag (this bag is huge) for your upcoming beach bachelorette party adventure.
Take a look at the mason jar mug bridesmaids collection from Lukin for Love, below. You can completely customize the font and colors used to coordinate with your wedding palette or each bridesmaid’s favorite color. They don’t all have to match, so feel free to get creative and mix it up a bit!
You can use these mason jar mugs as be my bridesmaid proposal gifts, too, if you’d like, and if you do, fill each one with additional gifties inside. Some examples include a pretty nail polish to match the bridesmaid dresses (like this), a set of these fun hair ties, a small emergency kit for the wedding day, a tube of this amazing mascara, a few of these travel-size makeup remover wipes, and a gift card to her favorite place (you know, she can get cute shoes from here or restock her makeup collection from here or give her the gift of on-the-go coffee refills from here).
Oh, and if you’re wondering about the guys, well… guys are so masculine and I think they really don’t mind drinking out of thick glass jars or glass bottles or cans. At least, that’s what I’ve heard in my, um, independent research study (i.e. I asked Andrew and he was like, yeah, drinking out of glass isn’t really that big a deal for dudes). So, for them, allow us to recommend these cozies because at the very least, they shouldn’t be letting those brews get cold. :)
This is more their style, don’t you think?
