We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks,
“I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…
Mason Jars with Handles
Where to Buy
How to Keep ‘Em Covered
If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you’ll want to keep the mason jars covered until guests are ready to drink from them. You can do one of two things:
1. Add a Lid
A lid can keep your mason jar clear of debris. Try a daisy lid, which has small openings (but will lessen the chance of anything getting in).
A daisy lid also has a hole in the center — perfect for adding your favorite drinking straws!
2. Place them top-down
If you want to save money on lids, skip them altogether! Instead, place the mason jars with the top face-down on your drink table. This will keep jars clean and ready for filling up at the bar!
