This Mason Jar Jewelry is Cute for Rustic Weddings

Mason jars are a staple for rustic weddings, and although they’ve been trending for a long time, we still see those darling jars everywhere we look. When we spotted these mason jar jewelry pieces over at Ellen B Keepsakes, we were inspired by Tracy’s lovely creations! These pieces would make cute gift ideas for the bride and bridesmaids who loves all things rustic or country. Today we’re sharing two mason jar bracelets and a necklace from Ellen B Keepsakes, a petite pair of earrings we spotted at Obsessories, and a darling mason jar jewelry dish by Zinnia Designs.

Where to Buy Mason Jar Drinking Glasses / Mugs

Brides: wondering where to buy mason jar drinking glasses for your wedding? Want to make mason jar drinking glasses but want the kind with a handle? You’ve come to the right place! This post will show you the best places to buy mason jars with handles to use as drinking glasses AND how to save a bunch of money doing it. Read on to find out more…

Where to Buy Mason Jar Drinking Glasses (w/ Handles)

Where to Buy Mason Jar Drinking Glasses

I’ve purchased many mason jars in the past, and I always order from the same place. Amazon. Why? I can almost never find the mason jar drinking glasses with the handle at my local stores, nor do I feel like picking up two or three boxes of quart or pint-sized mason jars and lugging them around with me all the way home. Plus, ordering mason jars in bulk is always a money-saver, which matters oh-so-much when planning your wedding.

Libby Fair Mason Jar Mugs

If I had to pick, the Libby Fair 16 1/2 oz. mason jar drinking glasses are my fave. They even feature a cute little country fair emblem on them, which is perfect for a country wedding.

Golden Harvest Mason Jar Drinking Glasses

You can also try these by Golden Harvest, which feature a smooth front.

Ball Mason Jar Drinking Glasses

The most inexpensive ones are probably these by Ball, but they’re a bit smaller (12 oz) and I haven’t tried them myself, so I won’t vouch for them. The reviews look promising, though!

Anyways, I always buy mason jars here because they arrive right to my door (you can get a lot of ’em for free two-day shipping, which is awesome, especially in a last-minute party panic) and the prices are always so reasonable. Whenever brides ask us where to buy mason jar drinking glasses, mason jars, or jelly jars, the answer is always Amazon. Plus, you can pair ’em with striped drinking straws easily all-in-one order. And, stripey straws make drinking out of mason jars infinitely more awesome. (And, some people just don’t like to drink out of a jar, so a straw definitely helps.) Besides, have you seen how many amazing striped and patterned drinking straws are available today? It’s amazing. Ah, well, we’ll talk about that in an upcoming post. :)

Hope it helps!

Mason Jar Drinks with Ginger Ale

Well, it continues to be a sweltering hot summer out there! I’m not complaining. ;) When you’re planning an outdoor summer wedding, though, keep an eye on your refreshments. It’s important to keep guests well-hydrated, especially if you’re serving alcohol. One of our favorite suggestions? Mason jar drinks with ginger ale. These charming glasses are easy to DIY, too. Buy this size jar, add ginger ale, strawberries, and plenty of ice. Serve. It’s non-alcoholic, too, which means guests of all ages will enjoy this refreshment.
