Designing the best mason jar wedding centerpiece

As your big day draws near, the excitement grows, spreading out to every area of importance. Let’s face it, everything is important when it comes to your wedding. 


And we mean everything! From your dress and suit, to the vows and the decor, it all comes together to make it one of your most memorable days. As it should! 


One of the most important elements of wedding planning is the decor! Many brides dream of the special day, and some even decide on a theme long before the infamous question is asked. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that either. Knowing what you want is half the battle.   


Your wedding is important and should reflect you and your partner 100%. Every couple has their own style and flavor that reflects them and their journey of togetherness and love. When considering decor, those are some of the things that will help you to narrow down your theme for the big day. 


Believe it or not, one of the most time-consuming parts of decor planning is deciding on centerpieces. Probably because there were so many lovely things to pick from. 

Do you want floral, or are you going for a more rustic vibe? How about a nice blend of both? Will you be going the DIY (do it yourself) route, or are you having everything pre-made? These are all questions you should consider. 


DIY wedding pieces is one of the many ways couples can choose to add their own personal touches to their wedding. It’s also a fun way of getting both partners involved in the planning process, especially since in most cases, one partner tends to be more involved than the other. 


Luckily, in the world of DIY (which has gained tremendous popularity, by the way) you have the option to get really creative, while being precise about your choice, all while saving a buck! 

A super cute option that can work for nearly any wedding theme is mason jars! There are so many cool ways to decorate them and add them into your centerpieces. 


Here are some ideas that you can incorporate into your DIY mason jar. 


  1. Spray paint your jar in any color you like. Once the paint has dried, seal your paint to keep it from being sticky. 
  2. Wrap your painted mason jars with burlap for an added edge to your pieces. 
  3. Use twines of your choice to wrap around the burlap to keep it in place. 

This will create a basic mason jar centerpiece. You can then add your own contents to match your wedding theme.

For a rustic theme, you can add battery operated candles or even photos from your relationship. 


If you’re going for a more whimsical theme, fairy lights are a great choice! You can place the fairy lights in or around the mason jars to add a cool fairytale vibe to your centerpiece. 


Are you all about flowers? For a classic, traditional look, add your favorite flowers. Baby’s breath and roses are awesome choices!  


The good thing about using mason jars as a part of your decor is that they are totally reusable for other occasions. Simply switch up the contents to match your look and event. Or save a few and use them as centerpieces in your home after the wedding. That way, you will always have a piece of your wedding decor incorporated into your home together!
