Top 5 Mason Jar & Firefly Wedding Invitation Ideas

Is the mason jar wedding theme alive and well?

It seems like this simple invention by John Landis Mason in 1858, was everywhere only a few years ago. So much so, that there seems to have been a bit of a backlash against the poor glass vessel.

“No more mason jar weddings!” was the cry from many popular wedding blogs, vendors, and media outlets like Huffington Post. In fact, a quick Google Trends search of the past 10 years shows that, indeed, the mason jar wedding may have reached its peak in the summer of 2013 and has slowly declined since then.

Mason Jar Themed Wedding Inspiration

The three real weddings below have some great ideas for how to use mason jars as centerpieces, decor, or even as drinking glasses. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination when it comes to this versatile decor item.

Now, if only we could capture some fireflies in our mason jars we would be set! Remember, though, that these wonderful bugs were not meant to exist in captivity. If you capture them, enjoy their glow for a night. Then, release them back into a damp, vegetated area so they can live out the rest of their days.
