Mason Jar Monday: Our Wedding Invitation

A few years back while planning my wedding, I never thought that I would somehow combine my love for mason jars into our wedding invitation. My thought process began with having mason jars on our invitations Then somehow, after staring at a jar on my dresser, I managed to take my ideas and turn the invitation into a jar.. Our wedding invitation is definitely my most favorite design project that I've ever done along with one of my most cherished items.


 Our invitations are more than just an invite with information for our guests. Mason jars are a true reflection of our lifestyle and heritage. I will never ever forget the moment when my mother in law found a bunch of antique jars in the root cellar that was once on our farm. My husband and I were only dating at the time, but she handed me the oldest and most valuable jar and said, "Here. Take it. I know you will cherish and appreciate it." I've never seen a jar like it before. It's my most favorite, traveling around the house in various spots until I find the "perfect spot."





Along with our jar-shaped invitation, I also designed coordinating RSVP cards displaying a jar with our initials hung by a hook. I embellished the invitation sleeves with raffia and a little mason jar cut out sticker including our names and our wedding date. To top off the mason jar theme, the outside postage envelopes included a return address label with mason jars and our initials.

 A coordinating thank you card was used after the wedding which included a variety of three different jars hanging on a line. 


I just love seeing the set all together. It was a stressful, but fun project. My mom often teased me as I holed myself up in my room trying to come up with the perfect idea for an invitation. I think all that time was well worth it in the end as I'll always have these mementos of our wedding to cherish.

I am entering this post at the County Fair linkup party!

  4. The wedding we went to was obviously supremely costly, but whoever paid that got their money's worth in spades. The lighting and decoration at vow renewal location was magical.
