We all know how popular the use of mason jars as flower vases is at the moment. They give that rustic feel and can be used to display not just flowers but candles, lollies and anything else that takes your fancy! Collecting an assortment of mason jars is as simple as keeping the jam jar (and asking your friends and families to do the same) after the last spoonful instead of chucking it in the recycling bin! Easy!

When it comes to filling the jars you don’t have to necessarily spend a lot of money on flowers either. Here, you can see how some simple and humble offcuts from the above bridal bouquets can be used very effectively to pretty up the tables. Ask your florist to keep your offcuts instead of casting them aside and you’ll be able to keep costs down, whilst still ensuring that your overall floral look and theme blend well together. Here we used Silver Suede, Hydrangea, Lisianthus, Roses and Freesia, while the tiny jars held a collection of offcuts and the effect was wonderfully romantic and rustic.

If you’ve managed to collect so many jars that you’re not sure what you will do with all of them after the wedding, consider giving them out as your wedding favors. Guests will not only have a lovely memento of your day that they can continue to fill with fresh blooms, but it’s a very economical idea for a wedding favor.

If collecting is not your thing then jars can also be readily bought on ebay or hired for the day.
