I would honestly make enough so each guest could have one, reguardless of age. How many kids are you actually having? Most of the time, guests won’t take each and every favor, so you’re bound to have leftovers, and in the event that your favors are so awesome that each is taken, I’m sure someone will take the leftovers!

I would think if you’re old enough to have a seat at the table, you’re old enough for your own favor…unless the little ones are getting something different, won’t they feel left out?

I don’t know if you care about the aesthetics of it, but it would look best with one at every place setting, so if the kid has a seat they should technically get a favor.

Apple butter sounds like a household/ kitchen gift. I would give a jar per fam/ couple. Label them accordingly so people know it’s meant for their household. The Carters / The Carter Family/ Mr and Mrs Carter

@keevolpi:  Yeah, I’d do a jar per family too. You could give a family or couple a larger 8oz jar if you’d like.

I would give one to each guest. We are talking a small jar of apple butter here.

Do you really want parents having to deal with upset children who don’t get a favor? If you don’t want to go to the troube of making the extra apple butter, you could provide a different favor for the children.

@keevolpi:  Kids love favors and unless it’s an adult favor like wine or a corkscrew I would provide them for everyone.

@keevolpi:  Our favors were loose tea in glass test tubes, and I put together about 100. We had 120 guests at our wedding (including ~10 kids) and not everyone took one. So I think you should plan on making enough favors to cover all of the adults at your wedding (i’d say people over 10, I really wouldn’t expect kids under 10 to grab a jar of apple butter) and don’t be too surprised if you have some leftover. (Because realistically, there are almost always favors leftover at every wedding!)

How many guests are you expecting? and what percent or number are kids?

yeah definitely just put one at each place setting, or make one for each person. Families will take them home and their parents will use them for the kids if the kids are to young to do so themselves.

Let’s be honest, the kids are the only ones who’ll notice if they DON’T get a favor!!

I vote the kids DON’T need a favor–I was a child at a few family weddings, and my sister and I used to take the favors of all the adults who didn’t want them or left them behind!

I once left a wedding with TEN mini boxes of lilac seeds!

i would make enough for everyone.

if there are leftovers (some people didn’t take), then more for you to enjoy.

some people may also take more than one.
