How bought using these phrases?

Love is a fruit in season at all times

Love is sweet enjoy this treat

To perserve our Love

Jam Packed with Love

I also found these websites that you could check out for the jars. Good Luck.

My parents and I always got our canning supplies at Fleet farm which was our local hardware store. I know my grocery store also stocks canning supplies. If you can source them locally you don’t have to pay shipping. If your grocery store does carry them, but doesn’t have the quantities that you need you can always talk to the manager about making a special order for you which would come on their regular truck and you wouldn’t have to pay shipping.

The best price I found locally was $8 for a dozen 4 oz jars.  This was at Wegmans grocery store.

My jams are all done, and I didn’t use anything cutesy.  Just our names, “thank you” and the flavor of jam.  They look terrific though.  I’ll post a pic after the wedding.

@MSbride2Bee:  I saw them in huge crates recently at Big Lots and I remember thinking “WOW that’s cheap” but I don’t specifically remember how much they were now

@MSbride2Bee:   You don’t mention your location, but if you’re southern, try putting an ad in the “wanted” section of Craigslist. Sometimes people down here have them in abundance and are willing to get rid of them cheap or even give them away. And it’s ok if they’re slightly mismatched- generally they’re so alike (with a few minor details) that people won’t notice they’re different as long as they’re the same size, especially if you add your own label and stuff. Also, check Hobby Lobby; occasionally the one down here has some mason jars in their glassware section and they’re always having 50% off sales.
