    @vess5:  Per person. The last time I was at a wedding, FI and I got a box of lollies to share but my single friend got one all for herself!

    MIss Bettsy does not like sharing her lollies! lol

    We’re doing jam and we’re giving one per person (actually two because we’re doing two different kinds) but I think it’s only really possible because we’re having a small wedding (about 40 people). The only guests not getting jam are the kids…there are a couple of teenagers that will get their own jam though because they are basically adults. Do what you can afford! One jar of honey would go a lot further than one jar of jam (at least in my household), keep that in mind.

    I’d do 1 per person, but if you’re having a lot of kids, maybe do a kid friendly favor as well just for them

    @vess5:  I think one for pickles is fine.  If it was like cookies of lollipops I’d say twp also, but for pickles or honey… or my favor, which is homemade vanilla extract, I feel like one per couple makes sense.  (I may be biased though!)

    @vess5:  You could do them in half height spears in jelly sized jars, particularly if you did different pickle flavors. Honestly, so long as you buy the jars by the case Annd store the finished pickles back in the case, it shouldn’t be too hard to store or transport them.

    How would you inform your guests that it’s one per hoisehold? I would worry that people would just take one each without realizong it and then some people and some households won’t get any!

    One per household. The easiest way to notify couples they get one is table place cards. Put the couple’s name on the table and center the jam between the two plate settings. Or use the escort table where each jar is lined up with a tag for both couple’s names.

    One per household. I’ve been to weddings where we have gotten one bottle of wine, one cake thing, etc. when it’s food- it’s one per house.

    I think one per HH is totally fine, and even preferable in this case.

    You can do either, if you do one for household maybe you could have like 10 extra jars on a table for people to take, just in case someone really likes pickles?
