I did homemade caramel about a week and a half out from our wedding and just kept the jars in boxes in in our spare fridge. I used wine boxes from the liquor store. I stacked the jars in the little dividers. It helped to keep the weight more manageable for moving them from home to the venue since all my jars came in one BIG heavy box from the retailer. I used 2 oz jars from here. I ordered 170 jars with plastic lids and it came to $115 with shipping (shipping was $20). I was really happy with the quality and it was shipped really quickly. 

I likely would do your sauce about a week out since you don’t know how long it’s going to be until people use it. Really though, depending on the ingredients you could likely do it a bit further out, I’m just a bit paranoid. Maybe do a tiny test batch and see how long it lasts in your fridge.

That sounds awesome, can I please come to your wedding?????

I would do it like a week out…maybe you can get some of those metal seals to cover the opening with before you put the lid on. I think that would make them be fresh for a longer period of time. Or if you could shrink wrap some plastic around the lid, like you find in the store.  I think its a great idea, and if you package it right, you can do it at any point in between now and the wedding. I mean, store bought sauce is good for a least a year unopened, right?
