    I’d be happy with that favor.  I’ll always prefer an edible favor over a non-edible one.  But, unless you’re really set on having the custom wooden box part, I personally don’t think it adds much more to the gift.  I’d be just as happy with 2 jars of jam in a little gift bag, instead of in a wooden box I’d probably throw out in the future.

    I agree with Bluesteel, I would be very happy with the jams without the box, the box will probably be thrown out at some point.  Do you have any pictures???

    We did jam (we had a great time making it!) & it was a HUGE hit! We had guests show up to our day after brunch either saying they had forgotten theirs and did we have leftovers & a few asking if we had extras that they could have. 🙂

    We just did jars, with ribbon & a tag wrapped around them. I feel guilty throwing favours I have received out, so was conscious not to give anything someone would feel beholden to use, plus it saved a lot of time and money by packaging them simply.

    Sounds like a great favor to me.  It’s edible and cute plus I love that you put a little of yourself into it by using your favorite flavors.

    I like it!  I would actually take your wedding info off the box, though.  I would be more likely to use it if it didn’t have someone else’s names and wedding date on it.

    I might or might not take the jams home. I probably wouldn’t take the spreader, especially if I was flying to your wedding (I almost never check a bag and the spreader will look like  a knife on the airport securtiy machines) and I would definitely leave the box behind. I don’t like to collect things with other peoples’ names on them.

    I always prefer edible favors.  We gave bourbon balls!

    I would skip the wooden box, even if you have a connection to get them made cheaply what use would your guests have for a small wooden box with your wedding info on it?  Just put “spread the love” on a tag and attach it to the jars of jam.

    I personally hate jam, but I would love a favor like this! It’s really cute how it’s each of your favriote flavours. The box seems a bit much really, it’s a lot of extra cost for something people wouldn’t have much need for.

    I love that idea! Edibles are the best favor IMO. 🙂

    That sounds adorable and delicious! I would love to get something like that, it’s much more personal and creative than favors I’ve seen at weddings in the past.
