you could put pie ingredients into the jar in baggies or something and print out the recipe, like a kit? or like.. “just add apples” if you dont want food sitting out. we wanted country favors, we didn tiny jrs of honey and jam decorated with fabric lids.

Thats a very cute idea! My family and I made all the deserts for my wedding and the venue was very accomidating about storing them in their refridgerator. I would set them out towards the end of the night with little spoons so that people can snack on them on their ride home. If you can’t figure out getting the pies to work other cute ideas I’ve seen are drink mixes, baking mixes, cupcakes(probably wouldn’t be as likely to spoil as pies might), local honeys, jams, and even just filled with candy!

Arggg….I feel for you.  Favours are such a pain.  We decided to do something that will last since I was going to be making them I wanted people to use them.

We were going for a rustic modern theme so I made bubble magnets and put them in silver tins.  They were CHEAP (I think $1.86 each), easy to make (even though I had 440 to do), and people LOVED them.  You could put any image you want to give you that rustic or personal touch.  I made a set for the ladies (pictures of us) and a set for the men (airplane parts as my husband is a pilot).

You could always sell your jars if you decide to change ideas as I am sure they will sell fast.

@cindyjill:  What an awesome idea!  I love the “modified version” of putting the ingredients in the jars.  Plus, look how cute they can turn out (you could even incorporate your wedding colors into them somehow and include cute tags! Laughing):

Do they have to be homemade.  Maybe buying them a day before the wwedding would work since those store bought pies tend to have a longer shelf life than homemade ones. I have no other ideas.

Definitely yes to dry ingredients in the mason jars! So cute! Maybe instead of pie you can do a favorite cookie? Or cake? Pies just have the a few too many components, if you ask me. Or you can make jars of just the pie filling so they can get their own pie crust, fill it with your filling, and enjoy!
