I love jam favours. They’re pretty, tasty, and totally something I’d love to receive. My friend made strawberry jam for her wedding, and it was delectable. Many guests actually opened up their jam to eat with the bread on their tables! The size was pretty small, but the impact was large – it was really nice to know that she put in the effort to make them herself.

If you dont’ wanna do it yourself, I have found things on Etsy like little jars of honey that would work great!

I love the idea of homemade jam as favors (and totally agree that edible favors are best), but keep in mind whether any of your guests will be flying in for the wedding. If they are, anything larger than 3oz/100ml can’t be carried onto the plane and will have to be put in check-in luggage, and a lot of people don’t care to check a suitcase now that it’s so expensive.

Yes, jam is considered liquid/gel, and I know of people who have had to throw out perfectly good homemade jam at the checkpoint because the jar was too large…

I think homemade jam is the PERFECT favor!! They are homemade and thoughtful, and edible!  Strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry are my personal favs. I think 4 or 8 oz jars would be fine, depending on the number you are making.

I would LOVE that favor as a guest.  Strawberry is my personal favorite, but you could do other flavors if they went better with your colors – this would definitely NOT be a favor that would get left on the table!
