    Remember that your guests likely won’t have room in their suitcases for a bunch of bulky favours, especially ones that can break. I would stick to just one! We didn’t even have favours and I don’t think anyone noticed.

    Your mom is dumb. They might love you but no one wants your picture in a frame lol.

    i love the honey idea. We did a local jam and it was a hit!

    I’m from Hawaii so I’m probably a bit biased, but I love this idea—and I definitely think it’s enough. If you DID do multiple favors, I wouldn’t care for a picture frame or jordan almonds. I’d sooner go for a local made in Hawaii soap like this:

    One question though. Is this a destination wedding / are most of your guests flying in? Bc the honey jar you posted is 4.5oz which would exceed the carry-on limits. As someone who rarely checks bags, I’d have to either eat it all before catching a flight out or chuck it 🙁

    I don’t think favors make guests feel appreciated.

    I like the honey in theory but it’s too large for TSA liquids guidelines for carry-on baggage.

    The honey is super cute but, I agree with PPs about potential TSA issues. The soap is a brilliant compromise. I love it! Let us know what your Fiance thinks!

    I was also thinking about TSA requirements. Do they make a smaller sized jar? I really like the idea of the honey and think it’s super unique. 

    By the way, everyone who obsesses over favors needs to get a grip. It’s not expected and anything should be appreciated. I will never understand people who bitch about free stuff!

    I don’t think favours are necessary at all, so I definitely don’t think that one favour is “not enough”.  I would be very happy to receive the honey.  I don’t entirely understand the TSA situation – where I live, you can take any liquids you like in your carry on luggage as long as you’re flying domestically, and you only have to follow the liquids rule if you’re flying internationally (in which case you wouldn’t take honey anyway because it wouldn’t get through customs).  But if in the US you have to follow the liquids rule with domestic travel, then I would definitely switch to soap, because I would be sad to receive the honey but then not be able to take it home with me!

    I honestly don’t think guests even care for favours. Many weddings I’ve been to have had beautiful homemade decorated shortbread and French macarons but lots got left behind.

    We had a dyi candy station with overseas candy. It was a huge hit

    I really want that honey lavender soap. I’d love this as a favor.
