I would LOVE that!  I think it is a really cute idea.  I got jars of jam at a wedding recently (he proposed in a berry field) and i used them real quick!

i have received honey twice as favours. both came in cute jars with a tag that made reference to the day being “sweet.” 1 bride also attached a mini wooden honey dipper to the side of the jar and i still use it all the time! (i have honey in my tea) i know that this bride bought a 10 litre keg of honey direct from a beekeeper and it was very inexpensive.

I would love it! People give jam and maple syrup as favors, so I think honey is a good sweet favor.

I work for a caterer and have actually seen someone do this.

It was really great. The couple also had a specialty drink sweetened with honey. Some guests used the honey throughout the night in the drink, in tea, and even on their chicken. J I thought it was really cute.

I think it’s great, especially if you use a honey that is local to your area.  We’re doing jam because my mom wanted to make some but honey was also an option because if we were doing favors, I wanted something local and food related.

I use a lot of honey so I’d defnitely use it. The only problem would be coming from out of town and not wanting to check luggage on the way home. Our local honey co made beeswax lip balm for us with our names on the labels – we figured they were easier to transport.

I LOVE this idea.  I was trying to get my cousin to do this for her favors because her dad raises honeybees.  I think a cute saying would be: “So happy you could ‘bee’ here” lol.  I don’t eat a lot of honey but I still think it’s a fantastic favor idea…something I would actually use.

Love it!  AND it doubles as a bee reference 🙂 Woot!

No one in my immediate family actually likes honey, so it would be wasted on us. I would probably give my jar of honey to someone at the wedding who would appreciate it more. That being said, I don’t think it is a tacky favor at all and it is impossible to please everybody. I say go for it!

Really cute! BUT remember that if you have family and friends who are flying honey is considered a liquid so make sure it is 3 oz or less!
