    I like the jar of honey or the truffles.  I would be worried that the honey wouldn’t travel well since you would have to check it on the plane and it could break.

    I think the honey or jam would be great!  I would worry about breakage during travel especially with the wine.

    About breakage, I was thinking more for the guests, if any of them are traveling from far away.  If everyone is local, though, it wouldn’t be a concern.  I still like the honey idea, though – it’s really personal and yummy!  Smile

    I voted for wine as what I would like. HOWEVER!!! You need to take into account if people are alcoholics, in AA, can’t drink for health reasons, or simply just don’t drink. Something like a bottle of wine could be so tempting. I honestly probably would go with something else if you have a large wedding and you do not know everyone personally. It may be safer to go a different route.

    I like the idea of wine, though I personally would worry about diving the wine to the guys and the stoppers to the ladies. Every guest list is different, but I know a lot of people are attending our wedding without a SO and there would probably be some bitterness.

    With that said, I voted for jam/honey. That sounds delicious and it’s so easy to personalize!

    I like either the honey and jam or the chocolate.  For the wine- while I like wine as a favor, I would not be a happy camper of I went to a wedding and the men were given one favor and the women another.  Why not give the women wine too? What about the single ladies- the would end up with a stopper but no wine.  Many people might not mind, but I would worry that it would offend some people.  So I would say either give everyone (not just the men) wine, or do something else…

    I really liked the homemade jam idea!  My friend gave me a jar of his family’s homemade jam once and it was to die for!  Plus I really liked having something that could only be from one place!  The honey is a cute idea too!  I wouldn’t worry about either of those breaking during guests’ travel.  Carrying a small empty jar is low risk, but a small full jar (especially full of something dense like honey or jam) is VERY unlikely to break.  Cute ideas!

    I love the jam or honey idea…very personal! I’m not so keen on the wine idea because it’s hard to tell sometimes if people don’t drink for personal reasons or if they’re in recovery.

    The wine & stoppers idea is great. You could always have them on a display table and let people take what they want instead of at each place setting or seperating by gender. We’re doing just the wine stoppers at my daughter’s wedding too.

    I think it depends on what kind of wedding you’re having. I personally wouldn’t take the honey or jam home,but I’m sure lots of people would take the extras!
