So I have decided to make homemade jelly for my wedding favors, but I want to set them on a seperate table instead of at the tables people will be sitting at. Also I want a sign by them saying to take 1 jar of jelly per family/household/couple. What is a cute non tacky way of saying that On a sign?

Maybe just putting it at a place setting would make it easier?

“As thanks for sharing our day, we’d like each family to take home a jar of homemade jelly.” Not quite as blunt as ‘one per family’, but to me the “a” implies one.

I agree with PP, you are probably better off puting them on the table. At the end of the night when people are tired and on their way out they may just grab and not stop to read or even notice the sign. Having them at the tables is not only easier for your guests to remember to take them, but also saves you the trouble of having to actually state that favors are limited. It will go without saying when there is one per couple at each table.

We aren’t doing a seating chart, so people will just be sitting wherever so no telling how many families will be at a certain table.

There’s no nice way to say that, unfortunately.

I would put something like “100 jars of jam made with love, for 100 loving families.” or however many families there are! Cute favor! 🙂

I like KatesTheWord:
suggestion! We were going to have a similar sign for our favor, but then we figured that I would rather have them gone. I figure if someone really wants the favor they will make sure they get one 🙂 That is a great favor!!

“Spreading the love from our family to yours.”
…one jar at a time.

People will still take one each poem or no poem. Is there a young guest you can appoint to man the favor table?

What about putting little tags on the jelly jars with their names on them? “Find your name and take your jar!”

I would just make an announcement at dinner that you have made jelly as a favor for each household and point out where it is. Or is it possible to label the jars? Make a small tag that say “Smith Family” or something like that?

I wouldn’t stress over this. Most people won’t take favors and I’m sure most people would only take one. That’s been my experience at least

I agree with molokoa:
‘s suggestion, you could label each jar with the names of the couple/family!
The only other way I can think of is hand them out during the night as you thank each couple/family for coming.
