Are you looking for those ultra-sweet (and delish!) honey wedding favors you see everywhere? We found them! And the maker behind these highly sought-after honey favors, Miss Shelley, is the sweetest we know! It’s no secret that edible wedding favors are the best kind to give to guests: people enjoy them and there are never any leftovers. Since a wedding favor should be a token of your appreciation, we can’t think of anything sweeter to give your guests than mini jars of honey. Today we’re talking about why honey wedding favors are a great choice for guests, introducing you to the lovely Miss Shelley’s Jams & Jellies, and inspiring you with some of our favorite honey jars from her shop. Enjoy!
Honey Wedding Favors
Honey wedding favors are always a crowd-pleaser. Honey is tasty on toast, delicious as a dip, and soothes a sore throat in a spot of tea. Tea in a jar makes a cute favor because it can be customized to include your initials, names, wedding date, and wedding colors.
Michelle Donoho — known by most as “Miss Shelley” — sells her delicious homemade jellies, jams and honey in her successful Etsy shop since 2012. But her love for cooking began at the young age of nine; she learned the Southern tradition of canning from her mother and decided to carry on the tradition herself. Years later, she began playing around with her own recipes until she became addicted to canning. Now, after perfecting her amazing creations, she happily sends her sweet treats from her southern kitchen to clients celebrating life’s most exciting adventures: weddings, bridal showers, and baby showers. She makes “only small batches with fresh fruits, real sugar, no preservatives, and love as sweet as tea”. We love that! She is based in beautiful Georgia and works with her husband, Michael, who handles shipping of the jars. About her business, she says, “Miss Shelley’s Southern Jams & Jellies is a labor of love and honor for all the wonderful women in my life!”
These mini honey jars are beautiful examples of Miss Shelley’s work. I love the tagline: “Love as sweet as honey” along with the custom label, burlap topper, and mini honey dipper (for an upgrade) which adds an extra-special touch. You can choose the type of honey, burlap topper color, raffia ribbon color, and personalized label. The label colors available are kraft brown, ivory, or white — so they’ll really fit into any wedding theme of your choice.
I love this hot pink combination for a summer wedding:
