Have you considered doing away from the traditional edible favors and instead offering your guests plantable eco-friendly favors? While brides traditionally opt for truffles or satchels of candy at their wedding, why not give your guests an eco-friendly favor instead? In honor of Earth Day, we are exploring ideas that brides can use for unique favors.
1) Bucket of Flowers Favors: These come in options of 50 flowers or 100 flower seed buckets. The papers are plantable seeds so guests can go home and plant these in a pot of soil or in their gardens. Within weeks, they’ll have blooms of flowers.
2) Plantable Seed Cards: TheKnot.com also offers great plantable seed favors. These customized cards can showcase your wedding date, your names and a heartwarming note to your guests. Super cute for your guests to take home and plant wildflowers with.
3) Gift Trees in Tubes: These are the ultimate wedding eco-chic favors. These spruces come in tubes or bags for guests to take home and plant. They will grow to become real-life pine trees. You can purchase the trees based on your zone so they grow best in your guests’ homes. Cool, huh? They start at just $3.00 a tube, so you likely would only give one per family as opposed to one per guest. Each tree comes in its own eco-system ready to be planted in a pot of soil. You can even customize the labels to reflect any sentiments you want to share with your guests.
Would you do any of these eco-friendly gift ideas at your wedding? What trends are you seeing at weddings? Let us know, we’d love to hear ‘em!
