steal this idea: plantable wedding favors

wedding favors

I’m fresh off a family wedding in Cape Cod and while there’s a lot I’d love to share (and probably will!) today I have to mention the favors. As their parting gift to guests, the bride and groom gave these adorable note cards complete with honey sticks and a heart-shaped swath of wildflower seed paper from Botanical PaperWorks. I‘m thrilled! We’re all familiar with the debate about the value of wedding favors – some appreciate them while others could go without another thing to throw away – and I thought these were a delightful middle ground. Simple and thoughtful, they have a longer shelf life than food, and give guests the gift of beautiful flowers that will undoubtedly remind us all of the happy occasion. What do you think readers? Care to share some of the best favors you’ve received? – Sarah C.

From our partners

At our wedding we had a photographer take a picture of each couple/family when they walked in and at the end of the night everyone took home a framed photograph of themselves at our wedding.

We’ve been married for almost four years and I still see them displayed at people’s houses.


My best friend is a clean energy consultant and gave CFLs – decorated with ribbon and paper to look like a flower – as a wedding favor. I think of her and her husband whenever I turn on my hall light. :)

We made custom CD’s of the music from our wedding, with a custom cover illustrated by a friend of ours. Even five years later, friends (and family) still tell me they love it. And it tickles me to know that my 9 year old niece now likes Tom Waits because of it.

I really loved these spice rubs my friend used as her favors a few years ago. SO CUTE!

My niece and her husband met while working in a garden nursery, so they gave small bags with tulip bulbs in them, and little flat stones that were painted like little ladybugs. We planted them in our home garden and every year they come up we think of them, and the ladybugs still sit there beside them!
