Spring weddings are the perfect time to stop and smell the roses. If you’re tying the knot this season, consider these thoughtful floral and plant favors that guests can enjoy long after your big day.
Orchids can serve double duty as table centerpieces for intimate weddings or receptions and as giveaways for guests. For a more personal touch, have the orchids arranged in pretty containers such as vintage teacups.
Ornamental Garden Plants
While they resemble pretty roses, Echeveria plants are actually sturdy succulent plants that are very easy to care for. Arrange these ornamental garden plants in small pots at a table by the entrance for wedding guests to take home after the reception.
Seed Matchbook Favors
Seed matchbooks make the perfect eco-friendly wedding favors. Customize your own packs in cheerful or floral prints with instructions on how to plant them for your guests to try planting at home.
For a rustic garden wedding, place pretty potted herbs such as oregano, basil, tarragon and rosemary in minimalist containers. The herbs can serve as table accents or name place cards and be taken home by guests.
Small terrarium bowls filled with tiny succulents, cactus plants or other sturdy, fast-growing plants make unique and thoughtful wedding favors.
