Fabulous Favors

My one big rule with the wedding favors is that they need to be useful. I don't want to give our guests things that they will just throw away.

So clearly, the first path to check is the treats.

Cookies are a good option for a gift. Tasty and thoughtful, and you can dress up the bag with a paper doily and some ribbon.

Another great food idea is to have cotton candy. A bonus with this option is that you can make it in a variety of colors. (I featured my own wedding colors).

I love the idea of a green favor. Flower seeds are cost effective, and beautiful. AND we could stamp the phrase "Let Love Grow" on the bags.
A Lovely Thyme - DIY Plant Wedding Favors omg Amanda I am obsessed with this. Please do it. Or I will do it and bring them to your wedding to hand out myself.:

Better yet, we could give succulents which are adorable and don't require much care. The withdraw to this idea is that we would need to cover the cost of all the little pots, soil, and plants.

We love these DIY succulent favors & so much more in this gorgeous rustic wedding:

 For guests who are unlikely to plant seeds or maintain plants they can hang this favor with very little effort and enjoy the birds that come to visit.

Just a few ideas, and I hope one of them really starts to grow on me... ;) Hee hee. Wishing you a happily ever after!
