Going Green: Eco Friendly Wedding Favor Ideas
Wedding favors are a great way to add a bit of personality to your big day, and if you have an eco friendly theme, you're going to need some eco friendly favors. Here are some great ideas:
A bag of seeds
Giving each guest a small bag of seeds that they can plant in their garden is a really nice idea - not to mention good for the environment.
Mini jars or jam or chutney
Keep your guests sweet by sending them home with mini jars of jam, honey or chutney. You could jar some local produce and add personalised tags to keep it extra green. You can't go wrong with this one!
Wedding music playlist
This is a great way for your guests to remember your wedding, why not give them a link to a wedding playlist! If you want to give them something to take home you could put it on a CD and make it extra personal by including a custom sleeve on recycled paper.
Bags of birdseed
Do your part for nature by supplying your guests with some birdseed in pretty bags (this is especially good if you're getting married during the winter months when birds don't have as much food). Throwing birdseed at a weeding is the traditional way to send off the bride and groom and is also better for the environment than confetti.
Stone place cards
Paper place cards are easily lost as they can disappear with a big gust of wind. Stone place cards on the other hand, are place cards you can rely on -and eco friendly too!
Organic soap bars
Guests will love a little bar of organic soap in a box made of recycled cardboard. It's really cute and it's something they might actually use!
Make sure your guests' leave with the sweet smell of love in their handbags and on their wallets with a simple lavender sachet. As lavender flowers represents luck when given as a gift it makes a a meaningful eco friendly wedding favor!
Gifting each guest with a spoon with your names on it is a really quirky idea. It's something they'll have forever too, so your wedding day will be remembered with every yoghurt or bowl of soup they eat!
