Looking for Eco-Friendly Wedding Favors and Ideas?
Nov 11, 2011
A very long time ago, I posted about having an eco-friendly wedding. Since I don’t want to be repetitive, I’m just going to ramble about our fabulous eco-friendly wedding favors. I love our eco-friendly favors, mostly because so much thought went into making them not only good for the environment, but making them pretty too.
If you read my posts regularly, you’ll notice that I have a pet peeve for non-useful favors. Why are you going to spend money on something your guests are going to toss away after your wedding? I’m all about the practical stuff, or at least something you can eat or use at least one time. Hence why I am obsessed with our seed wedding favors. My absolute favorite eco-friendly wedding favor are our birdseed hearts that you see in the picture, but right now they’re currently out of stock until further notice. But because they were so popular (and we had no complaints about them), I had to throw them in there. Interested? Keep checking back on our website every few weeks to see if they’re back in stock. But great seed alternatives include our plantable magic beans (they can be personalized at no additional cost!) Since the seeds are shipped loose to you, a great idea is to purchase some of our personalized muslin bags (also eco-friendly, of course) and fill them up with seeds. For a really personal touch, attach a favor tag instructing your guests to plant the seeds when they get home to grow their very own beautiful wildflowers.
Beeswax candles are another popular choice of green wedding favors. I personally don’t like candles too much, but our beeswax ones are definitely an exception. So are our personalized soy candles and our real coconut shells filled with soy candles – they smell SO good! If you’re not into candles, consider bamboo favors, such as our bamboo coasters. The great thing about bamboo coasters is that you’re virtually paying the same price as you would for a set of glass coasters, but you’re getting four coasters instead of the usual two (since they’re thinner, more fit in the packaging).
I could sit here all day and tell you why I love our eco-friendly favors so much, but I’ll just let you find out yourself. Questions? Comments? Share your thoughts please!
PS: Happy 11/11/11! I cannot tell you how many weddings are taking place today. I was actually hoping to devote a blog to the unique and popular wedding date, but was unable to gather enough information. All I really know is that Las Vegas will probably look like a bridal convention: an estimated 3,500 weddings were reserved at Vegas chapels today, which is more than triple the usual weddings that occur per day there.
Have a great weekend, and congratulations if you’re getting married today! <3 Kelsey
