March Wedding Series: Eco-Friendly and Fun Favors!

Hey Ya’ll,

If you check my blog regularly, then you already know that I am a big proponent of cutting back on waste when it comes to throwing a party and that goes for weddings, too!

With that said, one of the easiest ways to do this is by using your wedding favors to assist your guests in finding their seat at your reception. There are many creative ways your favors can pull double-duty as table-markers or seat assignment cards, but as you can see, my favorite way is by using involves succulents!

Technically, these could work as your seating/table markers, favors and your centerpieces, if you’re really looking to create less waste or you’re on a tight budget. Don’t forget to dress your plant up a bit by adding colorful and patterned paper, tissue, fabric, string or ribbons!

Another fun way to ensure that your favors don’t end up in the trash is to give people something they might actually want… say, Ray Bans?
… Or maybe a yummy honey, jam or preserve in a cute jar!


I also really like the idea of using old keys attached to ribbons:

If none of these ideas strike your fancy, I found an excellent post (photos above) on GIVER’SLOG that features 50+ handmade wedding favor ideas:

When in doubt, go with classic sparklers for a spring or summer wedding. If nothing else, they make for some gorgeous photos!

  1. Wow, there are some great ideas here – I love the keys. I’m thinking of sunflower seeds to match my bouquet, but I’m a bit stuck for place settings as of yet.
