Finding wedding favour ideas that represent you as a couple, and that your guests will actually like, is harder than it looks! If you love the thought of bringing a bit of nature into your nuptials, why not ditch the shortbread and opt for some great garden-inspired wedding favour ideas that are sure to brighten both your day and the faces of your loved ones.
Terrariums are the ideal wedding favour for couples who love nature. Not only do they liven up the venue, but you can also personalise each individual one to best suit each of your guests. Terrariums are available for purchase from a number of garden shops, but they are also super easy to make yourself. Using some form of succulent or air plant, small stones and a glass jar or bauble of your choice, these unique gifts are a DIY dream come true.
We love the idea of gifting seeds as a budget-friendly wedding favour. Couples can get creative and wrap the seeds together with a personal note, or just decorate the existing packaging. Why not give your guests seeds from the featured flowers of your wedding? This way they can remember your big day every time they water their beautiful new seedlings. Be sure to include planting instructions on the back though!
Small potted plants are a fantastic wedding favour that always go down well with the crowd. For an added element of fun, why not write your guests’ names at the bottom of each pot and arrange them together on a table. Your guests then have to try find which pot belongs to them before taking their seat at the reception. This is a great way to keep the family and friends occupied while you’re off taking your wedding photos!
Donate a Tree on Their Behalf
For nature lovers who want to give back, a lovely gift idea that we found is to donate a tree on your guest’s behalf. More satisfying than a bag of chocolates, donating to a good cause is a great way to use the money that you would have otherwise spent on favours. Organisations such as Cool Earth allow you to sponsor a rain forest tree in the name of your guest. Each person will receive a certificate of sponsorship for their tree which you can put on each table. With prices starting from £1 per tree, this is a budget-friendly gift idea that can really make a difference!
