But just to set things straight, there is more to the cactus than thorns. There are multiple species, some without thorns whatsoever, and with beautiful flowers of different coloration, depending on the species – red, pink, yellow, white or orange.

You can have various objects of décor that do not go out of fashion or you can use practical items such as coffee mugs, glasses or coasters.

The finishing touch can be a raffia ribbon colored in whatever shade you desire. It is important to inform the guests about the content of the boxes so you should include a small card on which you write the name of the flower seeds and even a small message referring to the symbolism of the favors – that of celebrating your new beginning as a family. If you want to have the complete ‘set’, so to speak, you can include a small pot in which the guests can plant the seeds.

Ideas of green wedding favors are sought by couples who are planning to organize a green wedding, but they can be useful for any couple who wants to offer eco-friendly wedding favors.

Green wedding favors will be appreciated by guests if they are useful ones. The first idea would be to offer potted plants, which are aimed to make the guests’ home décor more beautiful, but can serve as place card holders, decorations and wedding favors all in one. Buy terracotta pots which have inside the same type of flowers that were used to decorate the reception place and paint them or decorate them with each guest’s name.

If you cannot afford to spend so much money on wedding favors, as it should be admitted that potted plants tend to cost a lot, then purchase plant bulbs in bulk and place them in small homemade burlap bags, which can be decorated with colored flowers or buttons. Offer these wedding favors with thank you cards on which you shouldn’t omit to write a few guidelines to help them care for the plants. The guests will enjoy the gardening activity and will love to see the bulbs grow into beautiful plants. This isn’t a present that will be forgotten in a box, it will be a marvel at which they will look with pleasure.

For Asians, bamboo is the symbol of luck, marriage and love. Whether you are having an Asian-themed wedding or you are simply attracted by its meaning, offer lucky bamboo, planted by you especially for your guests or purchased already potted.

Many couples attend to the activity of finding the right wedding favors only after they have finished with the other preparations. Usually, they discover that they are running out of time and that they have a small amount of money to spend on wedding favors. The best option for them is to offer seed packets at the wedding reception. They can be fruit, flower or vegetable seeds and can be wrapped in personalized packets or in small boxes with labels that contain the date of the matrimony and the bride and groom’s names glued on them.
