While there are tons of lovely, practical wedding favors you can give your guests, have you also considered using your floral arrangements as another way to thank them?
Wedding favors should always be tied into the theme or decorating scheme of your wedding. It really helps to make everything at your wedding reception look completely put together. Some themes will make it easy to choose matching wedding favors, such as a beach wedding. But in many cases, you may have no idea of what kind of wedding favors would coordinate with your wedding reception.
If you don’t have a theme or a destination to base your wedding favors off of, then your next best bet is to tie the wedding favors into your decorating scheme. This can be as simple as matching the colors and design elements or creating unique personalized favors that your guests can take home. You can also turn items that will be used during your reception into wedding favors and let guests bring them home. Wine glasses, floral arrangements, and other decorations are all an important part of planning your reception, but they can also make excellent wedding favors.
One popular, practical wedding favor idea is to use your table floral arrangements to create beautiful decorations and beautiful favors for your guests as well. In addition to giving large, over-the-top floral arrangements, you can also have many smaller floral arrangements and decorations placed in cute flower pots or favor boxes. Plan it out so you have enough that each guest can take one home as a wedding favor. Sprinkling some rose petals that match your table floral arrangements with baby breath in a favor box, along with some seeds for planting, can be a great way to thank everyone for coming.
The key for using floral arrangements as wedding favors is to find flower boxes or vases that are small enough that you can have plenty for all of your guests without making the tables of your reception look too crowded. Thankfully, there are many decorative flower boxes that are small enough for favors, yet elegant and beautiful enough to make a great display on your table. By far, the easiest way to share parts of your floral arrangements at your wedding is to use adorable little flower boxes. Cute little boxes with beautiful rose, tulip, or daisy designs make wonderful wedding favors, and you can enclose some fresh flowers for your guests to take home.
