A wedding reception favor that will grow on you!

Creating personalized seed packets is a popular trend for inexpensive wedding favors! Pardon the pun, but these eco-friendly wedding favors are really "growing" in popularity. Earth friendly is exactly what seed packets are. Your wedding guests will be receiving something that they could actually use (as opposed to tossing in the trash) and have something that grows into a plant or flower that will make the world a more beautiful place.

There are several ways you can get these seed packets for your wedding day. One is to purchase pre-made favors or make them yourself. I have two married daughters and have paid for two weddings, so I hope you will find these ideas for favors economical and useful. I should have used these seed packet ideas myself. I am so happy to share this creative idea with the readers who visit this page.

No matter how you choose to give your seeds away on your wedding day, you will be making the world a more beautiful place.
