Garden Wedding Favors
Garden Wedding Favors: Beauty, Energy, And Possibility.
Garden wedding favors are an opportunity for today's brides to indulge their creativity. Because a garden wedding is usually a less formal occasion than an indoor wedding, there is plenty of room for innovative and non-traditional wedding favors. Popular wedding favors for a garden party can run the gamut from practical to frivolous and still stay within the guidelines of contemporary manners. Many brides make use of this flexibility to send guests home with a vibrant reminder of the bounty of the garden.
An increasingly widespread trend is to give wedding favors that actually contain the seeds of a small garden for each guest. Many brides choose to give bulbs, seeds, or small potted plants as favors for a garden wedding, so that guests can enjoy their own version of the bounty of nature. Whether they boast an array of seeds or bulbs, or just a stem or two of flowers held on to the package with brightly colored ribbon, garden wedding favors become all the more elegant for sharing the beauty of the setting in some way.
A garden wedding is a distinctively Spring party, and calls for wedding favors that hint in some way at the vibrant beauty of the Spring season, and the sense of possibility that comes from being surrounded by new life. A garden party in the midst of brightly blooming flowers makes for a wedding reception that's full of hope and goodwill, and wedding favors that match this playful, optimistic feeling will feel particularly appropriate. Favors that reflect the vibrant energy of a spring garden are a lovely addition to any wedding party, and guests appreciate being able to take some of the lively fun of the garden home with them.
Of course, more traditional wedding favors are easily adaptable to a garden setting. A beautiful garden wedding makes a lovely background for a wide array of wedding party gifts, from soaps to candle favors to silver plated items and beyond. To make these kinds of classic wedding favors feel more at home in the garden, brides may tie the packages with playful ribbons, or even package the favors with a few buds of baby's breath or other inexpensive blooms. No matter what the wedding favors may be, whether they’re garden themed or not, resourceful brides can always find ways to integrate the favors with the look and the feeling of the outdoor setting.
