Unique favors for your spring wedding
With such a drawn out winter it might be hard to believe, but spring is almost here! So if your wedding is taking place during the spring season, it’s time to get your favors. Want to take a creative approach or maybe add some personal flair to your gifts? Check out these unique favors for some great inspiration:
Springtime celebrates renewal of life and that is apparent in the wealth of fresh flowers that bloom. Help your wedding guests create their own garden by gifting them flower seeds. Create your own prairie-style mix by combining a few color variations in each pouch you hand out to guests. Put another special touch on the favor bags by tying them with personalized ribbon.

Mints are a great wedding favor treat because they allow your guests to freshen up during the reception and also because they are adorable. Find some in light greens and blues to showcase the colors of the season. Take some inspiration from these conversation heart inspired mints featured on Green Wedding Shoes.
Flowers can completely transform your wedding venue into a floral paradise, but what happens to the blooms after the ceremony? Let your floral arrangements serve double duty by brightening the coming days of your guests! Just create mini bouquets instead of one large arrangement. Now everyone can take one home and place it on a shelf or mantel to enjoy its scent and colorful view. Mini bouquets can be just as beautiful as full blown bouquets, just take a look at this mini spring bouquet, by the Paper Stitch Blog.
Another way to gift your guests flowers is to place small potted plants on the tables. Succulents are becoming a widely more popular choice since they are sturdy, but you can offer your friends and family members whatever type of bloom is your favorite. Two Pair Photography captures a lovely arrangement of succulent favors for guests.
To showcase spring you can set your favors on a small potted indoor tree. Then you can use personalized ribbon to tie the boxes on the branches of the plant.
If you would like to give your guests candy, find some in fun pastel colors. For example, head to a boutique pastry shop and pick up oversized marshmallows in spring hues. Or if you’re feeling very adventurous, you could try these hand-dipped marshmallows, by Style Me Petty.
Looking for a way to display your favors, you should consider using small wicker baskets, or wooden crates, like this Los Angeles bride chose to do. They add a rustic vibe to your reception, which is just perfect for you spring wedding. Photographed by Hello Studios.
Sketchbooks could be the perfect favor for your guests as they allow you to ignite the creative spirit in them. You can gift them a small notebook with a monogram pen or pencil carved out of fresh tree bark. Paper N’ Stitch has a great tutorial on making homemade sketchbook favors, which would add a very nice personal touch to your favors, if you’re up for it.
