real wedding are going green, give tree seedling wedding favors for lasting memories.

Wedding Favors: Tree Seedlings
Weddings take away a lot of resources from the earth for a celebration that only lasts a few hours. It pained us to think about this, and when choosing what to give our guests as favors, we decided that we wanted to use this as an opportunity to give back to the earth for all that it has given us. I’ve been to several weddings where I received a favor that was cute, but not really useful, and not anything that was really meaningful. We want to avoid this, and so we have decided that for our favors we are going to give… tree seedlings!
We found a company right here in New York state called Tree Beginnings that offers a variety of different gifts for all types of occasions, all of which can be planted. Almost all of the items from this store come with free personalization in the form of little cards, slips that attach to the gifts, colors, and even packaging. We chose blue spruce seedlings wrapped in natural burlap with a green raffia bow. We figured that these fit the theme of our wedding best (the Adirondack woods) and had the lowest impact on the environment.

I was able to order one seedling as a sample just to make sure we liked them before ordering all 50 that we will need. I think this is a good idea for anyone who has to purchase mass quantities of something and isn’t able to look at it first.

We realize that not everyone is able or will want to plant a tree after going home from our wedding, and we have a plan for that. We are going to put a little sign (in one of the picture frames we bought from Rustic Blend - see blog post here) on the table with the seedlings letting our guests know that if they do not want to take a tree and will not plant it, that it’s ok to leave it on the table. We are also going to encourage any of our guests with larger property or a greater desire to take care of a tree to take more than one if there are some left over. Then, if all else fails, we will take the rest of the seedlings home and plant them ourselves in our own yard.

We are also going to use one of these seedlings during our vow renewal ceremony in which we have incorporated a tree planting ritual. I think this will be a really nice way to tie it all together and promote the idea that we are all on the same planet and our love is universal.

Customize wedding guest favors
Custom to your style

We are unique because all of our eco favors are personalized, they all have thank you message, we can add the bride and groom’s custom messages and are flexible when it comes to innovation.

Nisha wanted to incorporate their personal wedding graphic from  their invitations into the favors. No problem, we placed the motif on the cards and they looked fantastic with the tree seedlings in burlap favors.

Since all of our favors are custom printed we can incororate special poems or sayings into our guest gifts, or continue a theme a couple wants to use throughout their wedding day.
A wedding day is often a time to remember a loved on or share a special poem or song. Our  tree and flower guest favors offer oportunites for your love to “grow” and share your  individual style with your friends and family.

We are awesome because we really believe in what we do, we offer quality eco gifts at affordable prices, we are helpful to our customers, and open to special requests.  Earth-friendly wedding favors are popular for 2011, what an simple way to include a touch of “green” on your Wedding day.

A customer comment I just have to share:

“Thank you so much for your quick service and the beautiful favors. They were just what we thought they’d be, and out guests received them very well. My new wife cried when she saw and read them — which is always a good sign! Thanks again for the quick and professional service and a quality product that became a really nice part of our reception.
Sincerely,
Chris”.

The possibilities are endless!
