Shakespeare wrote: “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.” This may be true of the bride and groom, but it is not true of the guests at a wedding. Your wedding colors are often the first thing your guests notice – after you, of course – and they will continue to see your colors throughout the evening. From the first invitation to the clothing, food, decorations, and guest book, your wedding color combination sets the tone for your wedding and gives it a distinct mood.
Pastel Green, Purple, and Gold
This color scheme works especially well for a daytime wedding held outdoors on a spreading green lawn. The soft pastel green featured in this wedding color scheme will complement the color of the grass, and the pastel purple and soft gold colors add interest and imbue the wedding with a gentle springtime feel. The bride wears white while her bridesmaids wear pastel green dresses. The groom wears a dark tuxedo with a pastel green tie and gold pocket square, as do his groomsmen. Tablecloths are alternating colors of green, gold and purple. Serve wine or punch the color of rich gold, and serve yellow cake with purple and gold frosting. The key to this combination is to use pastel colors rather than bright colors, which may look dated. Done correctly, this wedding color combination makes for a bright and happy mood.
Navy, Dark Green, and White
A navy and dark green wedding color combination conveys class, depth, and brisk confidence. The bride’s white dress looks especially lovely against the navy worn by her bridesmaids. The groom and his groomsmen wear a dark navy suit, elegant green neckties, and pocket squares. Tables are draped with navy tablecloths and contain vases filled with brilliant white roses. The cake and its icing are a brilliant white and are trimmed with navy and dark green frosting. As with the preceding wedding color combination, this wedding pallet looks fantastic at a wedding held on a green lawn. It also makes for a memorable seaside wedding.
White, Off-White, and Yellow
Your guests won’t soon forget this subtly beautiful color combination. White, off white, and yellow make for a dazzling beautiful wedding that will leave guests rubbing their eyes. Make no mistake: this color combination heavily emphasizes pure white and only relies on other colors sparingly. Tablecloths are pure white and contain vases filled with roses of the very same shade. The cake is white and is covered in white icing accented with off-white and yellow trim. The groom and his groomsmen wear white tuxedos with yellow neckties and may wear white top hats if desired. Surrounded by her white clad attendants, the bride looks angelic and seems to radiate purity. Those with a flair for the dramatic might consider renting a white carriage drawn by white horses.

Give thyme wedding favors for a “growing memory” of your wedding day. Brides and Grooms love the smell of thyme and it is a popular centerpiece for wedding reception tables. These herb seed kits are adorable and look beautiful on wedding reception tables all year round.
Like most herbs, thyme can successfully and relatively easy be grown indoors, it needs only a bright windowsill and some basic attention to thrive.
Thymus vulgaris: Hardy evergreen perennial; cosmetic, culinary, medicinal, ornamental
Thyme is appreciated as a versatile culinary seasoning, easy to grow from seed; thyme thrives and is most flavorful when given lots of sun. Thyme has long been a symbol of bravery, and valued for its antiseptic qualities. Its leaves are rich in oils and create a powerful antiseptic, beneficial in healing lotions and salves.Thyme pretty much grows itself. In fact, the more you fuss with it, the less hardy it will be. Thyme is most fragrant and flavorful when grown in dry, lean soil. Too much moisture will rot the plants.
Perfect Fall Wedding Favors, thyme is a seasonal favorite, brilliant choice.
Just in thyme! October 5, 2012

Think new life. Think blooming flowers. Think Spring as new life emerges from winter’s hibernation. Tulips are always a sure sign that spring has arrived.
But to have the joy of blooming flowers in the spring, the flower bulbs need to be planted in the fall.
Autumn is the time for planting the bulbs that will burst into bloom come spring. Its delayed gratification but the cheery appearance of tulips and daffodils an end of a bleak winter is worth the wait.
The best part. Planting flower bulbs doesn’t take much effort. You dig a hole, and drop in the bulbs and cover with soil. Give you guests flower bulbs for a unique wedding favor that will bloom year after year reminding them of your special day.

Plant a tree in the fall for the best results.
Did you know 2 mature trees provide enough oxygen for a family of 4?
Half of the world’s forests have disappeared.
Tree planting is the most cost effective way to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere and cool down the earth’s temperature.
Planting 30 trees will remove a person’s carbon debt for that year.
What can you do?
Small changes in your life routine can add up to big differences in helping to help the earth. It is difficult to believe that one person and planting one little tree can make a difference. But it can, and planting trees is an easy, fun way to contribute to greening your town.
The presentation of a tree at a special event is a tremendous gift. A wonderful opportunity to inspire, promote and plant trees for a Greener Tomorrow. By giving Trees as Favors at their Weddings, brides and grooms will set an example and possibly inspire their guests. Meaningful gifts create “growing memories” that last a lifetime.

In 2011 outdoor weddings are extremely popular. Let nature be your decorator at a venue where you can enjoy the great outdoors.
“The earth is a garden and each of us only need care for our own part for life to be breathed back into the planet, into the soil, into ourselves.”
Cherry blossoms remind us of the beauty of nature, give flower seed for blooms that flourishin your garden year after year.
These unique wedding favors are a brilliant pink in color. They remind us of the beautiful cherry blossoms that flouish on our cherry tree every year.
real wedding are going green, give tree seedling wedding favors for lasting memories.
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.

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.
The possibilities are endless!
