With Earth Day just last week, we thought we would put together our favourite eco-friendly Wedding Favours!
In our floral studio we are always very cautious with composting our unused floral. Event Decorator is lucky to have a beautiful property that allows us to be more Eco-Friendly. We try to use less paper, and have everything electronic. Not only does it allow us to save paper, but it also gives our Bride’s more access to their files - so they can always stay in the loop as to what we are doing.
Plants - Plants are great Wedding favours for your guests. It is great for the environment, and your guests will be able to keep your Wedding favors for years. Whether you chose to give away a tree seedling, annual flower bulb or a herb, it is a super cute idea!
Bird Seed - For all your nature loving Brides!
Tea and/or Coffee – Everyone loves a great cup of coffee or tea! Head out to a local market, or grab some Fair Trade Coffee. Then in a recyclable bag or box, fill with a single serving of coffee or tea. Coffee beans and loose leaf teas will work best.
Edible Favors - This is a cute idea that your guests are able to take home. If you love to cook or bake, this is a great opportunity to add a personal touch to your Wedding.
Local Vendors - Etsy is a great place to find a business that makes favors! Look for businesses that use recyclable materials for storing and shipping your favours. These artists are local, which keep shipping costs down, and you get a hand-made item! Plus, you get the satisfaction of knowing you are helping out your local businesses.
What are you doing at your Wedding to be more Eco-Friendly?
