Plant Favors

A nice takeaway from a wedding is a favor that — much like the bride and groom’s love for one another — can continue growing. Plants! Rooted in love and sure to sprout smiles and the warmest of thanks from wedding guests, here are a handful of plant-related wedding favor ideas.

Crowns and Halos

Prepare yourselves for an overload of beauty in the form of floral crowns.

Floral crowns and halos have been on my mind a lot lately, just waiting for some free time and a trip to the craft store for them to physically be on my head, too. I think they’re timeless beauties that look stellar on brides, for weddings with a nature-theme or even an elegant Greek theme (see photo #7 below).

Inspired Weddings

Inspired Weddings by Matthew RobbinsLast week while perusing Holly Becker’s blog decor8 (which has been recently redesigned and if you haven’t seen it, take a look!), I stumbled across wedding expert Matthew Robbins’ book Inspired Weddings.

With a beautifully styled cover, I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s one of those books that from the cover alone I have a gut feeling the interior will be laden with gorgeous photos of his innovative ideas galore for decorating and table setting a wedding.

Inspired Weddings by Matthew Robbins

The book is centered around basing “your wedding design on an object you and your spouse-to-be find meaningful”, and a from the previews I’ve seen that a lot of the book is infused with vivid colors and florals. Looking for extra wedding ideas? Pick up your copy over at Amazon.
