When we received this question from bride-to-be, Amy, we couldn’t wait to share what we found with you! Here’s her question, submitted to us on the Ask Emmaline inbox:
Hi Emmaline! I am looking for wedding favors that can also add to our decorations. I was thinking of giving flowers since we’re having a bohemian rustic wedding and we’ll be using wildflowers throughout. Do you have any advice on how to give flowers as favors? What container to use, how big they should be, etc.? Thanks!
We love the idea of giving flowers as favors, Amy! It’s a thoughtful gift guests can actually use, which is our favorite kind of favor! When giving flower favors, be sure to provide a small glass or bottle. A tag is also appropriate, so guests know they’re favors and should be taken home. They should also be kept fresh before placing on tables — and when it comes to the flowers you pick, anything goes! On our quest for the perfect flower favors, these flower vase favors from JoBlake came to mind. We love ’em because they are essentially THREE wedding details in one: they’re 1) favors, 2) place cards, and 3) decorations. Talk about a time (and money) -saver! Individually, they’re lovely decor pieces; in a group, they’re visually stunning! Plus, they can be used for your wedding reception or bridal shower. Take a look:
Flower Vase Favors
We love these because they’re handmade + chock full of love. Joanna, the designer, even made these for her own wedding. TIP: She said her mother-in-law stored her flowers in the fridge and put them out in the vases the day of the wedding to keep them fresh.
Lovely! You can find out more about these favors and take a closer look in the shop.
