Are you looking for where to get wedding favors with seeds inside? Or are you interested in tips on making your own wedding favor seed DIY? We’ll show you a little bit of both in this blog post!
But first, let’s answer this question that came in to our Ask Emmaline inbox from bride-to-be, Leah. She is planning to give wedding favors with seeds to her guests at her summer wedding and she wants to know a few things first. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline Bride, I’m planning a June wedding and need to order my favors. I’m looking for a wedding favor with seeds. What do you recommend? Do I just buy seeds and packets or do I get them pre-made? Does a wedding favor with seeds usually need any special care or anything? Thanks in advance!”
Great question, Leah! We’ve been seeing a lot of eco-friendly or nature-inspired wedding favors this year, especially when it comes to the popular wedding favor with seeds, whether in a packet, or a seed bomb / ball, plantable seed paper, or a small wedding plant like a succulent given out to guests as a take-home gift.
How amazing are these? You can give succulent plants inside biodegradable pulp containers as favors. By LeBoxBoutique.
Can you imagine giving colorful succulents?! I want 100 of these just for myself! (By QueenofSucculents.)
There are even actual pine seedlings for giving tree wedding favors to guests! It’s all about giving back to the soil these days and a very easy place to start is with seed packet favors.
When the idea of a wedding favor with seeds first became popular, people were buying the wedding seed envelopes and DIYing them up themselves.
They were adding stamps like these to personalize the front, adding their own bulk wildflower seeds, and sealing them up to give out to guests. That is one option and is easy enough to do, especially if you have a little DIY magic up your sleeve. But they’ve evolved into so much more than just wedding favors with seeds… and you’ll love what we have to share with you today on the topic.
We’ll talk about how to make DIY wedding seed favors, where to buy a wedding favor with seeds included, heart shaped seed paper, seed bomb favors, bird seed favors, and so much more. If it has to do with wedding seed favors, we’re on it! :) Let’s get started!

First, you want to use the right seeds. Many people wonder what seeds to put in wedding favors and where can you buy them? It’s easy really, and we did all the research for you!
What Seeds to Put in Wedding Favors?
Due to their durability, the best seeds for wedding favors are wildflower seeds. You can source them from many places if making them yourself (try these bulk wildflower seeds: they’re highly-rated and NON-GMO, plus you’ll save money by buying them in bulk).
If you wish to make them yourself, you can place the seeds inside these packet favors, which are self-adhesive and read, “Let Love Bloom” on the front. They’re highly affordable at $12.99 for a set of 100. They won’t be personalized with your names and wedding date, or include a thematic design, but they’re a great option for couples who wish to make their own wedding seed favor packets. And they’re cute!
You can add your own flair to it with tags that can be personalized from here.
