This blog post was inspired by a recent Ask Emmaline question that popped into our inbox from Leslie. She wants to know how to make her wedding more eco-friendly and thinks stationery is a great place to start. She writes,
“Dear Emmaline, Do you know anything about wedding invitations you can plant? I haven’t been able to find a style I like but I want to choose plantable invitations vs. regular cardstock as a more eco-friendly option. Do you know where to buy plantable wedding invitations? Thanks!”
Great question, Leslie, and what a fab idea. We’ve heard of it before, yet we’ve never quite seen plantable seed paper done the way it’s crafted thanks to the team at MyecoDesigns on Etsy. After receiving your question and doing some digging, we finally found the best wedding invitations that you can plant — in lovely designs — and we adore the store of the couple behind the brand that makes these seed paper invites.
Leire and Carlos set out to make quality organic products and, on their travels, discovered more sustainable ways to live. One of the ideas they cultivated and tried, tested, and officially launched is a set of plantable wedding invitations. They look just as beautiful as traditional cardstock invitations, yet they are embedded with seeds. It was met with wild popularity and thus, the invitations are now available to you and ship anywhere in the world.
What are wedding invitations that you can plant?
If you’re wondering how plantable invitations really work, it’s easy: one major benefit is you don’t have to toss the invitations in the garbage afterward. Guests receive their invitations in the mail as usual, then return their RSVP card to you (or do it digitally with QR code rsvp cards). Then, they simply read the instructions on how to plant their invitations. It’s simple: you plant the seed paper in soil, top with soil, add water, and wait for the flowers to bloom.
How amazing is that?! There is no tossing them in the trash, no adding to a landfill. Just flowers. :)
Now that you know where to find them, let’s explore a few of the designs in their collection. As you can see, they offer plantable wedding invitations that suit any style you have in mind.
