    If I HAD to choose, I’d choose the blanket. But the idea of a shared favor is kind of odd. I mean, I get it because blankets can be expensive, and not everyone will need one, but it just seems weird to have to share your “favor”.

    Honestly, I would go with something edible, though.

    missamysmiles:  It’s hard for a family to share a blanket if it gets chilly at your wedding.

    I would suggest you consider another idea if you are set on having a favour. Unless you know that all your guests have garden space in which they want to grow wildflowers, many of those may turn out to be  a favor for yourselves.

    why are you having ppl share a blanket? budget reasons? how many ppl are sharing? I would have ATLEAST one per couple on the table. if thats not in your budget, i would pass on the blanket.

    missamysmiles:  If I had to choose, I’d choose the blankets (fleece blankets are super easy to DIY, if you can get the fleece on clearance.) 

    I would use that.  I wouldn’t use the wild flowers. 

    And if you have left over blankets, an animal shelter will probably take them.  Check around in your area.

    missamysmiles:  I think that fleece blankets aren’t a bad idea. You say one per family though, I would be more inclined to do one per couple and an extra if they’re bringing kids. If you have extra, donate them to a homeless shelter or animal shelter, there are a lot of causes that could use blankets. 

    I’m not a fan of the flower idea, just because I wouldn’t want that. I’m horrible with plants and live in an apartment, so I couldn’t plant them outside.

    That blanket is big enough for one person to wrap up in, not two mcuh less a family.  If you can’t do a blanket for each guest, then don’t do blankets at all. 

    Flowers?  I don’t do gardens, so I’d be leaving those behind.

    I love flowers – wouldn’t use the fleece. Heck, I’m not a fan of any favors, unless they’re edible, and preferably the guests have a choice of what they get (like a candy bar). Anything else seems like such a waste. And I can’t even donate the personalized stuff I’ve gotten.

    I like the blanket idea, it just sounds so warm and cozy. I like the idea of the seeds but I’d never use them, so they’d be a waste for some people. 

    If you had a lot of extra blankets, you could donate them to a shelter…

    The blankets would be a nice practical favor. The wildflower seeds are nice and compact, but realistically, I doubt many people would use them.
