I love the idea. I would go with something useful like herbs instead of flowers. I also love the recycled invite paper with seeds dried inside, so they can just plant the invite after the wedding. If you haven’t seen this paper this is a link to one of the many companies that make them.

This is one of the favors I’m considering and I think it’s a great idea :o)

I’ve gotten seeds before, without a pot.  I really like the idea.  The only thing that I hear (as well as experienced myself) is that the seeds don’t actually grow.  I might be synical, but I’d wonder if the seeds are quality.  It would be really easy for a company to sell bad seeds (or at least not care about otherwise fine seeds, being stored improperly etc.), knowing that they’d be dispersed to several guests.  Several wouldn’t even get planted.  Of those that are, who would bother to tell you if they didn’t sprout?    And after that length of time, how would you try to get your money back for something like that? 

But I do think it’s a cute idea.  And if you have some kind of garden or ecofriendly theme, it makes a lot of sense.

What a great idea!  If I went to your wedding, I’d definitely plant those seeds!  Originally I wanted to give out tree seedlings, but we decided not to because of (1) cost and (2) all of our guests who must travel by air.  But your idea sounds like it solves both issues– I’ve got some serious favor envy!

If you have guests coming from overseas, they won’t be able to take them home.
