That sounds darling! Yes I think burlap wrapped around the bottom would work, maybe tied in a ribbon of a color from your wedding? Will any of your guests need to travel by plane, though? Might be cumbersome or difficult to keep them safely wrapped for extensive travel, just a thought, but otherwise a great idea!

That’s great! Perhaps to get them to stand up, you could wrap them in the burlap and then nestle them among pebbles, glass marbles, or sand in a shallow bowl?

I actually looked into doing this for our favors, but we decided to go the edible route. I love the seedling idea 🙂 You might want to put someplastic or something under the burlap so you can keep them moist and they don’t dry out/leak.

We looked into doing saplings, but found it too expensive. Its really neat that your dad can do this for you and a great way to bring the family into the day!

My friend just did that at her wedding last month, but instead of burlap bags, she planted the saplings in a small terracotta pot that she spray painted black (she had a black and white color with a nature theme). It really looked lovely and I thought it was a great idea, but it was sad to see so many favors that weren’t taken home at the end of the night.
