We’re definitely doing plantable seed paper escort cards, because I lovelovelove the “Please Be Seeded!” pun! 😀
But, I need to figure out how I want to do it!
I like this style, with a simple tent card and a seeded shape in the corner:
Here’s a mini inspiration board of my wedding vision:
LOVE Blue Orchids!
Then I found these cut seed paper shapes:
If I get them made in THIS color:
Could they pass as blue orchids?? Or is the shape not orchid-like enough?
* Please note: these will not be my only favors… but I put this post in this section because the seed cards would be a sort of extra “favor” to take home.

I like the blue flower-shaped ones! Just be sure to print somewhere that they are seed cards! I wouldn’t have known if you didn’t tell me!

@MrsRichard: Haha yeah they only had that light purple as an example… but you can order the shape in any other color. 🙂
@BrandNewBride: True! I’ve seen some cute poems explaining it.. I’ll probably print it on the back of the tent card. 🙂

I love the blue, but to me that ‘flower’ looks like a blob… would they do any details like they did in the leaf?

I think seed cards is a wonderful idea and such a nice, unexpected, touch! If you can get them in the darker blue, they will definitely work well with the rest of the theme. However, as BrandNewBride wrote, you should probably make sure that people get what they are – such a pitty if they’re left behind at the end of the reception. Perhaps your bridesmaid or the best man could mention it during their speach – could tie in nicely with the story of your relationship (i.e. that just as these cards will grow into something beautiful if planted, so did the relationship between you and your FI).

@kjo: No, it’s just the shape. 🙁 Most “flower” cutout shapes are like simple daisies or more “typical” flower shapes…

@weddingbound: Thank you! 😀 It wasn’t the color I originally had in my head (I was thinking more vintage-y pastel teal), but all four of my bridesmaids fell in love with that dress in that color, so I HAD to make it work… and I’m thrilled with how it’s turning out. 😀
