I say just do the donation. Why spend more money on stuff people don’t need? People don’t need shot glasses or key chains, either…it seems like the need to give a favor has overwhelmed the common sense of not having more “crap” in the wedding world! Just do what is near and dear to your heart – the donation. People will appreciate it! Also, every time i’ve gotten seed packets at a wedding, they have never bloomed. They are likely not that high quality/have been sitting around forever in a warehouse and are past their prime!

@sprusa6:  I disagree with PPs.  I think it’s a great idea and will make the gift more tangible and thought provoking.  Maybe they even make puzzle-piece shaped seed packets, haha!!

I’d give them the packets too so that everyone knew it was happening, but that’s just me. Also I think it’s great

I’m afarid they will be wasted. Yes the IDEA is sweet, but i can gaurentee 50% or more will either leave it on the table or throw them away at home.

We’re donating to the cancer society as our favor. We plan to write something up to put in frames on the tables or on the back of the escort cards.

I love the idea.  I agree with a PP who said it makes the donation tangible and encourages people to think about it.

I think its a great idea! I probably wouldn’t plant them but, in this case, it really is the thought that counts.

It sonds like ghe seeds are almost as cheap as just printing this message on nice cardstock!

i probably wouldnt use this favor (since deer eat all my flowers anyway) but it could be cute.

You could print the message on little cards that are made out of seed paper, so the actual note is planted.  My cousin did that for their favors and it grew the most beautiful wild flowers!

I would do it because it’s 1: It’s so cheep and 2: the idea is very beautiful. 🙂

I think it’s lovely and meaningful, and you never know, it might just make someone a little more aware of your causes.
