I kind of like the idea of perennials, too. Have you thought about making them your centerpiece, Martha Stewart style? That would cut down on the cost! 

Otherwise, I think annual seeds would be fine! People will still really enjoy them. 🙂

It depends on what Gardening Zone you are in. If people try to plant annuals that cannot both flower and set seed before frost, they will not self sow for the next year. In that case they would have to save the seeds to plant in the spring next year.

 

Perennials that are hardy for your zone could be planted immediately to bloom the following year.

Definitely perrenials for the symbolism. What a cute idea!

If money for favors isn’t a huge issue, I would go with perrenials! The symbolism is great!

However, I think annuals are fiiiiiiiine and still adorable if you’re worried about cost. One of my friends used seeds are her favor. She did annuals and it was huge hit! She packaged them in little envelopes with some “Watch our love grow” pun on the outside. They turned out great!

@MiraJo:  I love daisies because they’re usually pretty hardy and easy to grow.  Are you going to try and incorporate the flowers from your wedding?

@MiraJo:  that sounds really cute!  Plus your guests will always be reminded of your wedding flowers when the see them in the garden.  I think it’s a great gift.

I’m thinking about doing seed paper favors and use either herbs or wildflowers. Personally I love the idea, but  love gardening so I may be a bit biased.
