I love to work in my itty bitty garden so I love the idea. However, I’m not sure if I would be the majority.

@Treejewel19:  I agree. 

I feel like this is the sort of thing that lots of people who are up-to-date on wedding-things love because it’s the new, unique thing? But probably more than 95% of my guests don’t look at wedding blogs and would think it was a little weird and just throw it out.

I work as an environmental educator, and I LOOOVE me some wildflowers, don’t get me wrong… but those seed cards and mixes have a LOT of plants that may be fine, pretty wildflowers in one spot, and noxious, horrible weeds in another spot! Oxeye daisies, scentless camomile, several species of buttercups, Dame’s Rocket, a few ‘bluebell’s are all ones that are common in ‘wildflower’ mixes and are not good for where I live. Also, a seed card that’s fine for your local guests may become a crazy triphid takeover mix for your guests from across the country. If you have any international visitors, they won’t be able to take it across the border, either.

Its a great idea for a spring wedding, or I’ve seen people give baby trees to plant

As a city dweller who doesn’t have any gardening space, it would be lost on me.  I actually love gardening but I just wouldn’t be able to put the seeds to use.

It’s cute, but I’m lazy and am not big into gardening or even keeping house plants.  I’d probably throw them out (sorry).

I’ve gotten these and think they are cool, but in the end I never got to planting them and just tossed.

I killed a chia pet.  Edible favors might have more mass apeal, but if you guys met at a greenhouse or are having a garden themed wedding, I can see where it would be cute.

I’d probably leave it on the table.  I’d like to say it’s because I live in an apartment and don’t have any access to any sort of garden, but really, I just don’t care for the idea.  But, I’ve never been an outdoorsy type of person, so maybe it’ll appeal to different people.
