Spring is such a lovely season that it’s practically wedding themed: new beginnings, flowers in bloom, warmer weather, sunshine—vibrant and beautiful. Chances are, if you’re having a spring wedding, you’ll be deep in the planning during fall and winter before. Which can make it hard to think of spring wedding favors!
Wedding Favor Considerations
If you’re having a destination wedding or anticipate many out-of-town guests, make sure your favors are easy to travel with! That means no liquids more than 4 oz, nothing delicate or breakable.
The best wedding favors are ones that reflect something about the couple. Sometimes that means having a theme connected to the venue, for example, if you’re getting married at a vineyard your favors could be mini wine bottles from the winery.
Whether you’re having a destination wedding or staying local, here are a few wedding favor ideas for your spring wedding!
Floral Wedding Favors
Weddings and flowers are synonymous. Plus, nothing says Spring quite like flowers. That’s why sending your guests with a growable wedding favor is a great idea!
Share little packets of flower seeds or plantable ornaments in the shape of a heart. Guests can plant them at any time and think of you as their flowers bloom.
Perfect for an early spring wedding, your guests can take bulbs home with them to plant in their gardens.
These are great because they’re tiny and easy to care for! Though they are delicate, they travel well.

Coffee beans or loose tea blends
