Let's look at how you can make your wedding favours eco-friendly.


How to make your wedding eco-friendly

When it comes to your wedding, there are so many ways to make your event more sustainable, from using recycled materials to choosing local vendors. And one of the best ways to go green is by giving eco-friendly favours to your guests.

There are tons of great eco-friendly favour options out there, from plantable seed packets to soy wax candles. No matter what your budget is, you can find an eco-friendly option that will fit into your wedding plans.


The best eco-friendly wedding favours

There are a number of popular eco-friendly wedding favours that you can choose from to give back on your special day, that will also make great gifts for your guests. 

Mini Soy Wax Candles

Mini soy wax candles make a great eco-friendly wedding favour because they are a gift that can be used by your guests, and will remind them of memories from your wedding day.

To make your wedding favours extra special, you can personalise the candles with your names, venue and wedding date, and choose the scent best for your wedding theme.


Personalised Seed Packets

Personalised seed packets are a unique and eco-friendly way to show your guests how much you care the environment as well as giving your guests something to remember the date by. The seed packets or seed ball boxes can be customised with your names and wedding date and even a thank you message.

Wildflower seeds can help the biodiversity to improve where your guests live and as the flowers grow they can remind them of you.
