Sustainable and unique

When it comes to wedding favours, there are a lot of different options to choose from. But when you want something that is both sustainable and unique, it can be tough to know where to start.

Not to worry – we’ve put together a list of some of the best sustainable wedding favour ideas out there, including edible options, biodegradable favours and even some unconventional choices.

Edible favours

The simplest way to make your wedding favours more sustainable is to make them edible. When you're ordering your cake, why not enquire about adding some additional cupcakes, biscuits, brownies, or macarons to your commission.

Everyone loves an edible favour because it means they have something to enjoy during the wedding or on the way home. It also means they don't have yet another piece of clutter in their homes!

Why not turn to Daisy Mud Pie for your wedding cake and edible favours?

Wildflower seeds

If you're looking for something a little more unique, how about giving your guests wildflower seeds? These can be planted in their gardens at home and will serve as a beautiful reminder of your special day. You could even get creative and package them up in mini pots or seed packets with your wedding branding.

Ask your florist if they can help in sourcing wildflower seed packets for your wedding day. We recommend Flora & Daisy for all your floral needs!

Biodegradable confetti

You might not have thought about it, but confetti is actually a great sustainable option for wedding favours. There are now many brands that sell biodegradable confetti made from paper or even flower petals.

This means that your guests can enjoy throwing confetti without harming the environment. Plus, it's a great way to add a bit of excitement to your wedding day.

Mini succulents

Similar to wildflower seeds, a mini succulent is an excellent sustainable option that won't lead to any waste. They are easy to take care of and can be placed in a pot or even used as a desktop decoration. Plus, they make for a beautiful and unique wedding favour that your guests are sure to love.

If you're interested in mini succulents as wedding favours, why not speak to Designer Flowers Essex about sourcing these adorable wedding favours. You could also give guests fresh potted herbs as a unique wedding favour. Any uncollected wedding favours can simply be planted.

Eco-friendly soaps

If you're looking for a sustainable and luxurious wedding favour, how about eco-friendly soaps? These can be sourced from many different brands and can even be made locally. Your guests will love using these beautiful soaps long after your wedding day.

If you need help sourcing sustainable and eco-friendly wedding favours, ask your venue if they have preferred suppliers. Many hotels, golf clubs and estates will have their own suppliers who may be able to assist with wedding favours. Explore our range of wedding venues, including The Compasses At Pattiswick.
