Share Some Seeds:
Since it’s officially growing season, seeds are the perfect choice for a budget-friendly wedding favor. Individualized packs will set you back just a dollar or two, but buying in larger quantities will get you an even better deal. Our recommendation: Buy seeds for your favorite flower in bulk, package them in organza bags tied with colored ribbon, and add a sentimental message such as, “Spread the Love,” along with your wedding date.

Focus on Flowers:
If seeds are a bit too rustic for your taste, flowers might be just the right fit. Find an vessel that fits with your theme – pots, repurposed watering cans, even simple paper wrapping – and grow your own flowers from seeds. Match them with the floral arrangements that will be at your wedding. This is one favor that will leave your guests thinking of you and your event over and over again.

Think Infused Booze:
This idea may require a bit more legwork, but is well worth the extra effort. To do this, start with plain vodka. (Since you’re going to be adding flavorings, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a top shelf variety.) Then, choose an in-season flavor-packed ingredients like strawberries or herbs. To assemble, fill an airtight container one-fourth of the way full with your flavoring of choice. Then, pour vodka all the way to the top and seal completely. Best of all, the longer this sits, the stronger the flavoring will be. So feel free to do it way in advance of your special day.

Give Mints a Go:
Not everyone is DIY-oriented and that is absolutely fine. If the idea of putting together your own wedding favors makes you cringe, feel free to outsource the task. Think about buying prepackaged mints. Here’s the deal: Mints are a great option because not only do they offer spring freshness, but they are also extremely customizable. They can be made in a variety of colors, inscribed with a personal message, and they are sold by a plethora of venders. Make sure to price shop to find a company that meets your needs.
Remember, that picking a wedding favor shouldn’t be stressful. Just choose something simple and personal that highlights your love. Feel free to use these affordable spring wedding favors to get you thinking. Whatever you decide, your friends and family will be happy to be included in your celebrations.
