Fun, funky and eco-friendly, these fabulous decorated matchboxes make great containers for candy wedding favors. They are hand-crafted and adorned with colorful flower decorations which would look great in any wedding color scheme, as featured in Brides Magazine.

Fill them with candy, sugared almonds, eco-friendly confetti or even flower seeds for all your guests to take home with them.

Ivy Lane Designs use recycled materials to create a range of fun goodies. These matchboxes cost $50 for 20 from Ivy Lane Designs on Etsy.

Fleur de Sel caramel, rich and creamy with a sophisticated salty tang makes a great wedding favor. When it is packaged in eco-friendly unbleached paper bags and tied with ribbon it is a perfect green gift for your guests.

The caramel is handmade, soft and chewy and looks irresistible. There are three in each package, individually wrapped in natural unbleached parchment paper. The vanilla and salt used is already organic, but 100% organic ingredients can be used on request, though it costs more. And while we’re on cost, just check the shipping fee before ordering, as it will add quite considerably to the total.

The caramels themselves cost $225 (plus shipping $75) for 100 bags with three caramels in each from The Caramel Jar on Etsy.

Affordable wedding favors that are attractive and eco-friendly can be hard to find. These cute paper flowers are embedded with seeds, so that your guests can plant them and grow a pot of flowers when they get home. The ultimate in biodegradable!

The favors are printed with your names and wedding date and make a lovely memento of your day. They come in six paper colors and 11 ribbon colors to fit in with your theme. At about $1.50 per favor they are inexpensive but tasteful and fit in well with a garden or green wedding theme.

Favors cost $78 for 50 or $138 for 100 from The Knot Wedding Shop.

Who doesn’t like chocolate?! These organic chocolates come in a delightful mini-tote for a delicious and decadent wedding favor that your guests won’t be able to resist.

There are five silver wrapped chocolates per bag. This version are dark chocolate with almond butter centers and are vegan, but there are several other options, including heart shaped lavender truffles and dark chocolate cherry hearts. The chocolate is all Fair Trade and organic and produced to high standards by a small artisan team.

Sjaak’s can also work with you to come up with a custom chocolate favor for your wedding.

Poetry!! …the world might be a better place if everyone read a little bit more poetry. Always good for the soul to slow down, take a minute and read a poem. I love the idea of the bride and groom picking out a poem to give their guests at their wedding.
The poem can be presented beautifully with these plantable ecofriendly paper favors. They are embedded with wildflower seeds and can be planted after the wedding. It has all the symbolism a bride could ever want, they can be imprinted with your choice of words (or use the ones they provide), they come with a matching ribbon available in a bazillion colors.
$2.95 each (minimum purchase of 24) at Favor Ideas
