The Ultimate Green Wedding Idea

A few weeks ago, we gave you the lowdown on eco-chic wedding invitations and were particularly intrigued by a series of "plantable" invites from Winnipeg-based online supplier Botanical PaperWorks. As it turns out, this environmentally-friendly company carries an entire line of plantable wedding stationary embedded with flower seeds - from invitations, to favours, to DIY paper, to confetti!

Currently, the 50-card Bucket of Love sells for $78.00, and the 100-card is $138.00.

The "Love Tag Seeded Favor and Placecard" provides a dual purpose for your Big Day - guests can take home the plantable "Love" favour while the tag can be used as a placecard, personalized with a message to guests, as well as their names and table number. Currently, the 4 x 5 inch favour/card combos are $2.50 each, with envelopes available for $0.47 each.

Plantable DIY Invites

If you've been paying attention so far, you've probably noticed that one thing all of these items have in common is their 'magic' paper! If you're seeking a do-it-yourself solution, Botanical PaperWorks also offers their seeded stationary straight up, in a variety of different colours, sizes, and prices. Be sure to also check out the instructions on how to print, plant and mail their plantable paper.

Guests who feel a bit weird about burying a picture of the bride and groom in the ground will be happy to know that the photo portion detaches from this plantable invitation - so they can still see the happy couple while they watch their love grow! Currently, the 5 x 7 inch "Flourish" seeded wedding invitation ranges from $5.00 each for orders of 200 or more to $6.00 each for smaller orders of 1-49.
