Send your friends and family home with a memento fitting to the most verdant of seasons. Here, easy how-to ideas to get you inspired.
Bee’s Knees Candle Favors
Spring signifies flowers, and flowers mean bees. For witty and warm wedding favors, tie taper candles with our nature-inspired clip art labels.
Seed Matchbook Favors
Sure, matchbooks have become a go-to wedding favor, but there’s more to these clever versions than meets the eye. Give away a surprising something to remember in the form of a cheery, charming pack of forget-me-not seeds. The best part: Long after the big day, guests will watch the dainty blossoms—and the memories—spring to life.
Flower-Topped Mini Cake Boxes
Hide frosted desserts inside elegant boxes topped with a colorful bloom for a chic takeaway treat.
Rose Plant Favors
There’s nothing more romantic than the rose—it’s a symbol of love and affection that has stood the test of time. Miniature rosebushes make for especially adorable springtime sendaways that, once planted, will produce blooms for years to come.
Spring Green Candy Favor Boxes
Fill fresh green favor boxes with sweets and then tie them and tag them using one of our free templates: horseshoe, butterfly, four leaf clover, or dragonfly.
Ready to be plucked from the branches of a quince “tree,” dragees grouped in glassine bags are a delectable snack. Keep branches in water; arrange additional favors alongside.
In Full Bloom Candy Favor Bags
Turn simple favor bags into spring-worthy wedding presents with our custom-designed flower stickers.
These rosette-shaped ‘Echeveria’ resemble a favorite cut flower, but the similarity ends there. The hardiness of the succulent plant is unequaled and will leave guests with a lasting and easy-to-care-for reminder of your wedding—all they need is good drainage and sun.
Simple sacks make perfect favor packages when given a handle and personalized with a garden-inspired stamp.
To brighten up basic favor boxes, we used four different flower punches and transformed white card stock into cherry blossoms.
Painted metal buckets brimming with blooms call to mind a French flower market. But these bunches, wrapped in colored waxed tissue paper, are not for sale—they’re meant to be given as wedding favors. Display them near a doorway or throughout a reception hall on tiered metal stands painted to match the buckets. At day’s end, post a card inviting guests to pick a bunch.

Guests will recall your wedding during quiet moments spent reading if you provide them with these bookmark favors.
