How to Make Up Your Own Wedding Wildflower Mix
Brides use our wildflower seed mixtures in all sorts of creative ways for weddings. Everyone loves wildflowers, and our seed mixes, which are quite inexpensive by the pound, help you create all kinds great things. Examples:
Wedding party gifts
Hotel or reception table goodie baskets
We don't make up the individual favors, sachets, or gifts, but simply deliver the seed to you in sacks like the one in the photo below. How you use and decorate the seed is up to you. Small white organza or satin drawstring bags, like we used for these samples, are available at craft and party stores, and also online at OrientalTrading.com. And they cost only $4.00/dozen or less. All you do is add ribbons and silk flowers.
Favorite Mixes for Weddings
Any of our regular wildflower mixtures or sacks of your favorite individual wildflower seeds are fine for wedding use. Favorites include our All-annual Mixture, and various favorite single wildflowers. You can choose any mixture or species and make up your own custom mix. Favorite economical wildflowers to use are Cornflower, Crimson Clover, and Baby's Breath.
Forget the Rice. Throw Wildflower Seeds!
Here's another great idea for a Wildflower Wedding. Most brides make up little net or satin sachets of seed before the reception, and then have them handed out as the bride and groom are preparing to leave. Instead of showering the happy couple with rice, guests love tossing wildflower seeds. To choose seed for throwing, we'd suggest the least expensive wildflower seeds, which are mentioned above. Choose your favorite or choose several and make up a mixture!

Beautiful Flower Bulbs from the Bride
It seems more and more brides are using flower bulbs for wedding favors. And why not? A lily bulb in spring or summer, a tulip or daffodil in fall; any bulb makes a lovely, living take-home gift from a wedding event. They cost very little, and can be dressed up in satin sacks and ribbons just like wildflower seeds.
