DIY Flower Wedding Favors: Flower Bulbs

If you’re getting married in the spring or summer, Gladiolus bulbs or other spring-planted flower bulbs are a great choice for favors.

If you’re getting married in the fall, Tulip bulbs or other fall-planted flower bulbs are a fantastic option as well.

Guests can plant the bulbs in containers or directly in their gardens and think of your special day as they grow and bloom. Here are some of our favorite favor ideas using bulbs:
