Ordered pine tree seedlings for our favors. Very inexpensive but look super expensive! Little tree, a note about care, tissue, organza, and ribbon makes each gift complete! Not too hard to put together either!

In lieu of candy, small frames or something heart shaped, we decided to plant one tree per guest as a way to give back. The certificate wasn't really attractive, so we made up a separate note and placed in a frame with the escort cards.

The trees went perfectly with our theme and were great keepsakes for all our guests to take home and remember our wedding by.

We used Arbor Day's "trees in celebration" as our favors. Through their website we purchased 140 trees (one for each guest) to be planted in a national forest. Arbor Day sent us a certificate that said 140 trees were planted in our guests honor in celebration of our wedding day. I printed up favor scrolls telling guests in celebration of our wedding day a tree had been planted in their honor. I loved this idea (typical favors usually get thrown out or forgotten anyway) and I think most people felt the same way. I highly recommend Arbor Day Foundation!

We used Arborday.org for our wedding favors. They have a cute tree in a tube that is perfect for favors and TSA friendly. You can custom order a label from Arbor Day but we just attached our own labels and used them to advise people of their seats. We ordered 3 different trees for our guests to represent where they traveled from. CO, CA & AZ. We've had reports from our guests that some of the trees were dry. Mainly the AZ trees. The extra ones we planted are already dead. The CO trees are doing pretty well and hit and miss on the CA trees. But they were a big hit and people enjoyed them. I feared that we would have been stuck with several left overs but pretty much everyone took theirs. Pretty easy process though. Ordered online. They arrived the day before the event. Done. My husband didn't want a favor that could be consumed and we didn't want to spend a lot per person. So it was a great find.

The Arbor Day Foundation provided saplings for us to give as favors for our vow renewal. They were very helpful in getting the trees here in time for us to plant them and hand them out to people and also in providing literature for people to know what to do with the trees once they got them home.

We ordered Gift Trees as favors for our guests. Most of our guests were from either the midwest or CA. For the midwest guests we gave Blue Spruce trees, and for the CA guests we gave Ponderosa Pine trees. The Blue Spruces were very hardy and many people were able to plant them (and they are surviving!), however, the Ponderosa Pine trees were a little wilted, and most didn't make it :(
The Arbor Day Foundation was easy to work with, and the trees arrived three days before the wedding. We were able to customize the labels.
