There are so many little things you can do to express your appreciation and love, and when it comes to wedding favors, there are quite a few possibilities. Succulents in jars and seeds to grow flowers are indeed lovely ideas, but useful wedding favors that people can eat or use right away are more worthy of praise. Think of some of these ideas as mini care packages for your guests that will help ensure comfortable, relaxing, safe travels back home after celebrating your big day.
