With the arrival of spring, it’s all about growing and planting things that bloom. So, if you’ve yet to check wedding favors off of the to-do-list, why not consider miniature plants, herbs or seeds? Plantable favors are wonderfully eco for a number of reasons. Not only are they natural, but they are also reusable, functioning as décor, placecards and favors.
Your gift will hopefully inspire your guests to grow a few more things, and they’ll always have a reminder of your special day!
For a bit of wearable, modern eco-glamour, Chicago designer Christina Karin is one for your short list. Her contemporary, ready-to-wear women’s line is chic and colorful—undoubtedly warm-weather honeymoon worthy. The sustainably produced pieces are very versatile, so you’ll certainly continue to turn heads in them at summer soirees too.
Not only fashionable, the Christina Karin collections are also philanthropic. A portion of sales are donated to V-Day, an organization that works to prevent violence against women.
As promised, here’s more from Cameron + Walker’s wedding! After a beautiful outdoor ceremony, the couple celebrated with a bbq, potluck reception, including organic and locally grown food made by family and friends and square-dancing under the stars.

Does a bride get any cuter than this? Last week’s featured bride, Cameron, was beyond lovely in her pink gown (which she purchased second-hand), and by the looks of it, she had a ball in it!
We’ll share a few more design details from Cameron + Walker’s North Carolina wedding with you tomorrow, but if you missed their feature, take a peek here!
Grooms can get creative too!
For spring weddings, local plants, flowers and even recycled paper make for fashionably fun boutonnieres. Add a little twine for rustic, natural look, or upcycled fabric (maybe Dad or Grandpa’s hankie?) to the stems for an extra eco touch.
Don’t forget the groomsmen too!
