DIY wedding favours

We all know that weddings can be expensive.  I recently got married (on Saturday!) and I found many ways to cut costs without sacrificing the look I wanted for the day.  We created our own wedding favours and I couldn't be happier with the results.  It added a touch of personality and also aligned with our rustic vibe.  

One afternoon we took a trip to Burlington to meet an older gentleman who supplies big box retailers with different plants.  How I found him, I don't quite remember - but I somehow got lucky and managed to score an amazing deal.

We purchased 3 lots of plants, which was more than enough for our wedding guests.  He also sold us the white plastic pots which were the perfect size.  All we had to do was purchase some extra mix, pebbles/gravel and replant them closer to our wedding date. 

A small piece of burlap, held together with a ribbon and tag was all it needed.  Simple and beautiful.  What do you think? - Amy
