Normally you would only think about place cards when planning a seating chart. However you would never really consider them as favors. An interesting new option is plantable place cards. These seating cards are biodegradable and when a guest plants them in their garden, they will produce a variety of plants from the seeds hidden inside of them. These are great for a green and eco-friendly option for a bride who does not want to waste paper and since they are customizable, they can be a great way to promote a favorite ecofriendly or green organization. Asking for promotional gear from your favorite charity is a great option for the bride looking to save money on favors while championing their favorite causes. You can make an agreement to promote the charity if they can provide the necessary items either for free or a reduced cause. Charities are always looking for ways to promote themselves. If you are really behind one take the opportunity to use your wedding.
