Weddings are a perfect opportunity for couples to let their personality shine by using personal touches and unique elements in their wedding style and decor. From the stationery and decor, to the food, entertainment and especially the wedding favors. Our favorites have always been favors that have a touch of the home-grown feeling. Here are a few ideas of favors you can find locally:
Check your local farmers market or nursery for mini succulent plants, redwood seedlings or flower seeds

Look for local honey at your farmers market, or contact local beekeepers to get honey straight from the source. Jars of honey or honey sticks are always a crowd-pleaser!
Candy shops and bakeries can provide unique edible favors that can be custom to your theme. Cookies, cupcakes and candy buffets are a fun treat for your guests. You can go for traditional flavors or something more unique like bacon flavored donuts or cupcakes! Image courtesy of Sublime Cake Design, Redding
Of course these are just a few ideas to get you started, the options are endless and your community has a lot to offer so it is a great place to look first.
