Because orchids are associated with love and beauty, it has made them a preferred choice of flowers for weddings. Their exotic beauty creates an inviting and glamorous atmosphere in both indoor and outdoor wedding venues. Orchids are commonly used in bridal bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, centerpieces on reception tables, and as wedding props. However, if you really want to leave a pleasant and lasting impression on your wedding guests, we suggest that you give them mini orchids as wedding favors.
Mini orchids make ideal wedding favors
Mini Phalaenopsis orchids are usually no more than 12 inches tall, and they can fit into a small pot that can be easily carried in one hand. Unlike other common wedding favors such as chocolates, cookies and bouquets, mini orchids can last for a long time, and they may remind your guests of your wedding day when they look at them. Plus, a wedding reception table full of orchids looks so luxurious!
By giving these beautiful plants to your guests, you are not only giving them things that can add beauty to their homes; you are also introducing them to the interesting hobby of orchid growing. Those who end up picking up the hobby will definitely be grateful to you for giving them such wonderful gifts.
To really show your appreciation to your wedding guests for being a part of the most important day of your life, you can place a “thank you” charm around the pots of the mini orchids. This can be easily done by hanging the charm on an elastic string and tying it around the pot. Make sure you tie the string tightly to prevent it from slipping off. It is better to use a square pot than a round pot, because it will help keep the string in place.

Mini orchids as wedding party favors
A simple way to thank everyone in your bridal party for being a part of your special day is with a mini orchid. It will remind them of your big day for months to come with proper care. Pair a white or colorful orchid with other items in a care package, such as:
- An afterparty box with recovery essentials like Tylenol, a bottle of water, a bag of coffee beans or an eye mask
- A self-care box with bubble bath, a silky robe, wine or luxurious lotions
- Personalized boxes with monogrammed tote bags, a tumbler or flask, socks or jewelry
