That's a great idea!  I wanted to do it too, but my cousin and his wealthy fiance are having alot of flowery things at their wedding just two weeks before mine!  They even had their "save the dates" overlaid paper with wildflower seeds embedded in it.  Nichols Seeds sells different seed mixes for weddings.  http://www.nicholsgardennursery.com/store/dept.asp?dept%5Fid=106&mscssid=7CHGGPLRTQ859KH6NXRR1T2S1CV64VB0

BTW annuals bloom only once, biennials bloom every other and perienials bloom every years.  I won't go into the latin Cheesy

Yeah, Rype, when you said that I had to go back and re-read my post, and of course I mispoke.  Although, technically, the terms only refer to the life cycle of a plant, and while it is generally understood that plants available at nursery that are defined as Annuals will have to be replaced the following year, it's really only because they don't tend to go to seed or go to seed in a viable way.  There are many wild flowers that are annuals, but they go to seed and new plants come up the next year.  Bad me, though.  (Don't worry, I took 2 years of latin, so you don't need to go into it for me, but perhaps reminding me to review my posts before posting them would be a good idea. Wink )

Yeah, now I feel like a jerk.  I only wrote it so people who didn't know anything wouldn't be confused.

Also I should've elaborated on the feather thing.  Tied to the quill would be a slip of paper with the verse or date or whatever.  Another idea I had was to spraypaint acorns gold, and write on them.  Or make my own version of those river rocks with the design etched into them.  I'd just be able to stamp them and then maybe spray sealant over them. 

I really don't want the favor to be something that will just be junk in people's houses though.  Just yesterday I went to a bridal shower and the favor was hand sewed felt flowers, on scewers stabbed into foam which was cover in green crinkly paper and in a terra cotta pot.  Adorable?  Yes, but now I've got it home and what do I do with it?  So I think that your mini book idea is gold LittleNecy.  Don't mean to hijack your thread.

It's too bad that feather place doesn't have any albino peacock feathers.  My aunt had an albino peacock, and those feathers are to DIE for.  They're all white or cream, but anywhere there is irridescence on a regular peacock, it shows up GOLD on the albinos.  SO pretty.  I'm sure there's something besides just a feather, something useful.  What about making them into quill pens?  It's really easy.  You just cut the point of the feather at an angle, roughly 45 degrees, then cut a notch in the pointed bit.  You could include a tiny bottle of ink.

Thanks, Rype - I appreciate that... But don't worry about it -  I just wanted to show you guys that the reason I didn't jump on the wildflower suggestion because I made these for my sil's wedding just over a year ago:



The little vellum 'envelope' is filled with wildflower seeds. [In case you're wondering, the spots all over the card is the seeds leaking out of the holes after a move. I should have glued the bow on! Hindsight is 20/20. Grin]

Besides,we were married 10 years ago with all the trimmings... We're having a renewal because for 6 of those 10 years, my husband worked out of town and we didn't have much of a marriage... To make a long story short, now we all live under one roof & are doing swimmingly! So a recommitment ceremony just seemed appropriate...

I like your feather idea - and the acorn idea - and the river rock idea!

Howzabout a river rock refrigerator magnet (like those WONDERFUL glass marble refrigerator magnet)Huh
Packaged nicely it would be different, attractive and representative of those earlier vows (Like A Rock!).
No writing, just a smooth stone. They're available in all kinds of colors.
