My daughter is crafty and she was able to buy a huge amount of high quality - semi dried lavender, on eBay for less than $100.00 total. She made table decorations with the lavender by binding a large bunch together with wire and then ribbons. They sat on the tables. Because they were dryish, they were able to stand up without vases. They looked good and smelled wonderful. The fresh flowers also included the dried lavender.
She also purchased wooden candle lanterns for the tables on eBay. She also decorated these with lavender. People took them home as mementos. All this lavender "stuff" is still being used and it still smells wonderful. She added a small sprig of the lavender to the invitations. For "green" weddings, I thought lavender plants would be nice, or lavender seeds.
Sounds like a great idea! I will pass this on to my daughter. She is planning her wedding!
