Maybe you should do them as centerpieces and not as favors instead. I’m not really a fan of any living thing being given away as favors (Plant, animal, mineral or otherwise) but I suppose it could be a happy medium since you could take them home afterward and care for them. A lot of people aren’t going to take home a favor, and it will simply sit there until you take it home.

I had succulents as centrepieces and told people they were welcome to take them home if they wanted. They all went and I know they were to people who wanted them, not just because they felt obliged. I replanted the ones from my bouquet as a souvenir.

shawna.darling4:  Those who choose not to have favors are not cheap. Many favors are junk and a complete waste of money.

If you do your centerpiece as a breakaway centerpiece with small pots of succulents grouped together it does double duty as a gorgeous centerpiece and a favor.

like this , only succulents

This pic shows quite well how we did things. We had 2 logs per table with a larger pot in the middle. My Mum gave the pots to friends who had helped out for free with stuff like decorating the church and our cake. The logs were for anyone who wanted them. We also gave each person a cooking pot with sugared almonds (the cooking pots are part of DH’s island culture) as an individula favour. Several of our guests were from overseas and couldn’t take plants away anyway but I had planned on burning the logs and repotting the succulents. I was quite surprised when they were all taken.
