Only do it if you know your crowd will like it…. I bartended a wedding where they gave little tree seedlings as favors with a peom about their love growing or something and at the end of the night there were about 50 of them left lying around the room. It was so sad.

Thank you so much for your advice everyone!! I really appreciate it!!
I also liked the other “memorable favors” that the inspiration infographic listed like the mini apple pies. or would that be too complicated/expensive? ahhh why must wedding planning be so stressful lol.

I’d go for it and not stress out too much about it! Honestly I didn’t even have favors and since most of my guests were traveling no one really cared. Go for something that represents the two of you and succulents are cute! I just attended a wedding where the centerpieces were herbs! If I weren’t traveling I’d totally take a pot home.

I had 3 tiny succulents in pots, stuck into a piece of wood as table centres at my wedding in August. Had never seen any others in the UK and knew people would either find it cool or slightly weird. At the end of the evening the place was raided and people were fighting over them. I would say go for it, at any time of year!!

@ThisYearsGirl27: Just because your wedding will be during the fall, doesn’t mean all of your decor has to be fall themed.
That being said, I love succulents and I would love to get one as a favor. However, I think this idea really only appeals to the women who would be attending the wedding. I know my Fiance would hate to get a plant as a favor, which is why we’re having an edible favor. Food appeals to everyone.

Succulents are the only plant I can’t kill, so I’m there (haha!)
But I agree that not all guests (especially male) will take them home.
If you’re thinking about something edible, a friend gave leaf-shaped chocolates at her fall wedding, they were a huge hit.

I think it’s okay but many people won’t take them home or won’t be able to take them home. Flying with them won’t be easy and international flight won’t allow. We also considered plants but going for edible (lindt truffles).

I love the idea! But I would be cautious and see what your flying guests will be able to take home. If you like it do it. It’s your wedding.

Love this idea! Fiance and I both got a small succulent in little tin bucket-like planters from a wedding we went to last year and they were a huge hit. Unfortuantely, mine died after about 6 months (I’m terrible with plants), but FI’s is thriving and it’s a great reminder of an awesome wedding! PS It was a September wedding 🙂

I wouldn’t want to babysit a potted plant or two in my wedding garb. Especially if I had any distance to drive or was staying in a hotel.
