When selecting your wedding favors, look no further than your local greenhouse or garden center. Small potted plants make charming favors that guests can take home and enjoy for weeks (or in the case of the young evergreens above, years) after your ceremony. Often, floral retailers offer good prices when these small items are purchased in bulk. Enjoy an evening with your bridesmaids to decorate each plant with tasteful fabrics and ribbons that will blend well with the rest of your wedding décor. Or, purchase small vases or ceramic pots to set each plant into. Then, not only will guests enjoy the blooms or foliage following your wedding, but also a delicate container that can be reused throughout the year.
