Worried about what will happen to your blooms after the wedding? Consider utilizing potted plants rather than traditional floral arrangements, which have a shelf life of only a few days. Plants can easily be potted ahead of time in decorative containers that match your wedding's colors and theme. Miniature potted plants also make memorable wedding favors. Celebrants in Arizona or surrounding desert areas might consider potting succulents like aloe vera and placing them in clusters to serve as eye-catching centerpieces. Potted orchids or zinnias are elegant and colorful options for spring or summer weddings. Although everyone appreciates a nice bag of mints or a box of matches, guests are sure to enjoy a plant much longer.
