Lauren ditched store-bought favors and grew a unique keepsake her friends and family still talk about. She says:
I skipped wasting a bunch of money on favors. I hate getting crappy candy or trinkets at weddings, so the minute I was engaged, I started to grow my succulents, so each of my guests could take one home. I used these small metal pots that I found at Ikea for cheap. The best part is when we visit, people still are growing them and ask for growing tips. It is really nice to always see people still enjoying them.
