Something Green: The Best Wedding-to-Home Plants for Beginners

cacti ceremony

“Bride turned Plant Lady” If that’s not already a thing we’re totally campaigning for it now. You need something to nurture, love, and occupy your time post-wedding and sure, your future spouse totally fits that bill. But…so do plants :)

We’re huge fans of plants in weddings because A) they look SO GOOD, B) plants as decor is a simple way to reduce your environmental footprint, and C) you get to take ’em home in the end! But if plants are not yet your thing and you’re not really looking to hire a plant-sitter while you’re away on your honeymoon, we understand. Below are some of our favorite plants that not only look great, but they’re also easy to care for. That, ladies and gents, is what we call a WIN-WIN.

Grab those garden gloves and let’s get to it!
