Give your guests a budget-friendly favor with a geeky twist #Favors & Flowers#nintendo#steal-this-idea#succulents#wedding favors August 6 2013 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by: Adorn Photography Photos by Adorn Photography You may remember Andrea and Steve's Mario-themed wedding for geek-lovers everywhere. But did you also notice the totally appropriate mini cactus favors they had? Cacti are a match for Mario and frankly, LOTS of wedding themes (and non-themes)! Andrea was super smart and grabbed them in bulk from Amazon. 36 assorted spiky cuties for only $40. Multitask them as decor, centerpieces, and easy-peasy items to take home if there are extras. Oh, and bonus: if you're more into succulents, those are available, too! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Show/Hide comments [ 2 ] Thanks for the idea!! We already have some Mario/Zelda etc. touches done and had given up on favors because it's really not in our budget but this actually might be a cheap enough idea (I'm thinking of doing little packets of seeds to plant instead of actual cacti, making it like… crazy cheap.) Also, today I learned we *do* actually have a Michigan native cactus (Prickly pear, or the OMG INCREDIBLE DEFLATING CACTUS), so BONUS. The more you know! ~*~*~** Reply Great idea!
