For an easy DIY, pot some tiny cacti in recycled tin cans. Use these cute planters as wedding decor, and then give your guests a favor they’ll actually use (shout out to Jordan almonds!). We have a feeling you’ll be keeping one (or five) for your own newlywed nest, too.

The semi-naked cake trend is perfect for the rustic, outdoorsy vibe of a desert-themed wedding.
