That won't be a problem. They should arrive moist in plastic bags so they'll be fine for that length of time.

You're going to share pictures afterwards - right :)

I'd ask your wife to kindly take the plants out of the bags and leave them floating in the tank for you - you can plant them properly when you're home and they will be in better condition if they're in water and recieving nutrients and light

You will want to quarantine them before they go into your tank. Put some tank water into a bucket and have wife put them in the bucket or float in a quarantine tank if you have one. Anything can hitchhike on plants. I always inspect them and quarantine BEFORE I will add them into where my fish are. Wife can just float them in the bucket and you can take care of them from there.

I would just leave them in the bags.

Some delicate plants don't take kindly to being unwrapped too quickly/too rough, and at the same time, some can die if they get too dry.

You should handle it. :)

I have the best of both worlds!!! Throw them in the bucket while still in the plastic, no damage and you know they will be wet then.
