My Prefix comes before all others, but why it does, I'm not sure.

My Infix hides those waiting to change their lives.

My Suffix is something made from a plant, without a different plant.

Hint 1:

The actual infix and the clue for the infix are spelled slightly different. The infix is usually only used on one single day.

Hint 2:

The prefix is a single letter.

Hint 3:

The infix can be linked with religion

Hint 4:

The first plant mentioned in the suffix clue tends to grow large, but the second plant grows small, and is used to make a drink.

Hint 5:

The "without" part of the suffix clue means that it is the first plant's word, with the letter(s) of the second plant removed.

Is this Riley riddle

AVAILABLE?

My Prefix comes before all others, but why it does, I'm not sure.

Your prefix is A, the first letter which comes before all others.

My Infix hides those waiting to change their lives.

When she gets married, a bride wears a VEIL; the infix VAIL has a slightly different spelling.

My Suffix is something made from a plant, without a different plant.

This could be ABLE, but I’m not quite sure why.

Other hint:

AVAILABLE seems to fit with the clue “open for business” in the title.

    $\begingroup$ I had the exact same thoughts, curious to see if it's right :) $\endgroup$ Sep 15, 2018 at 18:55
  • $\begingroup$ that's the right answer, I'll accept it once you figure out why the suffix is what it is. I'll add another hint. $\endgroup$
