Donate Your Wedding Arrangements Since you are jetting off to the honeymoon suite, consider giving your floral arrangements to a local charitable cause, suggests Maya Katz of Alimay Events. Several companies, including Repeat Roses, Random Acts of Flowers, Petals with Purpose, and the Bloom Project, will pick up your wedding flowers and redistribute them to nursing homes, homeless shelters, and hospitals to spread further cheer. You can also reach out to local womens shelters and childrens medical centers to see if they will take your leftover botanicals directly. Something to make you feel a little bit better about that bill, right?
Add Family Photos to Your Gallery Wall If you created a special altar to honor your family members, take these framed photos home and add them to your mantle or gallery wall. Invest in silver frames or some that match your home decor for an easy transition. If the photos are already framed, take them as they are to your wedding—talk about a quick cash savings! “Bringing the photos from home in their original frames usually works very well,” explains Laura Irizarry-Garcia of LIG Events. “Guests love looking at them, and its a great way to include those family members who might not be with you any longer.
You can opt for an outdoor wedding in the meadows full of lit candles, trees full of lanterns and lights. Candles are easy and elegant table decorations that make a distinctive atmosphere. Floating candles are likewise a remarkably popular reception decoration choice.
