Gift Your Flowers to Guests or Staff Another option for your florals is to give the arrangements to guests or the staff of your venue. The staff, especially, appreciate the perk of fresh blooms for their kitchen tables, which works well for destination affairs where guests wouldnt be able to take the flowers anyway. Just be sure to separate the stems from the vessels if you have rented the glassware from your florist. The company will need the rentals back, and more than a few times a guest has walked off with the rented vase!
There is no in between. Either way though, if youre looking for a bit of creative inspo re: decorations that you definitely wont be seeing everywhere this year, look no further than clear acrylics.
Keep the Candles Can you ever have enough candles? Said no one, ever. Unless your wedding pillars are completely melted by the end of the party, pop them into a box to be re-lit at home. Place candles of varying heights along your mantle or save them for a romantic night in the bedroom. If you have a memorable flame, such as a unity candle or a candelabra you placed on your sweetheart table, save the setup for special occasions. Break out the candelabra on your first anniversary for a sentimental toast to one year.
