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!
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.
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?
