5 Ways to Re-purpose Your Flowers After the Wedding
We are so excited to be featuring a guest post from Wedding planner and stylist Becky Hart of Event Crush. We have known Becky since we both started our businesses 4 years ago and we have loved watching her kick butt in the wedding world. Definitely go check her out: here!
Today, Becky is talking about ways to repurpose your flowers after your wedding, which is something we LOVE! If you want to repurpose your flowers, these are some really cool ways to save a piece of your wedding.
Hi! I'm Becky and I'm a wedding planner and designer located in Eugene, Oregon and providing services all over this beautiful state. Me and Joanna and Taylor go way back; in fact we started our businesses right around the same time! We did our first styled shoot together, and I was even lucky enough to coordinate each of their weddings. Since then we’ve worked on countless weddings and shoots together and I am always blown away by their creativity and design skills.
I'm excited to share on a topic today that I thought would be perfect for those perusing a floral design blog - what to do with the flowers AFTER the wedding! As a wedding coordinator, I cannot tell you how many flowers I've seen thrown in the trash at the end of the night. It honestly breaks my heart (and just feels wrong!) throwing away these gorgeous blooms that still have life left in them. Thankfully there are lots of ways that your wedding flowers can be re-purposed and given new life following the wedding – read on for a few of my favorite ways!
1. Send them home with guests
The easiest way to give new life to your flowers is to send them home with guests as favors. You can have the DJ make an announcement that the centerpieces are available to take home, and you won't have a single one left. This involves zero work on your part (unlike the other options), which is super nice! Just make sure that if you do this, the centerpieces are in "disposable" containers (aka they don't need to be returned to the florist/rental company), or you have other containers you can move the flowers in to at the end of the night for guests to take them home in.
