Recycle Your Wedding Flowers - Green Ideas

posted on: February 7, 2013

Red Pink Fuscia Rose Orchid Wedding Centerpiece

A couple years ago I met a local florist, Belle Feuille Floral Design, who recycles the big beautiful floral arrangements left over from events like weddings, funerals, and church services, turning them into floral gifts for hospice, hospital, and cancer patients.  What a beautiful way to spread the love and make an investment in gorgeous flowers go even further!  A quick search on the web reveals that she's not the only florist who utilizes a team of volunteers to help spread the love- so as you're meeting with florists for your wedding day- ask if they will recycle the flowers or if they know of a local program that will pick up your flowers after the event for donation.  If your florist doesn't offer a program like this, ask your family members if they know of a retirement home or hospital that accepts floral donations, and if members of your family would be willing to help deliver the flowers after the wedding.

  1. This is a great idea for the budget bride. I am going to mention this to my couples in Regina when I meet them about their wedding photos.

  2. I think it is a great site. Nice idea.

  5. I thought it's green bouquet but it's almost red, any way I like it so much it reminds me bridal bouquets Manhattan Beach.

  6. Great post! Really liked your friend’s work. It’s simply commendable and fabulous. The idea of recycling is quite impressive. Will surely try it. Have recently attended my sister’s lunch party and there she had prepared everything perfectly with awesome floral arrangements. And used Flower Delivery New York service for it.
