im having an issue right now: the wedding flowers.
what did you guys do with teh flower after the wedding???
We are thinking on giving them to the guest and donatiing the rest to a nursing house ( we have a lot of flowers).
But our issue: who will take them there?? any transportation company to recommend? organization and that will do that for free maybe? ?? i really wnat donate them to a place where flowers will be appreciated…:-(
Our friends and family, have small cars and some will just not be able to do the work ( too much food, fun and drinks..)
Please if any of you had to deal with this situation if you can share how you find a solution.
Thank you .;-)

What we couldn’t fit in our car and what the guests didn’t take home we left at the venue. The employees were told they were welcome to take what they wanted for themselves and I’m guessing the rest of the flowers were thrown away (heartbreaking!).
I never thought of donating them but then again our venue was pretty out of the way. If you don’t have space the night of your wedding perhaps you can pick them up the next morning? Not sure if your venue would allow this but worth asking. They should be fine overnight.

Many nursing homes have auxiliaries or family support groups. You could try phoning to see if they would have anyone who would volunteer to pick them up the next day.

@julies1949: Thank you guys.
I finally had the idea on posting a message on Facebook ( at first i though that it would not be appropriate to.. but i did it).. so many of teh guest said they are intrested, and some said they want donate to teh hospital,,so i just asked them to put as much as they can in there cars..;-)
supporting groups are not easy to find, when i went to the nursing house, the woman was very nice but explained me that we can drop off the flower at the door, and in the morning they can use them in the rooms ,dining…and the concierge after that offered his help to get the flower that night to his house than take them to the nursing house, i just felt that guy was inapropriate and maybe he is not going really bring them to the nursing place since he was asking strangly about the nature of the flower…saying: what kind of flowers do you have?
i just had a bad feeling from him, and i really wanted to donate them to a place where teh flowers can bring a smile to somebody..;_)
thanks god one of the guest i trust i know she is going take them to the Hospital as she said..;-)
