@junebride2014:  If you’re feeling generous you could offer to donate some to an Adult Day Center.  When I worked at one we loved artfical flowers because we didn’t have to worry about caring for them and the elderly members loved them because they dressed up the rooms and the tables.  While you wouldn’t get any money you would get a nice warm feeling in your heart!

@renwoman:  This is a great idea!

But you don’t want to do that, I’m sure you can always try to sell it in the market place on these boards! Everyone is looking for a bargain and if they see flowers they want for cheaper anywhere they can find online then I say go for that! I bought a few things of the market place boards for my wedding that were used and no one knew the difference. 🙂

You can try etsy, tradesy, craigslist, ebay, amazon etc. All great places to sell to!

@junebride2014:  I bought some of my wedding stuff on Craigslist, its easier to sell there anyway. Its usually picked up in a public place, youre getting cash in hand, and you don’t have to worry about shipping.  Youre in a pretty heavily trafficed CL area so you should be able to sell it pretty easily on there. Just remember to repost it everyday, make all items available seperately, and take down the posts when sold.

Sure! I also bought some used wedding flowers on Craigslist. It’s best to sell locally so you won’t have to ship. You could list it here in the classified sections to reach a larger audience though.

I seen on pinterest where the bride donates her flowers to an seniors home or pallative care unit at hospitals, but I think those are generally real flowers.

 

I also heard about giving centerpieces away to guests as favors (again, might be real flowers.)

 

However, my FSIL used artificial flowers, and she kept her bouquet and keeps it in a vase in her living room (it’s beautiful and a nice reminder of her wedding, and what I plan to do) and her bridesmaids all kept their bouquets too

@Brace2014:  I did something similar to your sister, I made a wreath with my flowers.

@tksjewelry:  That is beautiful and so creative!! Is that a christmas decoration or does it stay up all year around?

@Brace2014:  I change the bow and leave it up all year (that bow was from last year and was a first failed attempt). The spots on it are really crystal bead stems that I made and used in my centerpieces but they didn’t photograph well.
