If you're planning a wedding, or simply attending one, you probably know that flowers often play a huge role in the ceremony. And for good reason — flowers are basically the best thing ever.
That being said, when the big day is gone, figuring out what to do with your wedding flowers doesn't have to be a chore. It can be a joyful way to extend the beauty they give!
Tracie Domino, founder and creative director of Tracie Domino Events, tells Bustle that the fate of wedding flowers is often a sad state of affairs, and this must change.
"This sounds harsh, but 99% of the time they go right in the trash," Domino says. "Wedding flowers typically arrive on Tuesday before the event and we spend all that time processing them and getting them open to their most beautiful size. That means, by the time they are sitting on a table at the wedding, they are super fragile and moments from death."
