Amoung the girls at JYW, throwing out flowers at the end of a wedding is totally not okay. We don’t like to waste the beautiful little blooms that were used to make our client’s dreams come true the day before, so we don’t!
Instead, we use a volunteer organization out of Canmore called Flower Share, which comes to the wedding venue the day after the event to pick up the leftover flowers. Flower Share will then distribute the flowers to hospitals, nursing homes, hospice societies, and other local organizations in need of cheer. It’s pretty amazing!
Using your wedding as a means to give back to the community and put a smile on a stranger’s face… It’s just such a feel good thing to do! Please feel free to contact us if you’d like to get in touch with Flower Share and set up your own wedding flower donation. We would be happy to pass along more information.
Hugs & Happy Wedding Wishes,
