It’s no secret that we at L&L Events have a serious love affair for flowers, especially wedding flowers. We are firm believers that floral design can REALLY set your wedding apart; they bring cheery brightness and beauty to the design game that you just can’t get from any other décor. But we have to admit that our hearts break a little every time your floral beauties go to waste, so much so that we have decided to do something about it; wedding flower donation!
Sometimes we are lucky, all of the our client’s wedding flowers are taken home by guests and vendors, allowing for enjoyment to continue for days after the event’s end. Other times, we are not so lucky; perhaps we have clients who are unable to take flowers home, they may have guests that are from out of town and cannot travel with them. We try to find homes for as many arrangements as we can, but sometimes there is nothing else that we can do but to sadly throw them away; it’s cringe-worthy.
As a company that advocates so very strongly for the use of flowers in our design, we decided that enough was enough and we joined in on this amazing movement called wedding flower donation. What an AMAZING idea, we are not sure who came up with this concept, but I’d love to meet you and hug you! From here on out, we will be working with our clients to take any leftover arrangements and loose flowers, rearrange them and then donate them to local nursing homes, hospitals and shelters. No longer will your leftover flowers meet their ends too early in a trash bin, they will be bringing joy and cheer to others in our community.
L&L Events is very proud to offer this a la carte service at no charge to our clients; we are excited to be giving back to our local neighbors and friends. We hope that you will join us in this movement!
