I recently read two articles on the Offbeat Bride that really struck a cord with me. After my sisters wedding, I remember loading up my family's vehicles with extra flowers, food and favors that I knew would just be tosses in the trash the next day. Offbeat provides a guide to donating your bouquets to local hospitals to make someone's day a little brighter. I LOVED this idea because let's be honest, you were tired of carrying that bouquet ten minutes into the day anyway.
They also suggested donating any extra food to a shelter or local animal rescue. If you know anything about me, you know how much I love animals so this idea really interested me. If your caterer allows you to box your food to take home, why not give back to those in need?!
Giving back to your community is so important and these small gestures can go a long way. Something to think about!
