Lovely Calla Lilies: Small Flowers
To be even more sustainable, Rachel and Eric asked Sharon to reuse their flowers. For their rehearsal dinner, they had white daisies in clear plastic pots with white polka dots. The pots had been used for centerpieces at a previous fundraiser Rachel's mother worked on. Sharon was able to incorporate the flowers into the wedding decor the next day to maximize their use.
Similarly, the buffet pieces were transferred during strike for reuse at the buffet the next morning, and the apples were donated to local families. And speaking of donations, Rachel and Eric made donations to CASA LA, which is Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, in lieu of favors. They also registered through the Wedding Channel and elected to have a portion of the proceeds from their gift registry donated to a family violence prevention organization.
