Fresh flowers, nine times out of ten, are found in the arrangements during the reception. But one thing to consider is that these flowers are indeed going to die and be thrown away. I predict in the next several years we will see a lot of the following: Living Arrangements. Living arrangements use plants that have not been cut down or pulled from their life source. Couples can choose their favorite flowering tree (depending on season) or use potted plants/orchids that guests can take home with them at the end of the night. Another great idea is to donate the trees after the wedding to your local park conservancy. This way your wedding décor becomes a permanent fixture in your community. What a great way to honor your vows and to continue the circle of life!
