I did a beautiful wedding last night, for a couple who is concerned about our planet. They went out of their way to have biodegradable plates, cups and cutlery. Hurrah. I always feel terrible about throwing away plastic plates, cutlery and glasses so I try to recycle and reuse as much as I can. Yes, I am that person. The one who separates garbage and washes stuff for reuse later for family events.
This couple went even further, asking if there was some retirement or nursing home that would enjoy their table flowers. The answer was yes. My mom’s assisted living community embraced the thought of fresh flowers from a wedding filled with love.
As a wedding planner, I, too, try to go the extra mile. So, I spent part of my Sunday filling thrift store vases with roses, chrysanthemums, eucalyptus, ferns and other lovely stems. Let’s all do our part to try to preserve the Earth and to spread joy to others. Thanks, Kristi and Brynnan!
