Lots of brides want to jump both feet first into all the many details involved in planning their weddings, when really, there are a few items they do not have to check off the “to do” list right away:

  • Despite the excitement and fun involved in choosing a wedding party, this does not have to be immediately done, although perhaps within one month of getting engaged. This allows ample time for the party to save up for their wedding expenditures, such as their bridesmaid gowns and tuxedos.
  • Another incredibly fun task – selecting the wedding cake – can actually be put off in favor of more pressing items. The average lead time to place a wedding cake order is about three months, although if the bakery is extremely popular, you may want to order within six months of your big day.
  • One of the prettiest and most creative tasks is to choose all your wedding flowers, but this job does not have to be done the minute you get engaged. The general consensus among wedding professionals is to start thinking about what you like and start to gather ideas first and then place your order within about six months of your wedding date.

Wouldn't it be nice to know your wedding flowers that you so carefully chose and paid for are going to be used following your nuptials as well? Here are some simple ways to recycle those beautiful buds!:

1. Place flowers on the graves of loved ones that passed away before your wedding day.

2. Send your arrangements along with wedding guests after your reception, so they can place them in a vase and enjoy them in their homes.

3. Arrange to have someone deliver them to a local hospital/hospice, senior care facility or center, women's shelter, or homeless shelter.

4. Compost them.

5. Have them professionally pressed or dried.

Who says you have to follow the rules at your wedding and have a champagne toast? If you and your spouse are beer lovers, why not create your own trend and grab a local craft brew to says "cheers" to? Check with your local craft brewery to see if they will offer you a tasting session to choose the beer that speaks to you! You can even see about renting an on-tap station for your reception, so guests can serve themselves. 

If you're really a beer aficionado, you can use hops and wheat to dress up your wedding flower centerpieces, bouquets, and bouttonieres or use growlers as part of your reception decor. Bottoms up!
