The best way to save money on your wedding flowers and get the most bang for your buck? Simply repurpose them! A stunning ceremony arch doesn’t need to go to waste. We’re big advocates of repurposing ceremony flowers for the reception and today, the team at Borrowed and Blue Events is here to show you how:

The main focus was to create an epic floral ceremony installation that could be repurposed for the reception set up. We highlighted textures with soft, feminine tones and wanted to inspire couples to create something unique while keeping traditional elements. Probably one of my favorite parts about this day was that this shoot was an all-girls team, and took place on International Women’s Day!

Big feminine energy going into these ceremony and reception vignettes! Although the tones are sweet and soft, this editorial speaks boldly about how to reuse wedding florals in a practical way and nailing diverse textures. Eva Cherneff Photography tells this story:

Repurpose Ceremony Flowers for the Reception

The big reveal! The team took the two floral tower installations and repurposed them to frame the archway over the reception table. Obviously, the way you reuse your wedding flowers will look different depending on a number of things (the floral design and the venue being two main players). The biggest takeaway is to discuss ideas with your florist + planning team to create something that works for your style and space. And, bonus! Letting your flowers do double the work is environmentally friendly. In fact, here are more things you can reuse, rent, or donate for an eco-friendly wedding.
