Ever wonder what happens to your wedding flowers after your night has ended? If you don’t take them home, they may just be thrown aside as your wedding venue staff clean up. There is another option out there. Petals for Patients has been taking away “gently used” wedding flower arrangements and re-purposing them by creating bouquets to cheer up patients in hospice. How cool is that!!!
And as if giving flowers to someone who is sick or terminally ill is reason enough, Petals for Patients also offers to collect your rented vases and deliver them back to your florist, completely taking that step off your list. Petals Floral Design, a previously featured MarriedInMilwaukee.com vendor, is one of their preferred vendors that not only welcomes this option, but promotes it to their couples. There is a minimal fee involved for this service, but you get a tax deductible receipt for the value of your flowers – great for your future joint tax return filing.
So when you wake up the next morning after your wedding day ready to attend your gift opening, or heading off to your honeymoon to lounge on the beach; patients, at a time when they need it most, can be cheered up by the joy of receiving flowers, your wedding flowers. You should feel pretty good about that.
