The Surprising Way Celebs Are Giving Back After Their Wedding Day
Celebrities are known for their lavish weddings, with stunning dressed and desserts to die for. They often feature waves of flowers as well, in floral arches, draping centerpieces, sweet ceremony backdrops and more.
Have you ever thought about where those flowers go after the big day is done?
Now celebrities are donating their floral arrangements! Organizations in the US, Canada, and around the world make it easier than ever for celebrities (and people like you and me) to give back after their wedding.
We’ve been gushing over gorgeous wedding photos from these three celebs who also repurposed their flowers afterward… check it out!
If it’s good enough for the royal family, it’s good enough for us.
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot at Windsor Castle in May, they donated their floral arrangements to St. Joseph’s Hospice in London. The only flowers left out were Meghan’s bridal bouquet, which was placed on the Grave of the Unknown Soldier in a royal tradition dating back almost 100 years.
While the glowing couple set off on their honeymoon, happiness was spread in their wake and hundreds of bouquets brought joy to hospice residents instead of being thrown away.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuck, a TV writer, director, and producer, were wed on September 29th. Soft lights and lush floral arrangements set the tone for a romantic outdoor ceremony and reception.
Afterward, Gwyneth and her new husband donated their flowers to local hospitals and medical centers in New York. Love it!
Emmy Rossum married Sam Esmail in 2017. The couple said their “I do’s” in front of a stunning flower arch. As beautiful as it was, it’s just not practical to save it after the ceremony and repurposing it was the best bet.
Emmy ensured that none of her floral arrangements went to waste. Instead, the celeb saw to it that the flowers went to a good home at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC.
