How to Donate Wedding Flowers to Charity

Have you ever thought about what to do with your wedding flowers after the wedding? You could keep them. You could give them away to guests. Some just throw them away (which breaks my heart). Or you could donate wedding flowers to charity. You’re probably thinking, “How do I do that?” Well, I have the answer for you.

“Flowers are a true blessing of this earth,

and are meant to be shared.”

Forget Me Knot Flowers is a local nonprofit company that specializes in repurposing flowers from weddings and events.

HOW IT STARTED

Forget Me Knot Flowers started as a solution to a problem. Leona Davis, the founder of this floral recycling company, was searching for a place to donate her daughter’s wedding flowers with no luck. Her answer was to start her own company that specialized in repurposing wedding flowers into beautiful bedside bouquets for people in local hospitals, nursing homes, and care facilities that may not receive many visitors. The flowers and conversation brightened all of the recipients’ days.

HOW IT WORKS

Want to donate your wedding flowers? All you need to do is contact Forget Me Knot Flowers. They will pick up your flowers at the end of your wedding. Then they will rearrange them into smaller bedside vases. Next, they will deliver them with a smile to residents at places such as nursing homes, women’s shelters, Ronald McDonald House, etc. You can even request a location that is near and dear to your heart.

Forget Me Knot Flowers is a local nonprofit company that services South Jersey and the Philadelphia area. They will venture into Delaware too. If you are a client of Floral Designs by Jessi and are not in their service area, we will pick up and deliver your flowers to Forget Me Knot Flowers after your wedding or event.

There is a tax-deductable donation that covers expenses for repurposing and delivering your flowers. To find out more about this, click here.

Just think of all the faces that you will put a smile on from donating your wedding flowers!
