Recycle Choose hardy arrangements for the rehearsal dinner that can be used again at the ceremony. Or move flowers from the church to the reception. Post-pictures use bridesmaids’ bouquets as reception centerpieces. Hold Back Charleston churches are so beautiful, you don’t need a lot of embellishment, agree most in the local wedding industry. So keep it simple; use green potted plants or nothing at all. Forgo Tradition Skip costly add-ons like throwaway tossing bouquets, flower girl hair wreaths, and even corsages for mothers and mothers-in-law. (Try the latter only if both moms won’t be offended.) Do It Yourself Order flowers directly from a local or online wholesaler and have a bouquet-making party instead of a typical bridesmaids’ luncheon.
