At the end of a beautiful Lowndes Grove wedding, the bride came to me and said that she didn't want any of the centerpieces. "Take it all - I don't want to deal with it." Scanning the room all I could think of, "Is my car big enough to handle all of this?"
The next morning, I unpacked my car and my living room was full of mason jars. They were everywhere! Close to 30 cases and I had no plans of doing any canning...I don't know how but maybe I should learn.
I began doing calculations and approximately $450 + time + transport of mason jars were crowding my living room. That is quite a bit to throw away for just one night.
Most brides dispose of their centerpieces or pack their items in a box that goes into storage after the celebration. Vases, arbors, bows, card boxes, even dresses... you name it and it is either going to a landfill or into someones garage or closet.
So after a glass of wine or two, I created the Facebook Group: Charleston Weddings Recycled. It is a place where brides can buy, sell, swap, trade with other brides their gently used ceremony and reception items. Its a great place to find a deal!
The group is growing quickly and all you have to do is find us on Facebook. The more brides the merrier!!!
