Flowers are absolutely beautiful...and can be pretty expensive. When you start factoring in the decor/floral for the ceremony, the wedding party, the reception hall it all starts to add up pretty quickly. Next thing you know, the budget is out the window.
Why not let the flowers do "double duty." As you can see within the photo, these aisle markers tied to the chair are in vases and ready for transport to the reception hall.
The wedding ceremony can be as long or as short as your vows allow and what a waste to see these beautiful flowers tossed when they can be used again.
At this ceremony, the bride and groom made use double use of the aisle markers, the floral attached to the white arbor where they said their vows and with the urns that flanked both sides of the alter.
When the ceremony concluded, A Charleston Event and the helpful staff of Rivertowne Country Club moved the florals into the reception hall. Because Keepsakes Florist planned ahead, the transition was simple. The aisle markers were quickly laid upon the cocktail tables, the floral urns were moved in front of the stage where the band played, and the florals attached to the arbor were placed within the buffet.
