Therefore, it is always better if you ask your florist about in-season and local flowers to maintain the freshness and importantly, best quality.

We all know that there is a lot of leftover at weddings, either food from people’s plates, alcohol bottles, or disposables. It is your duty to check how your venue approaches to these issues; does the venue prefer composting the leftovers, or do they believe in donating the same to the needy. Because food should never be wasted.
It’s time we think of bringing sustainable elements in the wedding events, and let’s get the best of both worlds by fusing fancy and fair!
