15th October 2007 11:22I'm getting married right after christmas and church will be full of flowers. In my typically well-organised way I picked a colour scheme that doesn't work with red, and the church I'm using always has red flowers at christmas. I checked with priest and its no problem to clear away the christmas displays until after the wedding but while normally you might leave the flower displays in the church, there would be no point in leaving mine at that time of year. I don't want to be wasteful and was thinking of asking if florist can reuse some of the church arrangements for the reception. I don't want to ask the florist if this is a no-no. Unfortunately my colour scheme was settled before the date was, or I'd just have taken advantage of the church's decoration and saved on flowers altogether. Feeling pretty wasteful as it is, getting special flowers done. Is this putting too much pressure on florist (she would have to pick up flowers after mass and bring to the venue)? Also - is the florist usually responsible for clearing away the pew ends after the mass, or should I ask someone to do this?
