Are you an eco-minded, soon-to-be-bride or groom concerned about the wasteful nature of your wedding flowers?


This blog post will show you why bride Kristen Marszalek in Ontario chose to rent preserved flowers for her wedding day.


  • It’s the Eco-friendly Option - Make an Eco-Friendly Statement. We understand that there are many brides out there who are concerned about the environmental impact of their wedding day.


Research has shown that the average wedding produces roughly 400lbs of waste. It’s exactly why many couples are choosing to go entirely zero-waste! Eco-friendly is the new wedding trend (but an important one).


Unfortunately, flowers are among the most wasteful parts of weddings. From bridal bouquets to centerpieces to accessories, flowers generate a lot of unnecessary waste.


It’s exactly why Kristen decided to rent preserved flowers for her wedding. Not only did this allow her to lessen her environmental impact, but it allowed her to make a statement about what was important to her. Weddings are meant to reflect you, after all.


By choosing preserved flowers over wasteful, fresh flowers, Kristen communicated that the environment is important to her.


  • Don’t Worry About Unpredictable Fresh Flowers. Your choice of wedding flowers is one of the most important decisions you will make when it comes to the look of your wedding.


The problem with fresh flowers is that they can unpredictable. This is especially true for outdoor weddings where both weather and temperatures can vary throughout the day.


One of the major benefits of preserved flowers is that they don’t wilt throughout the day like fresh flowers. Preserved flowers give you the peace of mind knowing that your flowers will look and stay beautiful from beginning to end. That’s exactly why Kristen chose to rent flowers herself.
