Wedding flowers are being reused for pure happiness

Back when she worked as an event planner, Jennifer Grove oversaw countless weddings. And besides brides, grooms, cake, ushers, bridesmaids, and attendees, there was something else that played a huge role in many of those weddings: flowers; lots and lots of flowers. Flowers that, sadly, wouldn’t last much longer than the reception.

“I would have to tell people, ‘Yep, you can throw all those flowers out,'” Grove told Upworthy. There had to be a better solution than just throwing out perfectly good flowers, and that’s what led Grove to start Repeat Roses.

Repeat Roses helps place gently used flowers in the hands of those who might need a little beauty in their lives. Specifically, to people living in hospitals and nursing homes.
