At most weddings, couples ask their guests to take home the centerpieces as gifts. If so, the bride and groom are usually left with their bouquet and boutonniere and possibly the head table flowers to preserve. If you decide not to keep your flowers, you can also donate them to a local hospital, charity or other organizations.
