Tip: Donate Your Leftover Wedding Food

Considering it's definite that you'll have plenty left, share it with those less fortunate

Consider donating leftover food from your wedding meal to a local homeless shelter, women's shelter or retirement homes.

Flowers, signage and centerpieces can also be donated to these locations to brighten up someone's day.

Make sure to check with your state and see if their regulations allow the donation of leftover food items.

If this is the case, provide your guests with recycled cardboard doggie bags and sustainable wooden utensils to bring home as many leftovers as they want.

Provide recycled paper bags with handles so they can carry out the food with ease at the end of the night.
