Your bouquet is a very important keepsake to keep as a memento from your wedding. Many brides don't to say goodbye to their wedding bouquet, and you don't have to either!
Some brides decide to simply dry their bouquet, but with time the petals might dry and your bouquet will fall apart. But we have some helpful ways to help you preserve your wedding bouquet forever.
If you are planning on leaving for your honeymoon directly after your wedding, ask your mother, friend, sibling, or florist to take care of your wedding bouquet and have everything done the way you want it.
We have compiled simple and easy ways to help you preserve your wedding bouquet, here they are:
Press a few blooms from your bouquet in a frame. You can also add a picture of you at your wedding, or even other keepsakes all in the same frame, such as the wedding invitation card or a napkin.
Silica gel drying and freeze-drying, which are done by professionals, save the natural three-dimensional shape of the flowers. The wedding bouquet is then sealed inside a glass container like a shadow box or a glass dome.
Pendant or Bracelet
A flower from your wedding bouquet can be set into a pendant. The flowers are dried and then set in resin to mold, and then brought together with sterling silver to create this eternal keepsake piece.
You can create a wedding memory to use as an ornament, all you have to do is fill your petals in a glass ornament and tie it.
Select as many flowers from your fresh wedding bouquet as you want, spread and press them inside a book or heavy object. You can use parchment paper to display them, then have them arranged in a frame in whichever way that you like.
