Anyone know how to preserve your bouquet? My florist couldn’t recommend a company that does this, so did anyone DIY preserving, or drying your bridal bouquet?
I was thinking of keeping mine in the fridge til we get back from honeymoon until I can figure out what to do it. Bad idea?

How long is your honeymoon? It’s not going to keep perfectly in the fridge and will droop and die even though it’s being kept cold..

There is also a place that turns the flowers into jewelry beads

I just checked out blossomstobeads and will probably go that route. I’m also looking into http://www.freezeframeit.com

I caught a boquet once, and I just turned it over and hung it from something (a knob on a china cabinet) and it preserved PERFECTLY. I still have it 6 years later!!! So yes, we dried it! (the bridal boquet)

I am getting mine preserved by a professional. There are many prices ranges. They can just preserve a few flowers in a glass ornament for as little as $20 or the entire bouquet, along with an invitation, and shoes…it’s whatever you want.

Mine have been freeze dried and reconstructed into my bouquet and placed in a shadow box. I pick it up this week.
I used http://www.florage.com
They’ve been around for years . . . I took a friend’s flowers there and they did a shadow box with their invitation, the flowers, and photos. She’s had it since 1992 and it still looks great!
