My MIL helped preserve my bouquet,  she had these crystals that she bought at a craft store that are used specifically for preserving flowers.  She dumped some in an airtight container and then put my bouquet in and then put the crystal/powder over the top of it and inside the petals.  After a couple weeks (mine stayed in 4 months until my SIL’s wedding) you can take it out and its totally dried and preserved.  I have it displayed in a vase on my cabinet shelf and no petals or leaves have fallen off at all (its been about 6 months since we took it out).

I have a couple at home of it going in the box before it was dried after, I can take a pic of it now when I get home later and post it on here.

For a very different take on this concept check out http://www.flowersintopaintings.com.  This is really unique.  I have seen one in person and it is amazing.

I’ve had this picture saved on my computer since I got engaged. I wish I knew where the picture was from/who it belonged to, because I love this! I really want to know details about that frame.

My sister had this done something like this website: http://www.timelessblooms.com

I remember I had to take her bouquet for her right away to a place in town that did it so the bouquet was fresh.
