    I think that I would look for a vase/container and adjust the bouquet to be a table centerpiece.  It might not last forever, but I would enjoy getting to see my bouquet everyday.  I like the jewerlry idea to, maybe take a pic of it before you dis-assemble and include a locket charm in the jewlery with the pic on it.

    I’ve got mine in a vase on my dining room table.  I like it there!

    I have my pearl bouquet. It travels between my kitchen, library and bedroom depending on where I feel dislaying it any given day/week/month. I’d keep it together until you can’t stand it anymore (minimum for me would be a year) then turn it into jewelry. Once you take that step you can’t really go back and I personally can’t wait to use my bouquet as a centerpiece for our anniversary!

    I really like the idea of making it into jewelry that you will wear. Every time you use it you will have memories of your wedding day.

    I love the idea of using the beads to make jewelry! Since the bouquet won’t stay beautiful forever – it’ll get frayed and stained and etc –  I’d prefer to make something special I could wear and enjoy. 🙂

    I think taking it apart and using it for jewelry is a lovely idea! I personally wouldn’t just because I’m very sentimental and I would feel bad for the bouquet (I know this sounds silly!!) if I took it apart. But that’s just me. I think that I’m going to display my DIY bouquet somewhere in our home like Natalieh86

    I hung mine upside down to dry it, and kept it in a vase on a shelf above my bed, next to the few bridesmaids bouquets that got left behind.  I’ll likely do the same this time, but without the drying since they’re paper 🙂

    I am making my BM’s bouquets and am including a few charms in them as well. I am assuming that they would use those charms to make jewelry since they reflect a apart of their personality and of our relationship. So I think that your idea to use the pieces to make a piece or pieces of jewelry are a wonderful idea! 🙂
