So I’ve mentioned it here and there and it has finally arrived! I had my bouquet freeze dried and mounted in a frame box with one of our invitations and a photo that DH picked. My sister picked it up for me today and I am so in love with this, it’s such a special way to keep all of these memories. DH thought he would hate it, and had prior mentioned me keeping it on my bedside table, but when he saw it he was so impressed that he put it on the mantel <3. I am so in love I had to share!!!

I love that idea. Where did you get this done?

@Pupperoni: a lady where we live does this in her garage…I’m sure however, that other people must do this too

Awesome! I wish I’d thought to look into this before our wedding

That looks beautiful- love it! Nice touches too w/ the invite & photo added. I looked into getting this done, but was put off by the high prices I found online. What kind of flowers are those? Mine will be orchids & I read they don’t preserve as well as other flowers do….

@CaptainSpaulding: my flowers are calla lillies. My cell picture makes everything look blue, but it’s actually purple. She actually stated that calla’s and orchids are the most difficult to do, but they just have to do it for longer. I guess the average freeze drying of a rose is 2 weeks but mine took over 6 weeks. The freeze drying itself was $150. Then I got to choose from a varying price range of what I wanted. This cost me $360. My sister also had hers done, when she got married and hers was $240. It may sound expensive, but I don’t think there’s a better way to display these things. I am super in love and so glad that I did this.
