I’m going to do the shadow box. My bouquet was peacock feathers with greens and one real flower. I plan to pull the flower out (it died before the ceremony – UGH) and I am waiting for the greenery to dry out.

There are places to have your bouquet preserved, check into that or ask your florist.

@MissMaine – Love that idea!!!

I’m drying my petals, crushing them and turning them into beads.  I make jewelry for a hobby and would love to have pieces made from my own flowers.  This is usually done with memorial flowers from funerals and such, but I’m doing it to celebrate my wedding!  Pretty pumped about it, not going to lie ๐Ÿ™‚

Mine is made with real touch flowers and I plan to get a shadow box for it. I haven’t found one that I like yet, though, so right now it is being displayed (propped up) on my makeup/vanity table. For yours, I suggest going to either Michaels or Joanns to look for some flower preserving stuff. I don’t know exactly what it is called, but I have seen it sold in jars and I have heard that it works, but I have never tried it myself.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to give mine to my grandmother. She won’t be able to come to the wedding because she is in the late stages of alzheimer’s and needs constant care. I figure it will be a way for her to enjoy something from the wedding even if she won’t make the connection.

I tossed mine into the green garbage bin the day we got home. I loved it but didn’t want to get mold in our apartment. With so many photos, I know I can remake it anytime. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love my bouquet but I was leaving on my honeymoon the next morning and didn’t really think about it too much before. My mom still had it saved when we ot home over 2 weeks later that it was so dead I just tossed it.

i left mine in Jamaica in my  hotel room, so i assume the maids threw it out.  i was never attached to it. it was just some pretty flowers to carry around that day!  although i didnt throw it myself, i let it sit in my hotel room for the rest of the week after the wedding, so i guess i was a little attached.

I’m tossing mine. Why keep it? The whole point of the bouquet toss is to TOSS it. LOL.
