I wish I could help!  Mine has dried in great condition and is now sitting on top of one of our cabinets 😉 I would love to hear others’ ideas as well!

p.s. your icon is hilarious! I loved Lambchop!

I have no idea what to do with them after they are dried out. I am getting mine preserved. I saw something about making thank you notes out of the flowers, but I am not sure if they have to be live still for that.

Someone posted a website on here awhile back that uses your flowers (dried out or live) and turns them into glass beads.  They will make you a broach, necklace, rosary, whatever and then send you the leftover flowers that they didn’t use. I thought that was an interesting idea… but never saved the link.

I’m placing mine on my grandfather’s grave (he died last year and will be missed so much at the wedding).

@nmsoonerbride: That is a beautiful idea.  Since we are having a desination wedding, that won’t really be possible, but I think that is incredibly special and thoughtful.

I had mine freezedried.  It’s going to be rearranged into a shadow box so it resembles the original.

I had to throw mine out too.  We went to Maui for a week after the wedding, and by the time we got back home, my bouquet was a wilted mess.  Frown

I’m taking one rose out to take to my grandmother’s grave, and I’m giving the rest of the bouquet to my FMIL. It will be hers to deal with after that, LOL! 😉

I know I have heard of people donating them to a hospital.  They often go to new mothers or the elderly.  I always thought this was a super sweet idea.

I did what iswimibikeirun did with freeze drying. 

My shadowbox looks awesome, and I am excited to put it on the wall, but have to wait until our bedroom furniture arrives so I know where to hang it.

I would like to have someone create a duplicate bouquet out of silk flowers to display in our home but I’m not sure where to find someone to do that.  I tried to dry my bouquet myself and it doesn’t look too good.

I ran across this site in another thread somewhere here and thought it looked really neat… with a pricetag to match: http://www.freezeframeit.com/
