What have/are all you ladies doing with your bouquets after the wedding. Mine is just sitting out on my porch and I have been trying to think of something I could do with it. I’m not really into dried flowers, and that seems to be the only thing I can think of.
So I was wondering what you ladies have done with your bouquets or what you are planning on doing with them?
I was also thinking maybe pressing some of the flowers and using them in a wedding scrapbook.

After the wedding I am planning on getting mine preserved. But I am the sentimental type like that. lol. I know alot of people who just put them in a vase until they die like normal bouquets.

I’ve heard of people placing them on the grave of a loved one as a way of honoring them.

@kfricke89:what are they doing to preserve it? I am super sentimental as well! Does it look like dried flowers when they preserve it, or can they make it to look the same and just last forever, mainly color wise? I don’t like dried flowers because I hate that the flowers don’t have their beautiful colors as much.

I will not be keeping the bouquet – I’m happy with the pictures. I am sentimental too, but I wonder if it will become unmanageable (like drying out and cracking) after awhile.

This is why I decided to go with the brooch bouquet idea. Granted, I LOVE fresh flowers and the bouquets always look gorgeous!!! But I like the idea of having something forever, and they just look so unique (and I feel like being crafty!)

I’d think that preserving flowers would be the same as preserving anything, I’m sure you’d have to be very careful with them and I can’t imagine you’d be taking it out to “play with it” that often anyways.

I wanted to press the flowers and turn it into art. But then I forgot my bouquet at my venue, oh well.

I don’t like dried flowers, but I saw some amazing flower preservation in a frame, and just had to do it.

Mine was pretty much destroyed by the end of the night, but even if it hadn’t been, I reallllllly don’t like the way dried flowers look, so I still would have tossed it out. It will live on in our gorgeous pro pics!

By the time we returned from our honeymoon it was dead so I just tossed it in the trash. I honestly didn’t know what I was going to do with it so I wasn’t too upset.

I gave mine to my new sister-in-law at the end of our reception. I am sure she threw it away when it started to die, but I wasn’t going to preserve it, and I liked the idea of gifting it to my new sister. :o)

I had not thought about what I am going to do with it at all, thanks for pasting this to get me thinking about it! I am not getting married until next summer but it seems like there are so many little details that I have not night not of thought of if it were not for the bees. Thanks so much!
