I dont get it either its just something that will take up too much space in my home. Im keeping my garter but thats small and much more scentimental since I made it myself.

I have mine in a giant glass jar along with some other wedding keepsakes sitting on our hearth(my flowers were fake though).  Just a different form of shadow box really, but I love looking at the memories.

Cuase it’s pretty!!  I didnt preserve mine (cause I accidentally left it at the venue) and I dont think that most people do cause it’s pretty expensive, but here’s a great way to have it displayed: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-preserved-bouquet

I wish I saved mine… they were so pretty and I did not get to enjoy them long enough. We went on our honeymoon the next day so I let my mom take it and let it brighten up her house for a week.

I have no clue what I would have done with it, but it was so pretty and 5 hours with it wasn’t enough.

I used fake flowers and repurposed it as a vase of flowers in my home, and placed seveal wedding photos around it. 

It’s pretty. 🙂

I dont get it either. I hate nik nacks, which IMO that what it would be if I saved it. So I saved some petals and dried them and made them into jewlery I can wear anytime. Still sentimental and reminds me of our day but more practical….for me.

Mine is made of paper… I made it myself. I love it and I kind of what to keep it, but it seems like a silly thing to keep at the same time. I’ll probably keep it until I can stand to get rid of it lol.

I had mine preserved and had a wedding photo and my invitation in it. It’s like a shadow box of anything important, it makes me smile when I walk buy it and it’s beautiful too.

@superh2ogirl:  But to answer your question, I want to preserve mine because it’s another keepsake from the wedding and I would diplay it in a shadow box on top of the fireplace.

My bouquet will be partially living!  I’m planting the succulents from it in a dish to keep in our house 🙂  The petals will be dried and turned into beads (there’s a couple DIY tutorials on this) and I’ll make them into jewelry.
