I had succulents in my bouquet so replanted those. The rest of the bouquet is in a closet but is probably going to be trash.
Hubby’s boutineer is currently dried and hung on our fridge as a magnet. But I didn’t do anything special for that. My mom thought it was funny that the boutineer was affixed to his tux with a magnet rather than a pin so stuck it on the fridge.

I forgot it in the water bucket that we used to prop open a door as we loaded our things into the car at the venue.

Not sure haven’t seen it since the wedding. My parents probably have it.

Mine is all dried out and sitting in a vase in my living room. I will probably toss it soon.

Mine was made out of sola wood flowers, pine cones, dried grasses, feathers, and juniper boughs, so I didn’t need to dry it. It is sitting in a vase on our mantle. It has been there for a year, when we move it will probably get tossed.

naomi01 : I stuck mine in a vase until it died. I tried rooting the waxflowers but wasn’t lucky there. However I did make sure to have succulents in my bouquet and planted those. They’re still alive and well. My main flowers were gerberas and not particularly preservable… they barely made it through the wedding day!

I started preserving mine and had every intention of making a shadowbox….and got lazy
Just retrieved one of these containers from my basement. I used silica gel…
Since it’s nearing the holidays, I think I want to make these ornaments. Maybe I’ll go to Michaels for supplies later LOL

I pulled a few of the best flowers off the bouquet and placed them in this. It was sat in the spare room for a few months beforehand to allow it to all dry out

We took the succulents out of it and planted them. the rest was put in vases and given to family members to enjoy until they died…
I wish I had thought that through a bit more. We had them at my parents house the day after the wedding, and we flew out for our honeymoon the following day. By the time we got back from the honeymoon they were brown. Whoops. At least we got the succulents lol

I kept it in a vase at home for a couple of days. Once the flowers died I tossed them out. I result don’t like clutter at home.

hermionepadme : thanks! Packing up to move house forced me to massacre the original bouquet. I would have taken the lot if I could have packed it nicely

I ordered clay flowers, so after the wedding I will just put them in a vase and clean them every month or so 🙂

I couldn’t decide what to do with it and it died so I threw it away.

I actually think I left mine in the pub we had our reception in as I don’t recall ever having it again after a quick photo with me and my husband and the set up room.
