I wasn’t sure what to do with my bouquet, and since we had a destination wedding I couldn’t just bring it home myself and dry it. I considered having the whole thing preserved by someone in Florida but ended up going in a different direction.
Every since I was little I remember my mom having this tiny keepsake box with part of her dried bouquet in it. I decided to do the same thing and wanted to share…I love it so much!!!

Very cute!!! I took mine & pressed them for just a week with books on top of them, and then put them inside a frame I bought @ Hobby Lobby in a cute design!!! They’re still being pressed (inside the frame) & hopefully some of the color will still be there years from now! I love your idea. Sounds like something that can be passed on for years.

How wonderful! When I was in high school, I kept all my coursages from formals in 1 box as well as 1 bud from each bouquet I received (had the same 1 bf all through high school). I really wish I would have done that with the flowers I’ve received from my fiance, but maybe I’ll start over with the wedding. I love the box you chose!

Thanks girls!! I really love it even though it’s a tiny piece of my bouquet. Lees, I did the same thing with my petals. Some turned a really nasty brown but mostly they came out great. I also saved a few of the buds and ended up putting two in there.
