Here is the shadowbox that I made with wedding memorbilia. I purchased the shadowbox at Michaels with the 40% off coupon. I believe it is either 16×20 or 18×24… Not 100% sure. I didn’t even know about preserving a bouquet until after my wedding.. 🙁 But heard it is super expensive! Here is the finished product!

chevaldame : I think it is a great idea and fits us as a couple the best. No offense to any of the other brides that have posted on here but saving the whole bouqet is too much for me. And not something I would want taking up a bunch of room in my house. I would like a small momento like that ornament that I can take out and remember during the holiday. But saving every little thing.. no. There is a reason we are paying so much for photography! Which is saying a lot becuase I have very pack rat-esque tendancies!

I dont have a pic of mine but I dried my flowers and my husband and I arranged them in the shape of a heart and put them in a shadowbox. We dont have enough roses so once he buys me more we can complete it. 🙂

mrsblanco827 : It takes some advance planning as you need to send while flowers are fresh. They freeze dry the flowers to keep the color. I used http://forever-flowers.com/ .

dfutureNP : My bouquet (which was a brooch bouquet, so not flowers or anything) fits inside a glass football display case that you can buy from any craft store. I got mine from Michael’s. I keep it on a bookshelf in our dining room. It’s a great conversation piece!
