That’s a great idea. Any idea how much that typically costs? I think generally brides don’t toss their ceremony bouquet though. Usually they have a much small less fancy throw away/ toss bouquet made.

I considered it, but I was so exhausted at the end of the day, I left mine at the reception.  LOL.

i’m using real touch flowers for my bouquet so that way I can keep it without worrying about it wilting away in days. How much does it cost to preserve the flowers?

I feel the same way – I couldn’t imagine throwing something like that away, so to speak.  I plan to have a smaller bouquet for the reception, either to toss or to present to someone (probably FI’s grandmother who gave us her ring to use for my e-ring).

I am definitely planning on having my bouquet preserved if the budget allows for it.  I think it’s a couple hundred bucks at least, depending on the kind of framing/arrangement all that stuff.

I love that middle one! How beautiful!!

That said, I’m not sure I’d display it or have a place for that to go in my house…

toss bouquest are usually much smaller and less expensive than your bouquet – no one actually throws the one you carry.

Oooh. I’m favoriting this topic so I can look into it more when I come a bit closer to our actual wedding date. Love the idea!

My mom preserved hers and saved it in 1970.  I would love to save mine the same way.

My mother preserved her bouquet from her second wedding, as well as mine, and included it in a shadow box with a letter to me and a picture of us on that day. I’m so glad she did, it’s something I’ll always have with me from that day
