I hung mine upside down in our spare closet and it’s in pretty good shape, especially since we have moved twice (once out of state) since the wedding! Eventually I will put it in a shadowbox or something to make sure it stays extra safe! Something like this..

I plan to do the same with my bouquet.

I’m dropping it off day after the wedding to a florist that specializes in flower preservation.  When done, they’ll be putting it in a shadow box for me.

Pretty bouquet BTW!

I dried mine and my husband’s boutonnière and have it in a shadow box! It looks gorgeous and it’s a great memory to look back on.

I dried mine and had it made into a candle. I thought it was a subtle way to preserve it.

With my engagement party corsage I had it made into a rosary.

I’m planning on having a piece of artwork made with mine. It’s a local artist, but it’ll be nice to hang and not have to worry about ruining it really.

I had some pressed into this plate (salt marsh pottery) and some made into jewelry (forever in time). I love the shadow boxes- I tried to dry some flowers, but it didn’t work well.

Mine had succulents, so I just put them in a flower pot.  The shape changes pretty significantly as they grow, but I can be confident that my bouqet will never die.  I tried rooting the waxflowers but had no luck.  It’s possible you could root your rose if you were very lucky – it’s not an easy thing to do.  If that green/white on the bottom is ivy, you should definitely try planting that if you don’t mind taking your bouquet apart.

I threw it away. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my bouquet!  But I’d much rather enjoy the pictures of it while fresh than have something else collecting dust in the house.  My mom still has the succulents from it though 😀

All of these are great ideas!  I want to save mine 🙂
