My husband and I were married abroad in Puerto Rico and then left immediately from our destination for our honeymoon. Along with everythng else I brought my bouquet along on the journey. The staff of our suite placed my flowers in a vase on our nightstand so every morning and evening during our honeymoon adventure I saw my lovely flowers, enjoyed them, and remembered our beautiful wedding day.
On the last night of our honeymoon, my husband and I went up to a private balcony overlooking the Carribbean sea, talked about our marriage and the life we wished for together under the stars, then took the bouquet together and tossed it into the sea. It was an amazing moment.
So I was wondering after seeing such gorgeous flowers what you did with your bouquet after the big day??

That is an awesome thing to do with your bouquet. I kept a few flowers from mine and dried them. Then, right around our one year anniversary, we scattered them where we got engaged. It was a nice moment.

I tossed the bouquet and then don’t know what happened to it lol; everyone was horrified I didn’t want to keep it and dry it, but I was like ‘why do I want a load of dead/dried flowers?!’. What you did sounds lovely though 🙂

Mine went on my dearly missed grandfather’s grave. He was like a father to me and sorely missed at our wedding xxx

That is such an amazing idea!! I’m having a seashell bouquet so I will be keeping it. I love the idea of putting in on our night stand in our bedroom!

I had a brooch bouquet that I now keep out on display in our dining room. It fit perfectly in a football collector’s case from the craft store, and the mirrored background makes it EVEN more blingy!! It’s a great conversation piece 🙂

I tossed mine in the bouquet toss. I hadn’t really planned on doing one, but I didn’t know what else to do with my bouquet. My 9 year old neice caught it!?

Mine is currently in the process of being preserved. I love flowers and my bouquet was stunning so I knew I wanted to keep it. I am very excited to see how it comes out!

I preserved some of the flowers and made a shadow box with it and other elements of the wedding. It hangs on my wall to “lady land” which is my office.

I made a shadow box of our wedding day memorobillia. I was going to put them in the shadow box (they were dried), but they would’ve taken up so much room and I really didn’t want any scatters of flowers in the box becasue I didn’t dry them flat and would’ve had to have them semi squished in there… so I took the ribbon, pearls, and crystal embellishments that were wrapped around my bouquet off the stems and super glued them into the shadow box as a remembrance of my bouquet. Then I tossed the flowers. I thought about keeping them in a vase, but the shadow box is such a great remembrance of the day without them that I didn’t feel the need to keep those too.
Here’s a pic of it. The frame looks huge but it’s really just a 16×20 frame.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dried my bouquet and now it’s sitting in a vase in my living room.
