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.

Sapphires:  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.

Sapphires:  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.

FutureDrAtkins:  I love this idea I really wanted this too but caved to convention.  Click a pic and post would love to see it.

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