- Wedding: May 2011
i’m hoping to get a good picture of it and blow that up on canvas. the real thing will go in the garbage.
I woud like to have it preserved… I really like the way dried flowers look. I dried the flowers of a bridesmaid bouquet from last year and have it displayed in a vase. I’ll probably do the same with my bouquet!!
We left on our honeymoon right away, so I gave my bouquet to my mom to have at her house until the flowers died. Then it got tossed.
I let mine dry up and have it sitting in my curio cabinet with the rest of my wedding stuff (guestbook, garter, candles, etc.)
My daughter is making mine with real touch flowers, so after the wedding, I will display it in our our home; probably with a framed picture of us. I already have the container for it.
I want to throw the bouquet and then I don’t have to worry about it!
But we’re taking pictures the day after. I’m probably giving them to my mom (if she isn’t already overrun with centerpieces!).
Since I am having a bead bouquet, I have been looking for a vase for my mantle for it.
I voted for storing it in a shoebox in the closet but I plan on drying it and displaying it in a vase or something. I still have one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets from a wedding I was in 7 years ago. I have also dried roses from every set of flowers Fiance has ever sent me. Those I plan to put into a little bag and sew it underneath my dress.
I chose other, because my sister had hers preserved in an Air tight container and the air in the box is some sort of preserving chemical its really pretty its a marble bottom with a glass dome over it and they look only slightly darker then when she got married 6 years ago, so i’m going to do the same… I’ll get the lady’s info and edit this post
my mil dried it for me while i was on our honeymoon, so it’s in a vase. some of the flowers didn’t hold up so well, so might get tossed eventually…
There’s an organzation in my town that will pick up your flowers and deliver them to nursing homes & hospitals. That’s probably what I’ll do with all of them. While it does make me feel good, I also get a reciept for my taxes as a donation.
I never save anything but I actually have mine, hanging in a back closet- I dried it. Darling Husband made it, so I guess I felt attached.
