ohhmaigosh:  Not unique, but I gave mine to my grandmother. I’m not a fan of the appearance of preserved bouquets, pot pourri etc. It’s not something I would want to display in my home.

I do like the Christmas decoration with a shredded invitation though.

That’s so cute! My dad removed all the succulents from my bouquet and re-potted them. I have one of them and he kept the rest. We threw the dried bouquet away.

When we flew home after our wedding, I last saw my bouquet in a vase on my IL’s mantel..

I truthfully have no idea. I didn’t care to keep it.. I find it strange to keep dead flowers around, no matter what their sentiment.

I think someone probably took it home.. It was really pretty.

I haven’t been a bride but I liked what one of my friends did. She had all these glass beads on the tables so she took a bunch of them home and bought a big vase. She put the beads at the bottom and pulled the roses from the bouquet to create the second layer. 4 years later it still looks really nice.

about 3 days after we got married DH and I  went to the the gazebo where our ceremony was at and threw it in the ocean and made a wish. I coudln’t bring it back, so it seems symbolic.

I’m no help at all since I had a Sola Flower bouquet – I just put it in a small glass vase and it’s displayed in our bedroom for now. I think the glass ornament is pretty cool, though! If I had had fresh flowers, I would have looked into getting them professionally preserved or pressed so they kept their color better.

I love both of those ornament ideas!  I might have to steal them 🙂

Mine is still hanging in our guest bedroom closet. We got married a year ago and I just hung it to let it dry out since I didn’t know what to do with it. It’s still there – kind of creepy aha 😉

I dried mine and it’s been on display for nearly a year. The trouble is, it’s actually a bit squished (the only cupboard I had to dry it in wasn’t quite big enough) and dusty. It’s not actually the prettiest thing to look at, and I should really throw it away, but I can’t quite bring myself to do it. Maybe after our first anniversary.

I forgot mine at the venue/hotel when we were leaving the next day.

Before we leave on our honeymoon, Fiance & I are going to bring all our centerpieces to a nursing home…I plan to go ahead and do this with the flowers from my bouquet (and any bridesmaids bouquets that get left behind) as well. I just haven’t decided yet if I will deconstruct the bouquet and put the flowers in a vase or leave the bouquet wrapped.

I gave my bouquet to the small bridesmaid child who also played her violin for is during the cake cutting.
