A silk bouquet is a great way to keep the memories forever. My family made silk flower arrangements for my great grandmother’s funeral and they all have them in their homes now. Everytime I see them, I see grandma so I think that’s a lovely idea for you.
Your idea is SO AWESOME that I just have to attach a photo from your link 🙂
Thank you for including the photos, they look amazing in those boxes!
Your story is very lovely, I appreciate you sharing that with us. It’s such a sentimental way to honor your brother. He is very lucky to have a wonderful family that remembers him every year. What a heartwarming way to include him in your wedding 🙂

You totally should! They are the best. Here’s my full bouquet, sitting in a tree lol. We kept the kiwi succulents at the bottom.

My parents had my flowers pressed and framed as a wedding gift for me. I was so impressed with how they came out!

That’s really beautiful… I love the paperweight and candle ideas too.

We’re getting married in Mexico and I won’t be able to take them back with me, so I plan on putting them in a vase in our room after we get married, then tossing them in the ocean with a wish on our last day.

So- I LOVED the ideas here, espcially the beautiful paperweights from the company in the UK, but those are pretty expensive, and in the UK. I’m not a fan necessarily of the dried flower things since it’s pretty humid here. I decided, hey- I’m crafty, I can embed things in resin! I watched this video-
I think we will have many paperweights.

I also had a silk bouquet, and mine sits as a cetnerpiece on our kitchen table – in the vase that it was in at our reception. I know each of my girls (2) have theirs in a vase on display at their house, too!
That was one reason to go silk, so I could have it forever.
