I literally only touched mine when I walked down the aisle and for a few pics. While it was gorgeous – it was so hot and humid out that it was losing petals at the alter. Someone else must have brought it from the venue because I saw it the next day at the ‘day after’ barbeque. It wasn’t looking so good. It got thrown out from there.

@stephinPA, the idea of the jewelry is awesome! I might have to steal it!
My aunt will take my bouquet to my grandma’s grave, since she recently passed away.
And the centerpieces and BM’s bouquets will be taken to a Hospice.

A week afterwards I composted my bouquet so it will return next year to nourish my family’s garden.
I love the idea of placing your bouquet on a relative’s grave. That is a beautiful gesture.

I stuck mine in a vase on our mantel — ribbon, pins and all. About a week or 10 days later, it was wilted and moldy (seriously), so I threw it out. I figure: I have the photos to remind me how beautiful it once was!
