Bridal bouquets and what to do with them after the wedding

Your bridal bouquet is more than just an accessory – it’s part of your wedding look and, in the end, it’s part of what is supposed to be the most beautiful day of your life. Your wedding bouquet will bring together dreams, hopes, love, laughter, tears of emotion and a lot of meaningfulness.

What can you do with the bouquet once the wedding is over? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Dry it. Hanging your bouquet upside down and drying it is one of the easiest things you can do to preserve this beauty. Be careful, though – this method does not necessarily guarantee your bouquet will live forever if you don’t handle it very carefully when it’s all dried out.

·       Press it. This is something you may have done with many other flowers, and it’s a method that’s been around for quite some time. If you want to make sure your pressed bouquet will survive the sands of time, have it framed and covered with glass once it’s pressed. This would make for a wonderful home décor item – so sentimental and beautiful!

·       Preserve it using wax. This method is a bit tricky, so it’s recommended that you test it out with other, less meaningful flowers first. To preserve the bouquet using wax, you should melt some paraffin in a saucepan, dip the flowers in it, and then rapidly pull them out. Again, this is a very tricky method, so you should definitely practice with other flowers first.

·       Have it professionally preserved. There are services that will preserve your bouquet, and there are different methods to do this. Some preserve their bouquets using silica gel, others preserve their bouquet in globes – which, same as the framed version described above, would make for an amazing piece of home décor. These are among the most expensive bridal bouquet preservation methods, but, as you will see, every penny will be worth it – your bouquet will stay frozen in time, intact, just as pretty as it was on the day you walked down the aisle holding it.
