Top Things You Can Do with the Bouquet After the Wedding
Your wedding is bound to be one of the most amazing days of your entire life – right? So, it’s completely natural if you want to keep every single keepsake and memory alive – especially your bridal bouquet, such a delicate and beautiful part of the entire Big Day.
What are some of the things you can do with your wedding bouquet after the wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Hang it to dry. Drying your bouquet upside down will help you keep it alive for much longer – it can last for years, or even decades. Once dried out, you also have the option of placing the bouquet in an air-tight container (a preservationist can probably do this for you the best way possible, making sure the shape and the beauty of the bouquet are not affected in this process).
- Dip it in melted wax. Another method you can use to preserve your Virginia bridal bouquet is by dipping it for a very brief moment in melted paraffin. Our advice is to only use this method if you feel you have practiced a lot with other, much less sentimental blooms – it’s really important not to ruin your actual bridal bouquet doing this!
- Have it pressed. Pressing flowers is an easy way of preserving your bridal bouquet. Once pressed, you can turn them into a beautiful piece of décor by having them framed (with a glass on top). Imagine how pretty this sentimental item would look in your living room or bedroom!
- Have it professionally preserved. Thanks to modern technology, your bouquet can now be perfectly preserved in a piece that will always remind you of the amazingness of your wedding day. For instance, many brides choose to have their bouquets transformed in gorgeous glass globes, which they can then display anywhere in their homes.
