Wedding Bouquet Preservation

Wedding bouquet preservation may not be the first concern you have when planning your event. However, once your special day is over, you want to be able to remember it for the rest of your life and keep mementos to show your children and grandchildren in future.
Photographs and video are all very well, but it’s often the tangible items that are the most evocative, particularly the wedding dress and the flowers.
In order to keep your bridal bouquets for many years, a certain amount of thought and planning is required. The process of preservation needs to start while the flowers are still fresh, ideally no more than a day or two after your wedding.
The object of preservation is to dry the flowers while keeping as much of the original shape and colour of the bouquet as possible. If you’re on a tight budget and doing it yourself, then it’s more effective to separate out the flowers, hang them individually to dry in a ventilated area out of sunlight for a week or more, and then re-tie them. This will minimise the risk of moisture causing mildew or rot.
Professional methods will give a much more pleasing effect. These can range from freeze drying to the use of silica gel. If keeping your floral arrangements is important to you after your wedding, you should make sure you include wedding bouquet preservation in your budget planner. Certain floral arrangements are easier to preserve than others, so talk to us about your ideas for your wedding flowers; we’ll be happy to advise on how to achieve the look that you want for your special day, while allowing for the possibility of having the flowers preserved for years to come.
