PLANNING AHEAD

The key to getting the most beautiful bouquet possible is to "Pre-Plan."

Meet with me before your wedding so you can see all the options available and in all price ranges.

If your going on your honeymoon, see who will be available to drop off your bouquet. If you are needing to have your bouquet picked up, make arrangements ahead of time.

 

THE DAY OF THE WEDDING

"Preserving the moments that Matter!"

Try not to lay down your bouquet. It will smash your flowers and I may not be able to use damaged ones. Have a vase handy with water.

If you think you would like to include the boutonniere into the keepsake, have your florist make another one just for the preservation.

Keep the bouquet in water as much as possible.

 

AFTER THE WEDDING TO DROP OFF

Never freeze your bouquet.

Keep in water in a cool place.

If in a bouquet holder, make sure the foam is wet.

Bring any centerpieces that have similar flowers from your bouquet in case your bouquet has some wilting or damaged flowers.

 

FLOWERS

I can preserve any flower and foliage including succulents! The only things that do not preserve well are hypericum berries, as they turn into raisins during the preservation process.

 

Here’s a helpful list of flowers that preserve exceptionally well. Don’t worry if your flowers are not on this list.  Others still turn out great!

    ~Roses

    ~Ranunculus

    ~Carnation   

    ~Sunflowers

    ~Callalily

    ~Peonies

    ~Gerber Daisies  

    ~Hydrangea

   

I hear all the time "I wish I would have known about this process!"
