Preserving Your Wedding Flowers


We all know that the bride is the star of the show.  But how many of us stop to think of what happens after the wedding day is over?  If you’re like me, you love the flowers; the look of them, the smell of them, and the way that they transform a space from nothing to something so easily.  But, we pay a pretty penny for these wonderful works of nature; yet they don’t last forever, no matter how hard we try.

Well, there just may be a solution after all.  I literally stumbled upon Freeze Frame while researching for a gift basket.  I was hooked from the beginning!  To be able to send your flowers to them, have them preserved, and turned into necklaces, bracelets, rosaries, men’s jewelry, and more is totally amazing!  If you're anything like me, you’d have the entire bouquet framed and hanging on the wall, as it’s often a masterpiece all on its own.  Who wouldn’t want to keep the whole thing?

Many of us keep with tradition and exchange gifts during the rehearsal dinner.  Who’s to say we can’t break tradition and give a small token after the wedding to your bridal party that says “Thanks for being in my wedding” by preserving the bridesmaids bouquets or groomsmen boutonnières.  Bridal fashion has improved over the years but I’m sure that a piece of jewelry will be a welcomed addition to their wardrobe and one that would definitely be used again!  Let’s face it, how many times have you re-worn your bridesmaids dress?  If you're looking to give your bridal party something a little different to keep after the wedding, this would be a great gift that any member of the bridal party would surely love and appreciate.

This is certainly one way to keep your flowers long after the wedding is over!

  2. Great topic! I actually dried a few of the flowers from my bouquet after I got married and have them saved in a shadow box with my invite and a few other things. Love how it turned out! :)
