The wedding day goes past too fast, and naturally, you would like to relive the best wedding moments. Thanks to the photos and wedding video, you can dwell in the memories of the wedding day. But if you want to preserve not only memories and feelings, wedding bouquet preservation is a nice option.

A bouquet toss tradition

It’s better not to follow one of the most popular wedding traditions in the world – a bouquet toss tradition – if you want to preserve your wedding bouquet. First of all, you lose your original wedding bouquet. Secondly, it will lose its original form. However, if you want to delight your girlfriends, ask your florist to make an identical bouquet (or a different one, as you like) and use it for throwing.

When ordering a bouquet, tell your florist that you would like to preserve your wedding bouquet after. A professional florist will give you helpful advice on how to preserve and treat flowers and plants used in your wedding bouquet to make it durable on the wedding day and easier to preserve after the wedding.


How to preserve and dry the wedding bouquet

You may want to preserve every little petal. But the truth is that not every little detail will remain as it is. While drying the bouquet, some petals will fall out. At the same time, drying is the easiest way to retain the bouquet's original form. There is no need for either investment or special skills. The thing to remember – the bouquet shrinks while moisture evaporates, and the gorgeous colours of flowers fade out. But don’t worry, the shape of the bouquet will remain.

Before putting your wedding bouquet for drying, release it from leaves and flowers which is going to fall off or decay already. Wrap the stems with tape or a rubber band to ensure the composition will remain in its original form while drying. The shape will be maintained if hanging the bouquet upside down in a dark and dry place. Drying can take two weeks up to a month, depending on the plants.


Put the dried bouquet in a carton or wooden box, thus protecting it from dust and wet. If you want a more aesthetic solution, a glass box will be a fantastic choice.

Individual flower drying

Maybe your wish is to preserve only individual flowers? Remember a nice trick from childhood when flowers were pressed between the pages of heavy books? Choose the flowers and dry them in this easy and playful way. To avoid spoiling or dirtying the book, put paper sheets between the pages. Afterwards, you can even create your artwork, putting the composition of dried flowers in the frame.
