Preserving Wedding Bouquets: 101

Plan Ahead

Preserving your wedding bouquet all starts with planning ahead. Don’t wait until the last minute. It’s important to make steps to preserve your flowers ahead of time. This will ensure that everyone is on the same page. Planning ahead also means putting together an outline specifically for the bouquet, if you want it preserved correctly. You can give this outline to your wedding planner, maid of honor, or other family member that’s helping out.

The outline for your bouquet should consists of a timeline of where and what the flowers should be used for. The timeline should start from the moment you receive your bouquet until the end of reception. If the flowers will be changing hands, try to include the names of the person who is going to handling them during that time. This will help you keep track of your bouquet every step of the way.

During your planning stages, you should also decided on how you’re going to preserve your bouquet. There are many methods to choose from. This will help you quickly get your flowers into the preserving process to ensure your flowers will last forever. We will cover these options in our next post.

Keep Them Fresh

After you’ve decided to preserve, do everything you can to keep your bouquet fresh. After all, flowers are delicate. Furthermore, your blooms might not be the freshest cuts. They could be several days to weeks old by the time your wedding happens. Keep this in mind. This also means not using your primary bouquet during the toss. Yeah, it’s a tradition, but you should opt for using a bride’s maids bouquet as a replacement to keep yours from getting damaged.
