Most brides have a very clear image of the bouquet they will carry down the aisle, but the plan for that bouquet after the wedding isn’t always so clear.
Taking your flowers to be preserved or hanging the bouquet upside down in a dark closet is a good start. Once the bouquet is dried it can be placed in a shadow box with your invitation and other wedding keepsakes or you can place the bouquet under a simple glass dome to display in your home. If your bouquet isn’t one that will keep its beauty by drying, try taking some of the petals from the bouquet and putting them in a glass ball ornament to hang on your Christmas tree.
