Dry the wedding bridal bouquet yourself

You can decide to dry the bridal bouquet yourself. Which obviously is also the most budget-friendly option. However, not all flowers are suitable to dry. Make sure you let yourself be informed by your florist when you decide to dry the flowers yourself. Start the drying process as fast as possible, but absolutely before five days after the wedding to make sure the flowers still have their original beauty. Select a calm, dry and dark spot where you can hang the bouquet upside down. When the flowers are fully dried you can spray the bouquet with hairspray to add a protective coating.


No time or just don't feel like drying the bouquet yourself? You can also have the bouquet dried professionally, which is called preparation. Besides this another option is to have the bouquet freeze-dried, which lets the flowers preserve their colors even longer. Another method of preparation is by using a gel-coating. This is done with so-called sillica-gel. The latter option is also something you can do yourself at home. The gel can be purchased at most home improvement or hobby stores. Dip the bouquet in the gel and let it dry for a while.

Whatever your choose, do realize that despite the various preparation methods in existence, your bouquet will never again be as beautiful as on the day itself. So make sure you have your wedding photographer take as many beautiful photos of the bouquet as you can get. To enjoy it even after the wedding, you could decide to have an enlarged photo printed on canvas, beautiful and timeless!
