My wedding bouquet and what to do with it afterwards

I love love loved my bouquet.

It really was the most exceptional bouquet I have ever seen. I didn’t think it would be more perfect but mine and the bridesmaids were beyond gorgeous! I wanted a wildflower look full of my favourite flowers.

This picture was taken 3 days after the wedding and still look amazing.

It contains

    Wax flowers
    Blue delphiniums
    Wax flower

They looked and smelled amazing!

Freesias just have the purest happiest scent plus they are my mother and mother in laws favourite flower so they were personal as well.

I honestly had no idea what to do with afterwards I hadn’t thought about keeping them. When our guests were leaving my friend Nina suggested I press them, such a good idea and I hadn’t really thought about it. But I saw some cool glass frames in Aldi I bought them.

I made sure my flowers were dry and then I pressed them. I used the frames and added some weight on top. I also put a little sachet of silica packets that come with everything to help dry out any moisture trapped in there. One of the flowers did get a bit mouldy so I took it out and added an extra packet of silica to my frame.

Some of the flowers faded and some came out beautifully. I have had them framed for two years now and I love them.

It’s our anniversary in a few days so I thought I would share them with you.
