Flowers Wedding

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

    Freesias
    Dahlias
    Wax flowers
    Dahlias
    Blue delphiniums
    Scabias
    Wax flower
    Veronica
    Tanacetum
    Clematis
    crocosmia

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.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
