Chicago Florist Explains How to Preserve Your Wedding Bouquet, Chicago, Illinois

There’s no better way to remember the fun and excitement of your wedding day than by preserving your bouquet. Gratitude-Heart-Garden, Chicago’s top choice for wedding flowers, has a quick guide on how to preserve the floral arrangements from your big day so you can enjoy them forever.

  • Treat Your Wedding Bouquet Carefully: The first step toward preserving your flowers happens on the day of your wedding. As fun as the bouquet toss is, it increases the risk that your flowers will be damaged in a tussle. Consider throwing a bridesmaid’s bouquet so your flowers are kept in beautiful condition.
  • Chicago-IL-wedding-bouquetDry Your Flowers: To preserve your wedding bouquet, you need to fully dry the flowers. You can air dry them, but this will result in much duller colors. For vibrant flowers, put the bouquet in a box filled with silica gel and let it rest for two weeks. Then dust the silica off your flowers for a perfectly preserved bouquet!
  • Go With A Professional: If you’re not big on DIY projects or don’t want to trust the fate of your wedding flowers to your own hand, there are lots of professional florists who can press or freeze-dry your bouquet. If you opt for professional preservation, shop around and ask for quotes.
  • Frame Your Bouquet: Once you have dried your wedding bouquet, you need to decide how to display it. While you could put it in a vase like any other dried flower arrangement, a shadow box offers far more protection. You can place the bouquet, your garter, and any other wedding trinkets inside the shadow box and hang it on a wall, safe and sound.

Preserving your wedding bouquet is a wonderful way to hold on to your joyous day. To learn how Gratitude-Heart-Garden can help you find the perfect floral arrangement for your wedding in Chicago, IL, visit their website or call (773) 477-7475.
