When most people think of preserving their wedding flowers, the first image that comes to mind is a freeze-dried bouquet in a shadow box. That’s an option, for sure, but pressing your flowers in something more similar to what you’d see in an herbarium is an incredibly alternative.
A few weeks ago when I first announced a pressed flower service, Floral Memories, for wedding clients, I mentioned that I had flowers from Laura & Andrew’s drying in my office. Well… they’re dry enough to mount!
Gorgeous, right? I press and dry one of each type of flower and greenery from your wedding and artfully arrange it in a modern frame with a copy of your invitation (or print of your choice). This beautiful memory of your wedding will last longer than a freeze dried bouquet and fit with more décor styles than a shadow box.
As I gaze back at Laura’s stunning bouquet, I know these framed pressed florals are not a substitution for what she carried down the aisle. They’re another way to remember the wedding through colors, motion, moments, and beauty-filled joy.
Honestly, and I know I’ve said this before, I wish I had thought of this for my own wedding.
You can add this onto the handcrafted floral design of your wedding for $150! As pressing and drying times vary, I can promise to have your framed floral art available eight weeks after your wedding.
I’m also offering a special through the end of the year: If you book your wedding with me by Dec 31, 2018, you can ask for this pressed flower service completely free as my gift to you.
Let’s make these gorgeous framed florals the trend in wedding memories.
