Bouquet flower preservation

I’ve been looking on Etsy to get my bouquet preserved, ideally I’d like it in a frame and then maybe some coasters. I’m hoping to find something in Canada but I couldn’t find too many shops that to do this.

Seems like such a waste to think about all the florals I will have left over 🥺 I wish I could keep them all!
Do you know of a company that preserves florals ?
What are you doing with your florals after your wedding?

    Oh wow, yeah, that’s a lot of hours away. Dang! 😂
    Maybe you have to do a DIY project on your own. Haha!

    These were my ideas. Maybe you dry them out and do something like this. Seems very lovely to get to complete it on your own too, once your vehicle has space for some.
    And you can also keep them cold, ice and change the water everyday if you want to keep them alive for a bit. 😂😂😂😂Bouquet flower preservation 1

    That’s a good idea! I wish I didn’t live 10 hours away from my venue! I’ll see how much room I have in our vehicle to bring some home with us! I’m no gardener I know nothing about flowers so I’m nervous I’m going to ruin them but I’ve talked to a few ladies on Etsy to do resin coasters and a shadow box! It’s so expensive and not something I included in our budget lol so we will see what happens! But I’d really like to save them and get them preserved somehow!

    I kept on to my floral as long as I could as a decor in my home. Haha. They are all dried up now and in a vase. Hahahaha! But the good thing is, I did not buy a lot and was happy that I did not stress on if I spent a lot on it.


    I was thinking to preserve them as well, but with all the busyness after our wedding. It went out of my mind. Haha. I love the ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest with it in the frame with the invite and such. However, because I did not have my invite printed, I did not think too much into it also.
    Did you decide on a plan yet?

    Where are you located? I'm in Alberta and I'm having my flowers preserved in an old window frame! She also does floating frames and shadow boxes and has an option to add your invitiation.

    This is her website if you want to check it out Smiley smile

    There is a resin sand you can get to preserve the flowers. You may want to look up on youtube on how to do so. It is a process which will take time to do and to be careful not to lose any petals or its shape.

    I'd look for anyone local to you who works with Resin. If you press the flowers yourself I'm sure anyone who works with resin could create coasters!

    I think I’m just going to have a piece of art made (painting or sketch) to remember them - an old friend from high school does really nice work bouquet prints

    I don't recall what my florist said for the eucalyptus but I know I have some of that in mine! I only for sure roses dry nicely I have a rose from a couple years ago still perfect in shape that I dried!

    Yes I’ll check there thanks!!
    I live in BC but my wedding is in Alberta, so I’m not sure if it’s easier to just drop the flowers off in Alberta (if I’m able to find someone there) on my way back to BC

    I agree with Carmel, check your local FB groups. Can't remember if you were AB based, or BC based, but if AB, I know I see a lot of people offer this service.

    Are you part of your local wedding Facebook group? I'd ask there. I know in mine this comes up a lot and there tried and true options.

    My florist said that I can dry most of the flowers out so I'll be hang drying them and also I could flatten them in a book... she told me unfortunately some items won't preserve well but roses (which I'll have roses) will preserve nicely..


    I have yet to find another option as I'd love to put it in a shadow box so if I find a shop that does it I'll send it your way!
