How to Make Your Bouquet Last Forever

We love the smell of fresh blooming flowers (and the mere sight of a pink peony makes me especially weak in the knees), but a bouquet that lasts forever? Brilliant! Fresh flowers, while lovely, will wilt. And, days after your wedding you’ll be tossing away your bouquet in the trash. Today, however, we’re showing you how to make your bouquet last forever so you can avoid the sad toss-away dance and replace it with a bouquet that lasts forever! These five handmade fabric bouquets by Autumn and Grace Bridal are crafted with love and can be re-used after the wedding day as delightful home decor. Many years from now when your daughter asks what your bouquet looked like, you can show her in person. Who knows, maybe it will even be her special “something borrowed”! Read on to see 5 hand-picked bouquets you’ll love to hold onto down the aisle and happily ever after…

5 Fabric Flower Bouquets

1. Vintage Inspired Fabric Bouquet

This vintage-inspired fabric flower bouquet features large cotton cabbage roses, rosettes and lace. We love the lace detailing and beading in the center.

Aren’t they lovely? Don’t forget your bridesmaids, too, who would also love a bouquet that lasts forever (and doesn’t make the allergy-prone ‘maids sneeze down the aisle).

I love the idea of having a bouquet that lasts forever – and then you can pull it out at each anniversary and snap a picture together with it!

Love the idea of fabric bouquets! They can be dressed up with bouquet jewelry, rhinestone bouquet picks or monogram bouquet letters for an even more unique, personalized look. No need to worry about flower preservation when opting for a non-traditional bouquet. So pretty!
