Hi, loves! Emma here and a few days ago, I was browsing Pinterest and came across this amazing shadow box to preserve wedding flowers. It looked beautiful and made me think, hmm, I wonder how to preserve wedding flowers in other ways and led me to this post.
So, here you go: if you didn’t know it yet, there are fourteen (I know, crazy, right?!) really fun and unique ways to preserve wedding flowers so you can hold on to those fresh blooms for a long time. We’ve been talking a lot about faux bouquets and sola flower alternatives, which are awesome, but in case you want to preserve fresh flowers these are perfect options for you.
Take a look and I’m sure you’ll be as amazed as I was to find so many creative ways to preserve bouquets. Enjoy!
