Traditional Bridal Wedding Bouquet Preservation 

Keep Your Bouquet Forever!

The history of two-dimensional dried and pressed flower preservation dates back to Victorian times and is the most reliable method of preserving your wedding bouquet for a lifetime.   Although flower colors may fade somewhat and "antique" over time, the arrangement (which is held together under the pressure of the glass) will remain intact and serve as a beautiful, cherished reminder of your special day.

Bridal Bouquet Preservation Alabama and Delaware

I  relocated to Alabama in March 2012, but I am continuing to advertise in the Delaware region also since I had operated my business there for over 25 years and still have many ties to the area!      I have years of experience in drying bouquets...many examples are shown so you can get a feel for the consistency and style of her arrangements and a sense of how different types of flowers turn out in the drying process.  You can also get a sense of what different colored flowers look like on various colored fabrics. 


Sizes of these example pieces below ranged from 11 x 14 to 16 x 20.  You can click on each image below to see the "before" picture of the bouquet.  A complete Bouquet Archive is shown at bottom of this page.  Certain types and colors of flowers will deepen in shade during the drying process.  In general, most types of flowers will hold their initial dried color for several years, and then the natural fading process (which cannot be avoided when preserving organic materials such as flowers) will take a slow and very gradual course, giving the piece an antiqued look.  Artist mentions fading so that you will understand what to expect, not to discourage you!  You are sure to be pleased with the finished result of the artist's work and it will be a beautiful keepsake for future generations.   See pricing and other information links below...
