Originally Mama Elephant wanted to send them to our church, but since it will be Easter Sunday we already know that the sanctuary will be filled with lilies. There are now talks of reusing some of the centerpieces at our send off brunch the morning after the wedding. I told mom if she could keep from guests taking them home, they're all hers!
I'm really only interested in saving my bouquet, but how?
Option 1: Preservation - Air Dry
A popular, easy and cheap way to preserve the bouquet would be to hang it upside down and let it air dry. I used this method on my bouquet from MOH Navy's wedding, then placed it in a vase to decorate our dinning room table.
I have heard that these dried flowers (in particular roses and peonies) may attract little moths, so you may want to bag up the bouquet and place it in the freezer for a week.
Option 2: Preservation - Freeze Dried
