Preserving Bridal Bouquets

Our As You Wish brides put a lot of thought into making their bouquets a personalized creation that it only makes sense to stick with that same frame of mind following the wedding day. Just like your favorite bridal portrait, you can also have your bouquet preserved, framed and incorporated into your home decor.

The preservation options don't stop there though. Now brides are looking into alternative options for preserving bridal bouquets that can turn them into keepsakes or heartfelt gifts!

When we first heard about Bloombeads we fell in love! When we found out Sasha Souza selected Bloombeads as one of "Sasha's Favorite Things" for 2011, we knew it was meant to be! Here is a blurb from the Bloombeads website that perfectly describes the beauty in their products: "Life is like a string of beads...each bead, a moment; each moment, a memory. Memories strung together tell the story of your life. Turn your memories into a wearable story, with Bloombeads; flower-petal jewelry produced from your actual flowers."

For brides interested in preserving bridal bouquets we suggest contacting the preservation company several weeks prior to your wedding date to ensure that everything is set up and ready to go by the time the wedding comes. Another company we recommend for these services is Keepsake Floral From all of us at As You Wish, happy planning!
