Preserving Your Bouquet/Putting It in a Shadow Box...
I had my bouquet freeze dried by a professional but I don't know if I want her to put it in one of her shadow boxes because she charges like $350! PLUS the $125 it cost to freeze the flowers. Anyone have suggestions or advice about how they preserved their bouquet and/or made a shadow box? Thanks! :)

I didn't bother with this as I'm not a fan of dried flowers myself, but $350 for framing sounds really high! You should inquire around at other framing shops, especially at Michaels as they both sell the ready made shadow boxes and offer custom framing - not to mention the coupon deals!!

you could probably pick up a shadow box and DIY your own.

i plan on drying my flowers at home and then putting them in clear christmas balls to put on my tree (and make one for my parents and FH's parents).

Hobby Lobby also has shadow boxes. I think they could probably frame it for you for cheaper as well if you don't want to DIY it. Unless you have a giant bouquet or she's using expensive designer wood it really shouldn't be $350.
