    Generally you keep it in a cool dark space.

    I dried mine in silica gel. It was super easy and there are tons of tutorials online for how to do it. They turned out beautiful and I am going to frame them in a shadow box to hang on the wall.

    Silica gel is a good way to preserve the colors of the flowers. Or, if it’s in your budget, there are professionals that will dry them and memorialize them in tons of unique ways

    I’m drying mine like this inside the garage. You can see on the left picture it’s still in the process of drying and on the right is how they looked fresh. So once dried the color will be darker. I think the important thing is to hang it upside down to get rid of all the moisture. Once it’s completely dried I’ll keep it In a nice vase. But do be gentle on handling it when it’s dried, the petals tends to fall off. Hope this helps🙂How do you dry your bouquet? 2

    Did you put it in a drying agent or just hanging upside down

    This is what I did too, but I used the closet.
    I didn’t use anything, just tied it and hung it upside down.
    Then I took it apart and put it in a shadow box.

    No drying agent, just upside down. It’s been 2 weeks since I did mine. Should be ready soon. I’m in CA, climate is fairly dry so if you’re in a more humid area it might take longer.

    I never thought about putting it into a shadow box, that’s a great idea. I will start looking for a shadow box, thank you for the awesome idea!

    Look up bouquet pressing near you! You ship it out and they press the entire thing into a glass framed picture. It's beautiful! That's what I'm planning on doing with mine. It has to be done within a week from your wedding. Good luck!
