I had fake floral bouquet but We have dual his and her shelves at home and we split wedding stuff and displayed it on those shelves for instance my shelf has my bouquet and headband with a frame of our wedding song lyrics. His shelf has the cake toppers and his boutonnière and a frame of our written vows
My bouquet is artificial so I'm putting it in a rose gold round vase we used for decoration at our sweetheart table (and also where I put my bouquet during the reception) and then also putting our cake topper through my bouquet so it'll all be in a little vase on a shelf somewhere in our house.
Left mine on our sweetheart table. Whoops! It's okay, though—I trusted my florist because I had sent her tons of photos, but she did not do as I wanted at all and I actually hated my bouquet. So I was fine leaving it behind.
I love the idea of displaying it but with the veil and tiara feels a little much? Where in your home were you thinking? I do love that for say a dressing room or walk in closet, but would find it a little odd in a living room.
I saw a really cute idea where flowers/greenery was used as a stamp on paper and then the stamped paper was put into a frame and hung. It's a nice idea for someone who isn't sure they want to deal with preserving the actual flowers. I'm considering soaking mine in some kind of a preservative but I have time to think about it. 🙆
I had plans on sending it to get it pressed and framed, but I didn’t find this out until after the wedding at UPS that I needed to get the bouquet checked at the airport before sending it out.
The lady I ordered a pressed bouquet from can recreate my bouquet, so I’m having her do that instead now. In the mean time I grabbed what flowers I could from my own bouquet and pressed them at the hotel (it had been a few days so I didn’t have many nice flowers to choose from) and brought it back with me to the states- I told the security people at the airport and it passed, phew.
