Stupid title? Not so sure. 18 years in the industry and hours of research show that this is a much overlooked venue. Even the wedding industry rarely mentions floral preservation on its’ “to-do” lists for the bride. Yet here’s the problem – it IS one of the first things the bride thinks about when her actual wedding day arrives!
The usual scenario goes something like this: Doorbell rings, florist arrives with flowers, bride is mesmorized by her beautiful bouquet. Never in her wildest dreams did she ever realize how beautiful those flowers would be. That’s when she decides she wants them saved. Mom is left with the task of finding someone AFTER the wedding is over.
Brides – get this on your list of things to do before your wedding day. Don’t be caught off-guard by the beauty of your flowers and then have the chance of them being ruined because you didn’t take the time to check out your options. Check out the internet for floral preservation in your area or nearby area. Many times your florist will know of someone who is skilled in this trade.
