How to get the most out of your wedding bouquet

If flowers are your thing it's no doubt you have chosen beautiful ones to complement your venue for your special day. But, flowers last longer than one day so how do you get the most out of them?



We recently caught up with Jill from The Little Flower Hut to understand how you can continue to enjoy your bouquet beyond your big day, here are a few of her tips:

  • If a bouquet is filled with grasses and mostly beautiful foliage these will dry out naturally when left out of water and can be enjoyed for a considerable time.
  • Most bouquets are filled with gorgeous fresh blooms, some do better than others but to enjoy them for a little while longer, give the stems a fresh cut by a centimetre or two, ideally on an angle so the flowers can take in more water and place the bouquet in a lovely clean vase with fresh clean water and a little flower food.
  • Another option is to hang your bouquet upside down somewhere dry (an airing cupboard or over a radiator for a few weeks until thoroughly dry. The flowers won’t be as they were on your wedding day but the heart of your bouquet will be there.
  • If you know you would definitely like to preserve your bouquet after your wedding day there are lots of options from pressing to silica gel or having it professionally captured by an artist.
