Simple Ideas for your Bridal Bouquet

  • Dry it out to keep it forever. If you aren't quite ready to be done with your wedding bouquet, who says that you have to be? It's your wedding bouquet after all! Simply tie it together at the stem,  hang it upside down and let those flowers dry out. Be careful, they will be brittle but once they are dried, you can place them in a vase on the shelf to keep for many years to come. A sweet memento to forever remember your wedding day! 
  • Make a bookmark with the petals. If you are a lover of reading, why not create a super special bookmark for yourself? Imagine opening your book and seeing your wedding bouquet flowers each and every time? It's certain to bring a smile to your face! All you need to do is take a few of the petals, place them between a couple of pieces of laminate paper, run it through a laminate machine, and trim it to the size you want. And just like that, you have a bookmark that showcases the love that you have for your spouse while you are spending your time reading your book.
  • Pass it on to someone else. Everyone loves fresh flowers, right? In the days following the wedding, why not think about brightening someone's day by giving them the gift of your wedding bouquet. If you have a close friend or family member that was unable to attend, pay them a visit and bring them your wedding bouquet of fresh flowers. They'll love that you still found a way to share your special day with them.
  • Create a piece of custom-made jewelry with petals from your bouquet. It's totally possible to find a creative and local jeweler to talk to that can take a few of your petals and incorporate them into a bracelet, necklace or earrings. Do your research and ask again for some suggestions on finding the best jeweler possible for this task!
  • Repurpose it if possible. If you have no real desire to keep your wedding bouquet, then why not give it to someone who has an event or party coming up in the next few days or week? A beautiful bouquet would be great for a birthday party or anniversary centerpiece, and no one attending will have any idea that it was just used for a wedding. If those flowers are still vibrant and have life left in them, pass your bridal bouquet off to someone else who can use it! Share the love of those beautiful flowers!

While the suggestions above are great options, there are still a ton of other great ideas out there on how to repurpose or reuse your bridal bouquet. The most important part is to decide if it is something that you want to keep, and if so, how do you envision it being a part of your daily life? Once you have that questioned answered, your mind will be full of adorable and inventive ways on how to showcase your bridal bouquet!
