Flower Preservation: 10 ways to enjoy your wedding flowers forever

One of our most popular posts describes how to preserve your wedding bouquet. Since that was written I have seen some wonderful ideas to display them forever, as a lovely keepsake. The easiest way is to press them and then frame them but I am loving some of these more unusual ideas.

I love these domes or cloches filled with your dried bouquet. The glass will protect them from dust or breakages and they will look so pretty sitting on a dressing table. These are by Save My Bouquet.
