Written by Katie Byrne


You've said 'I do' - but that doesn't mean you should throw away your beautiful bridal blooms

 

#1 Dry it

This is a basic place to start: rather than discarding your bouquet or - gasp - chucking it out, dry it out to keep your options open. If you haven't decided what you want to do with your bouquet, drying it out will give you a good place to start for most ideas (other than donations). Click here for our fool-proof guide!

#5 Frame them

#6 Skip drying and place the flowers on a family member's grave

This is a wonderful way to remember a deceased loved one: the day after your ceremony, leave your bouquet at their graveside. They might not have been able to join you for your big day but you can still include them in it!
