How Your Wedding Bouquet is Preserved

  • Keep Your Bouquet Cool and Hydrated

    The best results for preserving the most authentic colors, shapes and textures of your flowers is to dry the freshest blooms possible. It is very important that the bouquet is kept cool, hydrated in water and delivered as soon as possible after the wedding or special occasion. Friends or family members can also deliver, ship or courier the bouquet if you are not available. To aid the flowers to take up more water it is also very helpful to recut the stems. It is important to note that any damage such as wilted, bruised, discolored or crushed petals cannot be reversed in the preservation process. Replacement flowers can be purchased from your florist if some of the blooms are too damaged to preserve.

  • Drying the Most Beautiful Botanicals

    Once the bouquet is received, the best blooms are carefully and individually dried for approximately 2-3 weeks. During the drying and resin process certain colors can change. Reds, pinks and purples can darken and whites tend to become cream colored or yellowish. Also, some flowers can appear to have translucent spots depending on how spent or bruised they were when they were dried. This seems to be most apparent in white roses. Once all the botanicals are dry, a creative design is made in the mold.

  • Pouring the Resin

    The next step is pouring the resin. Over a number of days, many fine layers are carefully poured over the very delicate floral ingredients. Each layer of resin must set before the next layer is poured. The resin is generally poured to aproximately 1.75 inches in depth. Any blooms that are deeper than 1.75 inches will be covered in resin to protect the blooms, but they will not be submerged under the resin. This produces a lovely three dimensional effect!
    Important note: Because of the nature of working with resin and very delicate botanicals and also because this is original handmade art, there is always the possibility of bubbles, small flaws and imperfections.

  • Drying and Curing

    Lastly, once the pouring is complete, your Resin Bouquet will dry for approximately 7 days to ensure that it is completely hardened and cured. The entire preservation process takes about 4-5 weeks in total. All resin art is non-toxic, and produces no VOCs or fumes. Please keep your preserved Resin Bouquet away from direct sunlight as you would with any piece of art or original painting.
