I'm Preserving my Bouquet, What are my Design Options?

Pressed Wedding Flowers - Designs By Andrea

The design you choose to preserve your pressed florals in is just as important as your fresh bouquet, if not more. After all, it's the way your florals will be displayed forever! Needless to say, this can be a difficult decision to make. We get so many questions about design options and truthfully, some options may work better for different types of bouquets. Most of the time, it's all up to your personal preferences. Let's take a closer look at your design options!

Flowers Only

Our most popular pick, this design puts your florals front and center! We use the photos you provide to recreate your bouquet so that the placement of your fresh florals match your piece and are perfectly preserved in place forever.

Flowers & Ribbons

Incorporate your lovely ribbons into your design for added flair! Bridal bouquets with loose and hanging ribbons shine in this design. A lovely way to display your beautiful ribbons is by letting them hang from the piece on to the matting of your frame.

Flowers, Ribbons, & Stems

Incorporating all three aspects in your preserved piece will make you feel like you can simply reach in for your bouquet and relive your wedding day over and over again. That feeling is what makes this design option a classic.


Wedding Invitations & Vows

Framed vows make a great daily reminder of the love you and your spouse share. What better way to display them than adorned with your bridal flowers! If you loved your invitation and want to preserve it, this is a great option as well. Adding an invitation works best in pieces that are 12x12 or larger so that we can still fit many of your flowers. When adding wedding vows, another option is to place the flowers on the matting. (See picture #5)


Although non-traditional, the silhouette design is the perfect way to preserve your florals along with special memories. Believe it or not, we can use your flowers to create the city or state where you and your fiancé met or use them to recreate a special moment in time like your first kiss as a married couple.

Dress Design 

This mixed-media design, although similar to the silhouette, is different because we incorporate a portrait then fill the wedding dress with florals.

Torn Between Two Designs?

Don't worry, we can help! Before we begin creating your piece, we'll go over all aspects of design on our phone consultation. We will discuss the condition of your pressed flowers and guide you through picking a design you love along with the perfect background and frame! If you're still stuck, remember that you don't have to pick just one. Some of our designs can also be made in smaller versions!
