If using real, what will you do with your bouquet afterwards?

    We'll be taking it to his grandmother's gravesite.  We are getting married on what would have been his grandparents' 56th anniversary!

    I can't even remember what happened to it.  I know I used it on the cake table during the reception and I have pics of me leaving with it.  It was beautiful but I wasn't emotionally attached to it or anything.  And I got lots of pics like Mrs. Jesse said.

    I gave it to my mom and she displayed it in her house until it wilted.

    My sister had hers preserved.  It cost 3 times what the bouquet cost and it just sat on the top shelf of her closet for 5 years.  Then they got divorced, so she just threw it away.  To me, the pictures are the preservation, so I'll just toss mine after the wedding...

    Most of these posts are quite old...however I found this awesome idea and have put in my order to reserve my spot.  It's a website called Flowers Into Paintings www.flowersintopaintings.com.  Granted it is a bit pricey, but I want something more useful and meaningful then drying my flowers and putting them in a shadowbox or other display method.  It also gave me the idea of what to give my MOH for a gift.  It won't be a surprise since I wanted to check with her before placing the order, because for me a gift of $125 that someone won't like is such a waste!   It will take 7-8 months after my flowers are shipped after the wedding to actually get the painting, but it looks/sounds worth it!  I've attached samples from their website
