It has been about a month since my wedding (crazy, time flew!) and I didn't ever have a plan of what to do with it so I did nothing. when I got home I stuck it in a vase with water to keep it as long as possible. Now I have a bunch of dead flowers that I can't bring myself to throw out, but know it's time! I wish I better prepared a way to save them, but I was too busy the days leading up to the wedding to give it any thought.
