The feeling and emotion a bride gets when she sees her bouquet or the reception room with all the flowers beautifully arranged for the first time is a memory of a lifetime.
Why not relive that experience monthly (or even annually) at your own home? Here are some simple tips from wedding floral designers, STEM Events, on how to recreate the feeling you experienced when you saw your wedding flowers long after the big day.
Make sure you know the names of the flowers used at your wedding. If they are not in season, look for similar shaped varieties.
Ask your florist to give you a basic tutorial on how to prepare and preserve flowers at home. Florists always know tricks and have tips for the longevity of flowers.
Buying flowers can be a healthy habit – think of it as self-care. If it brings you joy, work it into your weekly budget!
Perhaps once a month for your first year of marriage, treat yourself (and your new spouse) to a bouquet arranged by you! If you cannot always afford to have a full bouquet at home, try getting a few single stems and placing them in bud vases around the house.
The more you buy, practice arranging, and play with flowers, the more you learn about what to buy and how to arrange them. Also acquire a good pair of scissors and use them only for your flowers.
Pro tip: You don’t have to have a lot of vases. Almost everything in your kitchen works as a vase – a glass, a flute, a cup, a cereal bowl or a wine bottle will work in a pinch!
Whether you splurge on a monthly arrangement or make it an anniversary tradition, a nice spot to place your replica bouquet is near one of your wedding pictures. The sight and scent of your wedding flowers is sure to bring back emotional, happy memories of your big day! What is sweeter than that?
