You plan your dream wedding and then have the time of your life celebrating with your new spouse and all your loved ones. It’s the best! You jet off on your honeymoon and by the time you get back, most traces of your “best day ever” are gone. The flowers are wilted, the cake has been eaten or frozen, and your dress is cleaned and stored away. The post-wedding blues are very real!
One of the reasons I love wedding photography is because your wedding photos are truly one of the only lasting memories of your Big Day! You can relive all the perfect details through your photo album. But there are a few other ways I’ve found if you’re wondering how to preserve your wedding memories in a creative, enduring fashion.
Addie’s Field features incredible floral heirlooms from artist Katie Renfroe. She uses clear resin and flowers from your bridal bouquet or centerpieces to create stunning, one-of-a-kind keepsakes. You can have your flowers preserved in coasters, jewelry, flower block, or even a ring cone. The results are truly impressive, and the flowers will keep their vibrant colors!
Southern Fancy Studios will memorialize your bouquet or wedding cake in a truly impressive oil painting. You’ve got to see these works of art to truly believe them! The texture of the paintings captures the essence of a living bouquet or freshly frosted cake. Treasure one of your special wedding memories with a custom art piece that will brighten any room for years to come.
A Stitch in Time
Muted Rose Embroidery will showcase your bouquet in a delightful embroidered hoop! Artist Teagan Olivia Sturmer captures the timeless beauty of wedding bouquets with her hand-stitched masterpieces. There’s something about the classic feel of embroidery that perfectly highlights the beauty and details of a bridal bouquet.
If you decide you want to preserve your wedding memories, just remember to make your plans before your wedding day arrives! You’ll want to make sure your wedding planner knows to save your stems or your photographer knows to get a specific shot if you’re planning on preserving your flowers or working from a photo for a special wedding day keepsake.
