Preserve your Special Flower Wedding Keepsakes
Whatever the special day might be, a common theme is flowers. Flowers are given at most memorable events, from the bouquet painstakingly designed by the bride-to-be to the "Welcome to the world" flowers given to a loved one at the birth of their child, to your daughter's graduation - and every special occasion in between!
In the past when people wished to preserve a keepsake from the special day, they might hang the bouquet upside down in order to dry the flowers. This creates a very delicate display that doesn't hold up well to wear and tear over time - dried flowers are notoriously difficult to dust! Another option was to take a single flower and press it between the pages of a book. This has an obviously flattening effect, but it's also a form of drying, and arguably more durable than dried three-dimensional flowers. However, they're less impressive for display. Probably only appropriately placed within a picture frame, while the dried bouquets could be best displayed within a protected picture box on the wall.
Today, however, wedding keepsakes and other commemorative flower keepsakes can be beautifully preserved within clear resin. The resin can be poured into moulds of various designs and have multiple functions. The resin moulds can be purely decorative, or they can be functional in nature.
We offer a variety of resin designs to display your beautiful flower keepsakes, including:
Tea light holders in round, heart, and sphere shapes.
Letters or initials
Heart, block, sphere, cube, square, hexagon, and hexagon-pillar shaped resin decor
Charms in large, thin, heart-shaped, and faceted styles
We know that with so many beautiful selections to choose from, it can be difficult to choose just one item! That's why we've put together a selection of packages for you to choose from. Of course, you can choose just one resin commemorative keepsake... but if you can't, then a package might make it easier.
We offer four packages to choose from which range in price from £270 to £940.
When it comes to preserving a wedding memento from the flowers used at the actual event, resin is the most durable option. A durable resin wedding keepsake gift will keep for years in perfect condition. These gifts can be passed down through generations as family heirlooms.
You can coordinate with us prior to the actual wedding to ensure a smooth process. We will need to dry the wedding flowers or bouquets properly after the wedding. On the day after the wedding, we ask that you send us your flowers (don't worry, we'll provide detailed instructions on how to do this).
The actual drying process can take a long time. A lot of people are surprised to hear how long it takes to properly dry out flowers for use in resin. At a minimum, it will take two weeks for the flowers to be sufficiently dried for the resin process. Once the flowers are properly dried, then we can begin crafting your selected design. This stage can also take a bit of time. How much time is dependent upon the design selected. Our designs generally take between one and 4 weeks to craft.
If you choose these keepsake gifts for the bride and groom, it's important to understand that they won't be deliverable until several weeks after the event. However, how delighted will they be to unwrap their durable wedding keepsake gift weeks after their special day?
