The Drying Process
The drying process can take several weeks. It all depends on what kind of flowers we are drying. We remove any gemstones, brooches, feathers, or other non-flower accents prior to drying. However, unlike wedding bouquet preservation, our designers do not disassemble your corsage or boutonniere. While we will not dry a corsage that is beyond repair, we will do minor repairs and replacement of flowers to make sure the finished product will be beautiful. Finally, we pretreat your flowers to help them hold their color and shape.
Once your flowers come out of our drying trays, we touch them up before treating them with a sealant. The sealant will protect your flowers from shattering and fading. Finally, we will reattach any gemstones, brooches, feathers, that were removed prior to drying.
When the Drying Process is complete, you may take your flowers home to save however you please. Or you may choose to have our designers create a keepsake memory box. Keep in mind, if you choose not to have us create as Keepsake, your flowers must be kept in an airtight environment.
