    Has anyone thought about having their bouquet and boutionnere preserved and framed? I found a great clay bouquet maker on etsy.com and was considering getting a clay bouquet because it would be cheaper then preserving and framing a real one! How easy will it be to have the bouquet preserved from Jamaica? What do you think? Felicia Soon to be Mrs. Swanson IRHB MoBay, Jamaica 11.12.11

            No problem. The only reason I was thinking about going with the clay was because it would be way less expensive. Plus I don't want to spend alot on floral decorations when they are only good for that day.

              This is what I am planning on doing, Just taking a few of the flowers and "pressing" them in waxed paper and when they are dry putting them into a frame.

                That's a neat idea will you be preserving them too? I seen something on YouTube about using some kind of sand to preserve your flowers.
