About the process:
Freeze drying or "sublimation" is a process of extracting water without going through the liquid phase. Pressed bouquets are two dimensional on fabric backgrounds that framed flat against the glass while freeze dried are three dimensional and mounted in shadowboxes, domed frames or tabletop lanterns. The flowers are chemically treated both pre and post freeze drying. Even flowers in presses are processed in the freeze dryer.
Some flowers do better than others with the preservation process. Recomendations are available upon request. Instructions for keeping the flowers after your event will vary and advice is part of the consultation.
Time is a factor in getting the best results. Keep your flowers cool and hydrated after your event. Depending on the time of year, the process can take anywhere from a few to several months. We suggest placing your order about 2 months before the wedding date.
An average bouquet will be approximately $500 to preserve, though cost may vary a bit depending on the choice of frame. A deposit of $250 is required upon ordering.
Speces are limited, so call today to let us transform your bouquet into an everlasting keepsake.
