Have your bouquet, your bridesmaids bouquets or other ceremony and reception flowers dried and made into wreaths as a special keepsake to hang on your walls. Wreaths can be made in many different sizes.
Have any of your wedding flowers dried and arranged in a glass dome.
*Domes vary in sizes, shapes and colours and are subject to availability.
All flowers have a different level of water content which affects drying time. Some flowers will dry within days during the heat of summer), whereas fleshier spring bulb flowers can take up to a few months to dry fully. After they have dried it should take approximately 2 to 4 weeks to prepare your wreaths, domes and/or bouquets, depending on availability of materials from my suppliers.
Short answer is yes, all flowers can be dried.
Long answer, is not all flowers will dry to the same quality. Some flowers will fall apart and have to be reconstructed with glue (lilies, large daisies). Some flowers are too fleshy (high water content) and potentially will go mouldy, like orchids and spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils).
Usually roses are pretty trusty when it comes to drying but it depends on how long they were in water for before they reach me.
Yes, but preference is for Hamilton deliveries, so if you are getting married in the middle of the North Island see if anyone is travelling past Hamilton after your wedding to drop off your flowers.
If you would like to send me your flowers from outside of Hamilton please do the following;
- Email Sarah first for confirmation that I can take on your flowers.
- Keep your flowers out of water once the ceremony is over.
- Check if any of your flowers have been placed in a flower food pouch (like a watery gel, mainly used for orchids), and remove them from the pouches so they don't spill in transit.
- Cut of 2cm of the ends of the stems of the bouquets.
- Cover stems with paper towels and wrap the bouquet in a rubbish bag. Blow air into the bag so it puffs up. Fill extra space in box with crumpled newspaper or the like.
- Send by overnight courier for fastest arrival.
