It listed the designer as The Ritzy Rose so of course I had to head to the site and check on the work for myself. All of the bouquets are beautiful, and you can even send in your own family jewelry to be used. What a neat idea! If only I was that creative. They are a little more expensive than normal floral bouquets (well I guess it's all relative to budget and location) but they will definitely last way past the wedding date (unless you preserve your flowers like I did-see below) and make a great decoration post wedding. Not going to lie, the thought has crossed my mind to order one just for decoration whenever I have extra $$ in the budget (ha!).
Although my wedding has come and gone (8 months ago wow!) I still love looking at stuff for fun and sharing ideas with engaged friends (or really anyone who will listen).
If you aren't into the whole bedazzled bouquet thing and want to keep your flowers post wedding you can always dry them or have them preserved. Unfortunately if you just dry them you run the risk of crushing the petals. I had never heard of bouquet preservation but two people my mom knew had it done and loved it. So my mom had mine preserved and framed along with Sean's boutineer and our wedding invitation as a gift.
We had to have to bouquet to the preserver (a sweet lady in a small TN town) within 48 hours of the wedding. She also requested we take multiple pictures of the bouquet and boutineer before giving her the flowers to make sure she could easily replace any flowers if needed. A few of our blooms didn't fare well through the preservation process and she even emailed and asked before replacing anything in the original bouquet.
She had us pick out a shadowbox style (domed or flat), a background color (we picked a neutral color) and a frame color/style.
It is a neat conversation piece and will be a great decoration for years to come.
