What do you spray on wedding bouquets?

How long should the stems be on a bridal bouquet?
Trim the stems once again. This type of bouquet is meant to be held in front of the bride, so the stems should be fairly short to avoid scraping the dress. 6–7 inches (15–17.5cm) is generally a good length. Pat the ends dry with a paper towel before handing to the bride. Keep the bouquet fresh.
Can I freeze my wedding bouquet?
