What do you spray on flowers to preserve them?
Using hairspray is an effective and easy way to preserve flowers. Select fresh, blooming flowers, and tie them to a hanger so they can dry. Leave them in a well-ventilated, dark room for 2-3 weeks. When the flowers are completely dry, spray 3 even layers of aerosol hairspray over all of the flowers.
Is it OK to use fake flowers at your wedding?
You can definitely use faux flowers instead of fresh ones (especially if you’re highly allergic to the real deal), but don’t go this route if you’re looking to save some money. In fact, good artificial flowers (the kind that look real) are usually made of silk and can be more expensive than their natural counterparts.
How do you preserve a bouquet with hairspray?
Here’s how to do it:
- Trim your flower stems as usual.
- Before you put them in a vase, spray the flowers with hairspray, taking care to keep the nozzle far enough away that the force won’t damage delicate petals.
- Hang the flowers upside down (in a well-ventilated space) until the hairspray dries completely.
Do you hold your bouquet during ceremony?
The easiest and most common answer is to hand your bouquet to your Maid/Matron of Honor/Man of Honor. They can hold any bouquets and be a rock star for you. You’ll be hands-free and able to hold hands with your best friend, wipe away tears, and exchange rings.
How do you hold a large bouquet?
Hold the bouquet just under the flowers so that they rest on your hand. Carry the bouquet with one hand, at the level of your hips and slightly to the side so that it is not in the middle of your dress. Tilt the bouquet slightly to the front, so the flowers will cover your hand and most of the stem.
How much is a cascading bridal bouquet?
In the mid-range, a crescent bouquet with a more expensive flower such as roses or calla lilies might cost $75. And on the high end, a 40-stem cascading bouquet with roses, gardenias and orchids might cost $120 or more.
