A: Yes, but only certain times a year as wedding bouquets make up a lot of my custom orders. You can from shop our selection Original Artwork or contact us to discuss custom options.
Wedding Bouquet FAQ
Q: WILL THE COLOURS FADE?
A: Each flower is pressed to hold the colour as much as possible but naturally, the colours will fade over time. We recommend keeping your original pieces out of direct sunlight and humidity preserve the quality of your artwork.
Q: DO FLOWERS HAVE TO BE FRESH TO PRESS?
A: Yes! Fresh flowers press best and we always try and press wedding pieces soon as they arrive to ensure the best quality and colours for your final artwork.
Q: MY BOUQUET IS ALREADY DRY, CAN YOU PRESS IT?
A: Typically no, as the flowers will crumble if put under any kind of pressure. If you have saved or pressed flowers and would like to have us frame them, please send a few photos and we will be able to tell if they are possible. If you have smaller dried flowers in your wedding bouquet we can usually still use them!
Q: DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
A: Yes! a $100 deposit is required to hold your wedding date as space is quite limited during wedding season (June-Oct). Visit out Wedding Bouquet Preservation page for full details and check our seasonal availability.
A: Although we’ve never had an issue, there is always a possibility when dealing with perishable products that the flowers won’t press well or mould. If any particular flower type does not work out as planned, you may be notified by us if we feel it will impact the integrity of your final artwork. Please accept that we are not responsible to replace any particular flowers that may not have made it through the pressing process but if necessary we will happily work with you to substitute similar flowers from our collection to complete your final artwork.
Q: I'M NOT LOCAL TO YOU, CAN YOU PRESS MY BOUQUET?
A: Your bouquet is very delicate and time-sensitive (fresh flowers always press best). While we do prefer it hand-delivered within 1-2 days of your wedding, if you are unable to deliver personally please reach out to discuss shipping your bouquet to us by courier at your expense. We suggest next day delivery with special packing instructions. Along with this, you can also now pay to have your finished artwork shipped to you once it's complete!
Q: HOW DO I KEEP MY FLOWERS FRESH FOR YOU?
A: After you are done with your ceremony & photos we recommend to keep your bouquet in a cool space and out of direct summer heat and in water until they are delivered. This will prevent wilting and help ensure they arrive in the best shape possible for pressing. If you have table arrangements that have similar flowers you can always send a few extras to make sure we are pressing the best flowers for your final artwork.
