Flower Preservation Letter / Number Service

Keep the magic of your wedding memories alive, by preserving the flowers from your bridal bouquet in stunning art form. Your wedding flowers are an important part of your big day so having them preserved for all time can be a poignant reminder of your happy occasion.

We carefully dry your wedding bouquet flowers to preserve them with resin in your choice of 11cm by 2.5cm letters or numbers. The 11CM letters hold full flowers like roses and foliage. We also have the 5CM Letters which are available, these hold petals. You can spell out your initials, the date of your wedding, the word 'love' or any other combination that strikes your fancy. 

Along with the flowers and petals, you may wish to include other mementos to be preserved in the letters such as confetti or ribbons. All of our items are handmade and unique, crafted with love, care and attention :)  

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Flowers may change colour during the drying process.
  • Every keepsake is hand crafted so there may be air bubbles within or on the outside of your shape/letter.
  • Flowers must be thoroughly dried before preservation or the flowers could spoil, so completion time may vary between 8-12 weeks
  • Whilst we can accept whole bouquets, unfortunately due to space we can’t dry, keep and send back any remaining flowers.
  • Please keep your letter pieces away from sunlight and chemicals (perfume, polishes, cleaning sprays, soaps etc). The items can be wiped over with a slightly damp cloth if needed. The items can scratch so keep it away from rough/sharp surfaces.

----------------

The following guidelines show how to easily post us your flowers:


Step 1: Cut the bottom of the bouquet to allow the flowers to collect some moisture during the travel. For any ribboning which may be wrapped around the base, if you could remove this and include (we could add this into the resin also if you'd like) 

 

Step 2: Collect some kitchen tissue paper, at least a handful of sheets and dampen this to allow for the flowers to collect some water during travelling. Wrap this around the base of the flowers.


 

Step 3: Wrap kitchen foil tightly around the base of the flowers, to ensure no water escapes and travels through to the bud. 


 

Step 4: Place the base of the flowers in a sandwich bag, close the bag as much as possible.

 

  

Step 5: Pop some Kitchen Tissue around the top of the flowers to protect them and ensure of any water escapes the tissue will collect it. Please don't make this too wet, just damp is totally okay for the journey.

 

Step 6: Add the flowers, ideally upright, but if you can’t do this, don’t panic - in a box with bubble wrap/ cushioning into a strong box. Enough padding so the flowers don’t move around during transit.

 

Step 7: Please place “Fragile” on the outer box and post! Add a note in the box including your Order Number & Name so we know the flowers are yours on arrival :)

It's incredibly important to ensure that before delivering the flowers whether it's via the postal route, or hand delivery that you try to preserve the bouquet as best as possible. This ensures that the flowers stay the freshest as possible. A few tips:

  1. If you can cut the bottoms of the stems 1/4 inch to help the flowers breath in the water a little.
  2. Keep the flowers hydrated after the wedding, pop them in water, away from direct sunlight and only keep the stems hydrated - don't water the flowers. 
We'd suggest to wait a 8-10 weeks to have this delivered back to you. As it takes sometime to dry the flowers and we carefully take apart the bouquet to do this. We always keep all our flowers separate from each client. We will however keep you updated throughout the process and you are more than welcome to contact us on hello@magentaflowers.co.uk if you'd like an update.
