A few bride tips –
- When you preserve flowers, you’ll want to start the process when petals are still vibrant, colorful, and unstained. If you wait too long, they’ll have more time to die, wilt, and become discolored.
- If you’re drying your stems yourself remember to handle them with care. The dried stems will become brittle and fragile.
