Frequently Asked Questions about Bouquet Preservation at the Pressed Bouquet Shop

How can I safely ship my bouquet to the Pressed Bouquet Shop?

Overnight shipping is strongly encouraged for bouquets that are not sent the day after the wedding. During shipment, some flowers may brown or lose petals. Overnight shipment can reduce the risk of this occurring. While we will not reject a bouquet if it is not sent with overnight shipping, please note that the flowers will always be worked with in the condition that they are received. 

The order confirmation email will contain a link to the shipping instructions to guide you through the process.

How much can I expect to pay, all costs included?

The cost of the frame plus our service is listed under each individual product on the Bouquet Preservation Frames page. Taxes and shipping of the final frame are not included in this price but will be calculated at checkout. The other additional cost to consider is shipping the fresh florals to Allentown, PA with Zip Code: 18106. 

You can estimate the cost of your shipment by using UPS's shipping calculator tool.

 

What will my bouquet look like when pressed? 

When pressing flowers, the colors and textures may be altered due to the preservation process. Often pure white florals tend to turn more to an antiqued white, pink florals can often fade to a light pink/yellow, and red tones can become more pink/purple. Every flower is unique and takes the pressing process differently, however we always strive to have the finished product represent the bouquet as closely and as accurately as possible. 

 

How long will my pressed bouquet last? 

Due to the fact that we are working with an organic matter, the pigmentation in pressed flowers will fade over time. We do not paint or enhance the colors of the pressed flowers in any way to keep the natural look of your wedding bouquet. While your bouquet display may arrive vibrant and colorful, it will likely fade overtime. In order to keep it looking as close to the original as possible for as long as possible, we suggest keeping the display away from bright lighting and sunlight. Each flower will fade/discolor at different rates, but keeping the display in a temperature controlled, dimly lit space will help to extend the color of the pressed blooms. 


How far in advance should I place my order?

We understand that you may decide you want to keep your florals after you see them in person on your wedding day! We are happy to accept last-minute orders for bouquet preservations. Orders can be placed from 6 months in advance, up to the week of the wedding. 

 

Can I add any additions to my frame?

Yes, there are a few additions that can be added to the frame.

  1. Boutonnieres can be included with a bouquet display free of charge or add on a boutonniere frame to your order to have the boutonniere framed in its own display!
  2. Wedding invitations or other paper decals can be included at no additional cost.

When shipping the bouquet, please include a note inside the box with your name and a list of all contents of the box. If this note is not included, items may run the risk of being accidentally discarded. 


How long has the Pressed Bouquet Shop been in operation?

The shop has been in operation since the fall of 2019, however we have been pressing and framing flowers as a hobby for the last few years.  


When delivered, are the frames gift-wrapped?

Yes! When received you can expect your frame to be wrapped with delicate tissue and ribbon.


How can I feel certain that the final frame will arrive safely to my home?
 

Finished frames are packaged in professionally assembled frame shipment boxes lined with static-free foam cushioning to ensure a damage-free delivery. 

If a frame were to arrive damaged, a replacement frame will be sent to replace the damaged frame as quickly as possible.   


My bouquet is already dried, can the flowers and greens still be pressed?
 

We are only able to work with florals that are no more than one week old. Flowers quickly begin to brown and lose petals immediately after they are cut. If already dry, the flowers and leaves will crumble if pressing is attempted. If your bouquet is either dry or more than a week old, consider the recreation service detailed below. 


Do you offer bouquet recreation services?

Yes, the Pressed Bouquet Shop works with Rich Mar Florist to recreate bouquets based on photos of the original florals and greens. There is no additional charge for this service, except the cost of the flowers and greens which will be paid to Pressed Bouquet Shop when the order is placed.

If you are considering this option, please email us a few photos of your original bouquet to get started. The Pressed Bouquet Shop will coordinate requesting a quote from the florist and will follow up in a few days with next steps.
