Use fake roses. Otherwise, they’ll die. Besides…how long do you really want to hang onto your bouquet? Pictures are much better keepsakes from your wedding and they take up less space.

They actually sell apowder at the craft store, you get a big container put in the boquet and cover it with the powder till it’s dry then put it in a shadow box ,very nice.

You can use Silica Gel or Silica Sand which you can find at just about any craft store to preserve your bouquet. If you are not interested in DIY then you can have it freeze dried which leaves them the most realistic looking and believe that most florists preserve flowers as well. What ever you do you need to plan it in advance because you will need to get started right away.
