If you intend to keep your wedding bouquet as a keepsake from your wedding, then you should preserve it. Preserving your wedding bouquet will ensure it stays intact for a very long time.
There are various ways to preserve wedding bouquets, and you can even choose to do the preservation yourself. But remember, your wedding bouquet is irreplaceable – if the preservation process goes awry, you may lose your precious memento.
Instead of trying to preserve your bouquet yourself, you may want to let a professional do the job for you. Doing this precludes and reduces the chances of the possible risks that come with flower preservation.
