So you take it with you at home, still having the fresh perfume of the flowers and the joy that their colors offers still lighten up your soul and you smile content with your decision. But suddenly your smile is fading away, as you gradually realize that all that is present now in your wedding bouquet will faint sooner or later, and the flowers will die one day, and you will be forced to throw it for fear not to witness the dried petals falling down as tears fall on the cheeks of the sadness. Your thoughts are quite upset at this possibility and you begin asking for methods to show you how to dry wedding flowers. You browse the websites and a lot of options are given from hiring a professional to do that or to try doing it yourself.
The site with the professionals advise that is better to call someone to deliver their services due to their experience for one, and secondly because the process itself lasts 8 to 10 weeks and it needs thoroughly attention and care all this time. But the point is that most of the pros sites say that you had to call them before the wedding day was finished in order for them to give you tips of caring for and transporting it till the day they would have come and pick the bouquet up.
So you decide that at whatever risk you will attempt to preserve it following the steps of how to dry wedding flowers by yourself, steps which are generously described on different websites. Some of these steps include using drying agents such as silica gel, sand or borax, and through this process one has to completely cover each flower to draw out moisture.
