Give your wedding flowers a new life by enlisting a floral preservation artist to turn the gorgeous blooms from your big day into stunning keepsakes. Here, we list five of our favorite floral preservation businesses that serve New Jersey brides. Each has their own style and offers unique items.
Keepsake Options: box (various sizes), box with wedding invite (various sizes), 4-inch ornaments
Price Range: $60-$450 (no order minimum)
What We Love: Instead of immersing the flowers in resin like most preservation artists do, Carissa, who is located in Brick, coats the flowers with thin layers of resin before placing them in an acrylic shadow box.
