What is the process like?

The preservation process typically spans 6 to 9 weeks, accounting for pressing and drying your flowers. However, slight variations may occur depending on the types of flowers and foliage in your bouquet.

From start to finish, including pressing, reconstruction, and framing, the entire process usually takes around 6 to 8 months. Each frame receives careful attention to detail, ensuring the creation of a stunning and enduring memento of your cherished flowers.

What is the best time to hand over my flowers for preservation?

For optimal results, fresh flowers should be handed over for preservation promptly. Once flowers begin to wilt or discolor, these changes will become more pronounced when pressed and will be preserved in that state.

We recommend delivering your flowers within 2 to 3 days after your event, ensuring they are at their peak condition. Drop-offs are accepted anytime between Sunday to Friday following your event.

To avoid disappointment, please book your preferred drop-off date and time early. Kindly note that drop-offs are strictly by appointment only.

Can I still press my bouquet if it is already dried?

Regrettably, once your bouquet has dried, it cannot undergo the pressing process. Dried flowers tend to be brittle and will disintegrate under pressure.

However, we provide recreation services if you wish to create a flower frame out of the same types of flowers used in your bouquet.

Will the colors of my preserved flowers change over time?

The pigments in the flowers will naturally degrade over time due to exposure to light, humidity, and oxygen. To mitigate color fading, we employ a specially designed seal for our frames, strategically placed to maintain optimal conditions within the frame.

Please keep in mind that different types of flowers fade at varying rates, and environmental factors play a role in this process. To extend the shelf life of your frame, we recommend storing it away from direct sunlight and in a cool, dry environment.

What types of flowers should I use?

Always try to have a good variety of foliage and flowers in your bouquet to get the best results. 

As flowers are a natural product, their colours may undergo changes during the preservation process. Brighter flowers tend to retain their colours better even though they may look a few shades darker than its original state. For example, a red flower may press into a darker shade of purple, while a bright yellow flower may press into an orange shade.

Light-colored flowers, particularly white/light pink roses, may undergo a natural browning process when pressed, and fade faster as compared to other types of flowers.

Here is a list of some commonly used flowers that do not work well with our pressing methods:

  • Lisianthus
  • Calla lilies
  • White, Ivory, Light pink roses
  • Chrysanthemums
