TO CHERISHED MEMORIES
Just Brides offer a service to all brides throughout Australia to have their wedding bouquets pressed and redesigned in a modern frame as an organic keepsake.
The pressed blooms when framed have a soft and whimsical appeal that reflects on a century old craft of flower preservation. Each frame is designed in our Perth studio and exclusive to brides Australia wide.
Purchase gifts directly from our gift shop or make a reservation to have your bouquet preserved.
Make a Reservation
A reservation is our preferred option to ensure we are available to preserve your bouquet. We also understand that preserving may be a last minute decision. So many brides have told us they didn't realise how much they would love there flowers and are desperate to preserve them. It is very rare that we would ever want to say no, however your reservation will give you priority in the queue to have your order completed sooner.
The cost of the reservation goes towards the total cost of your order. Once your place has been secured we will be in touch to discuss which preserving options (Pressing or Resin) you would like to order.
An invoice will be emailed to you with your preserving order and the remaining balance, less the reservation cost. Payment in full is required prior to you collecting your order.
Pressed flower craft consists of drying flower petals and leaves in a flower press to flatten and retain colour with minimal fading. Pressing flowers makes them appear flat, and there is often a change in colour, ranging from faded colours to a greater intensity of vibrant colours.
Flower bouquets are best delivered to us the next day or two after your wedding day while they are still retaining some freshness, to our studio in Rossmoyne, Perth.
Just Brides also accept interstate bouquets from brides. Even though they are not always in their optimal condition when they arrive we have always been able to save a lot and create some beautiful keepsakes.
Please allow 10 to 12 weeks for completion of your order especially during peak wedding season.
Due to the natural drying process of flowers it is expected for flowers to change colour tone, which is unavoidable. Just the same if you were to hang your fresh bouquet for drying, you would see the change in colour as they dried out.
White flowers tend to go more ivory, the pink flowers have the tendency to change to a mauve shade and the peachy colour flowers become pinker. You will need to consider the colour changes as the flowers will no longer be the exact match to your bouquet once dried.
When customers deliver their bouquets to press, we press all flowers supplied and then hand select the best from the bunch for our customised frames. That's when we get great pleasure designing a unique piece of handcrafted artwork. We will create up to 3 beautiful designs for you to select your favourite before continuing with the final piece.
Please see our Floral Art range for prices & framing options.
When you receive your bouquet on the day of your wedding it will be sitting in a water source happily drinking until its time to have pre-wedding photos and leave for the ceremony. Once the bouquet leaves the water, the stems will seal over preventing it from drinking water again.
That's why we advise you to re-cut the flower stems (1 cm off) if you can at the end of your wedding night. Not everyone remembers to do this but if you can nominate someone to take your bouquet, cut the stems and place it in a vase, your flowers will have the chance to drink again and re-hydrate.
