While working with harsh chemicals throughout the process, safety comes first. We have dedicated over a year to experimenting what works best, and kept logs of various types of botanicals so that when your bouquet arrives, we know exactly how to process every petal.
Using special tools and techniques that best maintain your flowers shape and color, your blooms are professionally dried or pressed. This might seem like a simple step, but there is a technique for quality results. Drying time can take several weeks, depending on the types of flowers in your bouquet. Due to the current wedding boom, lead times are going to vary between 4-8weeks. We will maintain your flowers in this state until it's time for the next step and send an update once you're up next for the bridal awork of choice, sending a design survey.
Once your flowers are fully prepped, we will begin designs based on your design survey! You will get to work with your artist 1:1. We will make sure to include any favorite flowers, colors, or sentimental elements.
We kindly request a speedy response to our designs for approval. If we see your flowers begin to lose vibrancy we may begin the process at the artist's discretion. Space is also limited on the design table, so it's important to fill out our survey or approve our designs, especially if you have colorful blooms!
We take pride in our designs, some studios will charge extra to move things around. We don't, as we are confident you will love our artist's composition and design, as we take time with each and every block with love and attention to detail.
Please be patient, sometimes art and finding that right balance of your flowers takes time, we don't rush creativity and we hope you can see that in our work.
The preservation process requires patience, experience, and most importantly, knowledge of the science between botanicals and resin. This can take anywhere from 8-16+ hours spread across several weeks depending on the size of your block and order. Please note, these beautiful artworks are created in small layers, which is why it takes a while to complete. We are unable to meet requested deadlines or expedite orders. We are happy to provide estimated dates of completion, however we cannot promise a date simply becuase our mediums can be unpredictable. Even the weather sometimes effects things. It really is a science!
If touch-ups are necessary, it may require sanding and more layers. We call this the royal treatment. This can be very labor intensive and take several more weeks. We will keep you in the loop if this step is necessary and thank those brides in advance for understanding this is a process.
Completed artworks are hand packaged, sealed, and delivered by your flower fairy! We will print your shipping label sooner than delivery as we get our batches of beloved artworks prepared for one big shipment. Once your package is shipped, you will be notified. Special care instructions and a polishing cloth are included with your flowers' ever after. Keep a eye out for our flower fairy on your doorstep!
It's a true labor of love, this floral magic thing!
We thank you for your patience during the wedding boom and keeping update requests to a minimum so we can focus on the work. Standard turnaround for our little flower preservation industry is currently an average 4-6 months. It's a bit crazy right now, but you know what they say... go where the lines are long! All good things take time. We promise it's worth the wait and are very excited to re-unite you with your flowers!
