BUT…knowing I wanted to do something special with our wedding flowers, I decided to make a decision today. So I Googled it, of course. I debated a shadow box, but that seemed too obvious, and I wasn’t sure how my bouquet would fit in one. Plus, I’m also not sure how I feel about having a dry, now brownish, crunchy looking bouquet hanging in a box on my wall.¬†

So then I came across a picture of some random looking flower petals in a glass container of some sort. I tried Googling other similar ideas but with “wedding” in the search, and I couldn’t find any other wedding bouquets or flowers in glass containers like I pictured in my mind. Either way, I took the idea and ran with it!

I went to Walmart, Target, TJMaxx (twice), The Dollar Tree, and Michael’s, comparing glass containers, vases, jars, etc. Somewhere along the way, I thought about incorporating the cork from our champagne bottle/wedding toast as well as my mom’s wedding dress lace that was wrapped around my bouquet. I ran home, grabbed the cork, and kept looking for appropriately sized glass containers that would fit the cork.

Jack pot! I found a big glass jug with another cork (easily¬†removable) that fit the bill. I purchased it with my Michael’s 40% off coupon (duh) for $6.53 – success!¬†
