Your bridal bouquet is a special part of your wedding day. At Wild Orchid we specialize in preserving your flowers as a keepsake to enjoy for years to come. We also offer custom framing for your flowers, keepsakes and mementoes. We have been preserving flowers for all occasions for 20 years. Wild Orchid Floral Design has been featured on CJOH Regional Contact.

Flower Preserving

Your flowers are carefully preserved using a silica drying process.  The preserving process takes approximately 3-5 weeks depending on the type of flowers in your bouquet.  This careful drying process helps the flowers keep their natural shape and colour.

The cost of preserving your bouquet is $45 (Canadian).  Mother's corsages or groom's boutonniere are preserved at no extra charge when preserving a bridal bouquet.

Delivery of Flowers

For best results, flowers should be delivered for preserving within 48 hours of your wedding.  Call in advance to make your appointment.  We are available to receive your flowers 7 days a week by appointment.

After your wedding or event, place your flowers in the refrigerator sealed in a plastic bag until they can be delivered for preserving. Adding some water to your flowers will help to keep them fresh until delivery.

Flowers may be transported in warm weather.  Please call for instructions.


Framing your preserved flowers is a great way to display and protect your bouquet.

Frames come in many different shapes, sizes, finishes and design options to suit your décor.  Frames can be hung on the wall or displayed on an easel.

Frames, boxes and domes are priced by size and range from $75 to $700 (Canadian dollars).

See the Framing page for further information.
