SENTIMENTAL FLOWER CONFETTI DIY
Libby, a lovely friend of mine from across the pond shared a fantastic idea with me just after valentines day and I am so excited to share it with all of you too. She told me to dry out my valentines day bouquet as well as all other flowers I receive or buy before our wedding and save them to put in with our wedding confetti. I love this idea for so many reasons but most of all, because I think it's incredibly romantic.
I love the idea of having memories tied up in our wedding confetti. Some of the petals raining down on us as we walk down the aisle for the first time as man and wife will hold special meaning to us.
This is something that is so easy to do and I encourage you to do the same if you plan on having floral confetti at your wedding.
I am taking it a step further and documenting the different flowers we will be adding to our confetti here and telling the story behind each bouquet that's added to our confetti but first...
how to dry out your flowers
Either let the flowers dry out in the arrangement, this really works the best for the roses. You can also clip them out of the bouquet with a pair scissors and lay them flat to dry close to a heat source which will help them dry out quicker. I put mine on a tea towel on a shelf close to our register. Once they are dry place them into a little baggie to store them until your special day.

The first batch of flowers I added to our sentimental flower confetti came from the bouquet of flowers Nick got me from Celsia Florals for Valentines Day. They always put together the most beautiful bouquets! Nick had them sent to my office. Part of me loves it when he does this and the other part of me is so embarrassed when I am walking back to my desk with a huge bouquet of flowers.
