Fleur a Flair has been a family business (run&owned), specializing in floral preservation and design since 1985. 


Caring for your flowers after the wedding:

(1) Please ensure that the bouquet has a water source; either pour water into the bouquet holder, or if the bouquet has natural stems, then please re-cut and place them in water. Place bouquet into a plastic bag (kitchen or dry cleaner's), and if it fits, then into a large paper grocery bag. Place this bag in a refrigerator over night (a cooler also serves well if there is not sufficient space in your refrigerator).

DO NOT FREEZE!! We cannot preserve flowers that have been in the freezer. 

(2) Please call first, but we can usually receive the bouquet anytime between 930 am and 4 pm on Mondays.  If special arrangements are made far enough in advance, it is possible flowers may be dropped off on Saturday afternoon *if we are available- we are not in every Saturday.  The fresher the flowers are when we recieve them, the better they will preserve.  If you must stop elsewhere first, please place the bouquet in a cooler - do not leave the bouquet in a hot car.

THE PROCESS:

  • We work by appointment ONLY. Give us a call @513.891.7404 to set up an appointment time to drop-off your flowers. We can also be reached via email at fafpreservation@gmail.com

    • We strongly recommend booking your drop-off with us prior to the wedding date as our schedule generally books up rather quickly and we may not be able to fit customers in at the last minute. *We do reserve the right to turn away any order that has not been booked in advance due to lacking available time slots and limited resources. 

    • We meet with each customer during drop-off and selection appointments. At the time of drop-off, no decisions about the final product will need to be made. Preservation costs vary depending on number of flowers as well as freshness of flowers. The preservation process will take one month to complete.

  • If you are booking your preservation prior to the wedding you will save $25.00 off your final display piece. Otherwise, a standard size bouquet will run $175.00(+tax). If your bouquet is larger than most the cost of preservation will vary between $200-$250(+tax). If you are not wanting to recreate the look of your bouquet (for example: a frame filled with just the flowers {no stems} or flowers accenting a photo/invitation) you may preserve half the bouquet for $100(+tax).
  •  
  • We also offer individual flower preservations. 
    • 20 flowers= $100.00 ($5.00 per flower)

    • 12 flowers= $75.00 ($6.25 per flower)

    • 5 flowers= $50.00 ($10.00 per flower)

    • 1-4 flowers =$15.00 per flower

*The preservation fee is a separate cost from any shadowbox (or other items) you would like to display your flowers in. This is because we preserve each flower individually, removing each flowerhead from the stems, using various adhesives, and submerge everything in our perfected formula for one month. Once the month-long process is complete and flowers are removed from the formula, some may require color enhancing tools, and all flowers require proper sealant. The preservation process alone will take anywhere from 6-10 hours per order. Due to our high volume of orders, some preservations may take closer to 2 months to fully complete the preservation process.

  • Please allow us at least one-month from your drop-off date before you give us a call to schedule a selection appointment at your convenience. We will give a courtesy call or email to let you know when the flowers are completed.
  • Our personal selection appointments allow customers to sit down with the designer to see the flowers after the preservation process is complete. We then lay out your preserved flowers and will show you the various options of mat-choice color&texture, frame styles/colors, UV protective and non-reflective glass options, and other display options that we offer. We will work with you to find what fits best into your home and your price range!

-We do custom order all of our frames and products, so each item is made special for you! All shadowboxes are built and made per customer, but this does unfortunately add time to the process. This can take up to 3 months just for us to receive a frame shipment.

Please allow for 4-6 months after you have come in for your selection and placed your order with Fleur a` Flair. You will receive a call (and email if you have provided one) letting you know as soon as your order is complete! *However, due to such a high volume of orders we will not be held responsible to make continuous reminder calls for customers to schedule a pick-up date.

For any additional questions please refer to our email FAFpreservation@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you and creating a memory that you can look at fondly over the years!
