Yes, we do! With a few exceptions. White flowers are extremely fragile and require a lot more attention when it comes to pressing. White flowers tend to brown easily, turning creme and blonde instead of bright white.

If you have an all white bouquet we require that you have a variety of white flowers and greenery. We don't accept bouquets of just one type of flower (ex. long stem white roses.) If you have a bouquet like this, we'd love to work with your flowers using our dried shadow box option! Drying white flowers instead of pressing them allows them enough air to retain their brilliance a bit better.

The best way to describe this is to show a few examples! We will not accept any bouquets for fresh pressed arrangements if there are white flowers and no greenery. Of course there are always a few exceptions so if you have questions about your specific bouquet then please reach out via email!

We press almost all types of flowers! However, there are a few that we don't work with for certain reasons. Below is a list of flowers and greens that we don't include in final arrangements.

  • Giant Lilies. Lilies are quite wishy-washy when it comes to flower preservation. Because they have such a high water content, they tend to brown even before entering the press. We will press your lilies if you want, but they might not turn out how you expect!
  • Seeded Eucalyptus. We loooove the look of fresh seeded eucalyptus, but the seeds are too thick to fit between the panes of glass. We can use the leaves, but the seeds are removed before being pressed.
  • Poppy Pods - We can not include poppy pods in the final design due to their thickness.
  • Scabiosa Pods - We can not include scabiosa pods in the final design due to their thickness.
  • Any type of thick branches. We occasionally see branches like curly willows included in bouquets and they are stunning! Unfortunately, branches don't press thin enough to be included in the final arrangement. If you'd like them to be a part of your frame, we'd suggest going with a shadow box arrangement instead.

Yes! We can indeed press succulents. Because of the extra time and attention they need, we may charge an additional $20 succulent fee depending on the amount your bouquet contains (typically 3+). If you would rather not pay the fee, then we would suggest removing them from your bouquet before sending it to us. Repot the succulents and enjoy them in your home instead!

As long as you take care of your frame, your flowers will last forever! But please be aware that your blooms WILL fade overtime. We don't use any dies, preservatives, or chemical enhancements during the preserving process. We love what Mother Nature does to the aging of the flowers and we believe it tells a beautiful story. Make sure to keep your flowers away from direct sunlight and away from any humid areas (ex. the bathroom). If you follow those steps, your flowers should stay around forever. Happy day!

Absolutely! Whether you've been drying your flowers for a few months or they've been sitting in your mom's basement for three years (lookin' at you, big sis), our shadow box option is the perfect fit. Click here to head to our dried flower shadow box page for more information.

Yes! You have two options.

  • You can choose to hang dry the flowers yourself which is super easy and only takes a few weeks (information on that will be sent after placing your order).
  • Or you can send your fresh flowers to us with rushed next day shipping and we can dry them for you. This will add an extra $175 onto your order (not including the price of you shipping the flowers to us.)

We strive to include each flower, but more often than not, there isn't enough space for every single element of the bouquet. Our specific design style avoids overcrowding the frame, instead spacing out the pieces to create a true work of art. If a client requests to have the leftover flowers returned with the final piece, we are always happy to do so! However, in the absence of such a request, we add them to our stockpile for future reuse.

If you're out of state, there are a few extra steps when it comes to getting your flowers to us but no worries, we work with out of state clients all the time!

When you book with us there is an optional add on for a "shipping kit" where we send you a package full of supplies needed to ship your flowers to us. Regardless of if you bought the kit or not, we will send out a detailed video tutorial after you purchase on how to best package your flowers for safe shipping.

Fresh flowers will need to ship with Next Day Shipping and dried flowers can just ship standard.

When checking out, you will be charged for shipping. This does not include the cost for you to send the flowers to us. Just simply the cost of us sending the final product back to you. P.S. When we send the final product back it will be sent with a signature required upon delivery. If this is a problem please let us know right away.

The shipping kit is simply a box of all of the supplies that you will need to send your flowers back to us after the big day! A few of the things include, a prepaid return label, biodegradable packing peanuts, a bouquet preserver, eco friendly plastic bags, and a few extra surprises. These can all be found on your own at your local shipping store but some people find it nice to have the whole thing sent to them in one piece to take a bit of stress off of their big day.

The kit will be sent out to you the Tuesday the week before your wedding. Make sure to open up the kit when it is received.

*If you order the shipping kit you must notify us with any sort of change of address 2 weeks prior to your event*

Currently, we are unable to offer international shipping for fresh flowers. However, we have two alternative options available:

1. **Dried Flower Shadow Box:** You can choose to hang dry your flowers and then send them to us once they are completely dry. We will use these dried flowers to create a beautiful shadow box for you. To explore our shadow box designs, please visit https://flowersofthepress.myshopify.com/collections/dried-flowers

2. **Bouquet Recreation:** Another option is to work with us to recreate your bouquet. Simply fill out the form at https://flowersofthepress.myshopify.com/pages/recreations
with your details and attach a photo of your bouquet. We will collaborate with our local wholesaler to source fresh flowers for your project. These fresh blooms will then be pressed and preserved to craft a unique art piece representing your special day.

We have recently expanded our services to accommodate international orders, so please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Make sure to check out our terms and conditions specific to international orders and let us know what questions you have. We're here to assist you! https://flowersofthepress.myshopify.com/pages/terms-conditions

Of course! We have drop off & pickup locations in Midvale and Logan, UT. When placing your order hit the "drop off/pickup" option during checkout. We will send you additional information once your order is placed.

No, we will not ship back any glass vases, pendants, charms, or other items that may be used to hold/decorate your flower stems. Make sure to remove these from your bouquet prior to shipping!

Although we take great care to package our pieces with as much protection as possible, we understand that damage may occur during shipping.

In the event that this occurs, we ask that you leave the piece as is, send us photos and an email and then reseal the box. Once you notify us we will send you a prepaid return label, repair the frame at our shop, and send it back to you as soon as possible.

We suggest booking within 6 months of your event to ensure we can get you all the updated information and product options. We can take your order up to 3 days after the event, if it is any later than that then we ask that you send us a photo of the current state of your flowers and we can determine if it is still in workable condition.

All of our policies can be found here! Make sure to read over the terms and conditions before placing your order, please and thank you!

At the moment we do not offer any sort of flower pressing tutorial or DIY tips. We are aware that there is a high demand, so we are planning on creating a series of videos that outline the basics of flower pressing as a hobby. Follow us on social media @flowersofthepress or sign up to be on our mailing list to be the first to know if we ever release tutorials!

Questions such as what type of glue we use, where we source our paper from, and how we maintain the vibrancy of our flowers will all be addressed in our upcoming courses. Follow us on social media @flowersofthepress or sign up to be on our mailing list to be the first to know if we ever release tutorials!

We have designed our frames hand-in-hand with a local framer here in Logan, Utah. They are made out of a beautiful maple hardwood. We don't sell our frames alone because they've been custom designed by us for the purpose of flower preservation.
