The Process

Step One: Reserve Your Beautiful Blooms!

So you’re interested in bouquet preservation, awesome! Go ahead and fill out my contact form and I will get back to you on availability and answer any questions you have. You can also simply reserve your date by ordering the items you want.  I will contact you the week of the wedding or other event to coordinate drop-off if you are local to Arizona.

We can preserve both your fresh or already dried flowers. We are also able to source flowers to help create your custom piece.

Special moments to preserve include; an engagement, wedding, birthday, graduation, or also a loss of a loved one.

We recommend getting in touch with us as soon as you can to reserve your date. As we can only take a certain number of bookings per week, booking in advance is required for peak summer/fall dates. You need to understand that it takes my mold maker a MINIMUM of 30 days for turnaround. If you are booking late, you need to remember that everything about what we do is commissioned and customized. Please don't pressure us on timeframes; I am more than happy to recommend an out of state artist that might be a more suited fit for you.

I do not mind accepting late bookings but you need to understand and expect wait times. I am more than happy to help you but I expect and demand your patience if we are going to work together. Space on my calendar is extremely limited for a reason. 

To book and hold any future dates without ordering, we require your name, event date and a $50.00 non-refundable retainer to reserve your spot. This can be sent directly to your artist through Venmo @sarasikra or @beautifulbloomsaz.

There is a $50 deposit required for any last minute orders/drop-offs. This is non-negotiable and non-refundable. This deposit is needed to source materials needed to preserve your bouquet on short notice. Last minute orders are considered any orders that are not booked in advance at least 30 days prior to your requested date. Why? Because I need help covering the costs of materials needed to first preserve your bouquet or if needed, creating a new mold for your order. Please be considerate and realistic with your expectations. 

Date change? No problem. If you are postponing or have an unexpected change with your event just send us a message and we are more than happy to accommodate to your new date.

Step Two: Wedding/Event Time 

The sooner I can get your flowers, the better. Next day drop offs are awesome, but I can take them within a few days of the wedding. If you aren’t dropping off the next day, make sure you’re swapping out the water in your vase with fresh water. Your final product choices are due at drop off, this is to ensure that I dry enough flowers for what you want. You can always ask later if I’ve dried enough to add on anything extra, but no promises. I am not a storage facility and can only preserve what is needed for your order. 

Step Three: Preserving Your Flowers

Once your flowers have been received we begin our drying process. Each flower type is unique so drying time varies and they can take from 2-4 months to be fully dried and ready to preserve in resin. 

After the flowers are fully dried we begin putting together your custom pieces. All flowers are preserved with the highest quality products and the utmost care. This process for each piece your order takes between 8-14 months depending on how many layers are needed to cover your arrangement and the number of items you have ordered; so please do the math when ordering multiple items and be realistic with your expectations on turnaround time. I cannot control the weather or the time of year you dropped off. Sending me complaints via email about the wait does not make me work faster and I will refer you back to this paragraph, especially if you have not booked a year in advance, or paid a deposit. (If you want to be bumped up to the front of the line, you need to pay me to do it.) 

We send an email prior to preserving your flowers with design layouts and options. This way you can rest assure your design reflects your personal taste and style.

Step Four: The Design

Once your flowers are dry, I will design and send you a layout for your block. I only send layouts for blocks and large trays; you’ll just have to trust me on the smaller items! Once you’ve approved your layout, I can get started.

Step Five: The Pour 

Pouring the resin will take MONTHS of hard work (8-14). Resin needs to be poured in layers to avoid burning your flowers; I take my time to make sure your precious flowers are taken care of! 

Step Six: Finishing Touches

Once your pieces are done, I can take them out of the molds and do any extra finishing steps that are required. This requires hours of physical labor. Sanding and polishing takes a lot out of me. These weeks are hard on my body. Please be respectful and understand that there are days where I need to take a break because I am physically exhausted. 

Step Seven: Pickup or Shipping Your Items

When everything is ready, I’ll send you some pictures and let you know that they’re ready! I can ship out of state as needed on a case by case basis. I will no longer allow for the pickup of orders with the exception of pressed frames or large customized pieces.
