After spendings months planning your dream wedding, it’s only fitting to purchase a few keepsakes from the day! While many couples order a large photo album to display on their coffee table or prints to hang throughout their house, there are numerous other ways to display your memories. From live paintings during the event to dried floral bouquets, we think a unique keepsake is the perfect way to remember the best day of your life. If you’re looking for a unique, yet beautifully crafted keepsake, Forever La Fleur is the perfect choice.
Forever La Fleur, owned by Abby Bengtzen, uses entirely organic methods to press fresh blooms and turn them into pieces of art that tell the story of your special day. The frames Forever La Fleur uses are handcrafted in Salt Lake City with repurposed wood and finished to highlight the raw beauty of each frame. Your florals will be displayed to perfection in timeless, yet modern designs.
Abby learned the art of pressing and preserving flowers from her Grandmother at a young age. She grew up just a few streets south of her grandmother’s house and spent many summer days there picking flowers, watching her grandmother carefully press and arrange the flowers into wall hangings and cards. Every birthday or Christmas card Abby ever received from her grandmother always had flowers pressed on the front. To no surprise, Abby still has those cards today as well as a wall hanging her grandmother made for her wedding day! How special!
Today, Abby uses what she learned watching her grandmother to create wedding keepsakes for others to cherish!
If you’re looking for a gift or keepsake that will fit into any home decor aesthetic, Forever La Fleur is for you! Abby creates organic and minimal pressed floral keepsakes to showcase the beauty of your day! Flowers are pressed for 6-8 weeks before being arranged into a modern, yet classy float frame. Couples can also choose from a range of frame sizes and bundles for single frame or gallery arrangements.
Whether you’re more modern farmhouse or mid-century modern, Forever La Fleur’s designs will complement any design style and will also never go out of style!
Couples can book their wedding date with Forever La Fleur on their website.
If you plan to move forward with a Forever La Fleur keepsake, keep this in mind: water, water, water! Designate someone to be in charge of your bouquet the entire wedding day. Protect the flowers and water them as often as possible between the photos and ceremony. And, if you’re local, have a friend or family member deliver the flowers within 24 hours. The fresher the better!
Out of state? That’s no problem! Forever La Fleur will send simple shipping instructions that should also be completed within 24 hours of the wedding day.
