Memories Preserved prides itself in making each enclosure a unique one-of-a-kind remembrance.
Enclosures that do not include freeze-dried flowers
Enclosures that include freeze-dried flowers
Initially you will be asked only for a deposit towards the freeze-drying ($75 for a bridal bouquet – enclosure may also be ordered at this point if it works better for you).
Once the flowers are dried you will be contacted and an appointment set (within one month of being told your blooms are done drying), to discuss how you want to display your blooms.
When the enclosure is ordered an additional deposit is required and the balance is due when your finished piece is picked up or shipped.
Enclosure options are limited only by the imagination and therefore it is impossible to give a set price that would cover all the options. However, several “packaged” enclosure options are listed below.
Except for a few, most “case” options are not “packaged priced” because it is too hard to do so without knowing what we are enclosing (a collection of how many pieces, how much freeze-drying etc.) and the amount of time to complete the desired design.
Please feel free to request your special touch being added or for something totally unique.
When you come in (or via phone/internet) for your design consultation, we will explore the options available for the type of design you are looking for as well as the costs involved and I will get a sense of your style.
A copy with the enclosure, design, and maximum or exact costs listed will be offered to you before you leave.
The “package prices” below include the freeze-drying, enclosure, designing, etc. – an all inclusive price. (shipping not included).

Twisted gold, silver, or black wire & acrylic stands also available at $4 ea.
Higher quality acrylic ornament (clearer, more scratch resistant) add $7
Freeze-drying charges, except for package options, are done on a per bloom basis and depend on the type & size of bloom.
Many of the greens and fillers (baby’s breath, fern etc.) can be treated without additional charge although a few do require additional processing done for a minimal charge.
Your freeze-drying charge will be discounted for enclosed blooms – the freeze-drying charge for many enclosed bridal bouquets is around $100.
The total cost for drying, designing, and enclosing (total charges) a bridal bouquet varies depending on the number of flowers, number of items included, design complexity and (mostly) size & type of enclosure along with available options (UV protection, suede mats, Museum glass, etc.)
Total bridal bouquet enclosure costs tend to range between $300-600 (see samples above).

Gerber Daisies run $2.75 – $6.00
Carnations $1.50 -$3.50
