Packing & Shipping Your Bouquet
Time is of the essence!
After your event, it's important to package and ship your bouquet or floral arrangement quickly in order to preserve its beauty. We've got you covered with easy steps for packing the flowers correctly - and if anything is unclear just send us a message through our chat feature or drop us an email! With overnight or express shipping recommended by carriers of your choice, getting those blooms safely delivered is hassle-free.
Here's what you'll need to ship your bouquet
One Carboard Box
You’ll need a single box – just a little larger than your actual arrangement of flowers or bouquet.
We recommend either crumpled newspaper, crumpled wrapping paper or Styrofoam packing peanuts. Please don’t use bubble wrap, plastic bags or plastic products to package your flowers.
Ordinary packing tape you’d use to seal and ship any other package.
Mementos, Photos, Invitations, etc.
Please include any mementos, photos, invitation(s), program, prayer cards, favors or other special items you’d like included in your keepsake. Make sure you protect these items with cardboard cushioning if necessary and within a plastic bag to keep them dry.
Packing your flowers to ship to Bouquet Casting Co
To ensure your flowers reach Bouquet Casting Co in perfect condition, it's best to plan a trip to the shipping carrier as soon after packing them away in the box. This will minimize their time spent cooped up and maximize freshness when they arrive at their destination!
First, make a nest for your flowers in the bottom of the box with your crumpled newspaper or packing peanuts.
Now, remove the flowers from the fridge or wherever they've been kept and place them in that nest. Fill the box to the top with the remainder of packing peanuts or crumpled newspaper, making sure you fill the sides of the box with packing material as well. Just as you would package a gift to send to your friend across the country, the goal is to make sure the bouquet inside the box doesn’t bump around in the box, causing damage.
Finally, close the box and seal it with your packing tape.
