The Process

The Petals By Pinto Process

It’s always best to book your wedding in advance. With that said, if you forgot to book in advance don't hesitate to reach out prior to purchasing to see if we can make it work!

Step One: Book Your Preservation

Choose which products you’d like us to create using your flowers. Pick your preservations through the checkout process and choose to pay in full or a custom payment plan for an accessible, stress-free option.

Step Two: Ship or Drop Off Your Flowers

The day after your event, ship your bouquet to us using overnight/2 day shipping following the specific shipping instructions provided in your order confirmation email. OR drop off your bouquet (1-2 days after the event for best results). This saves you the added expense of shipping. The exact address for drop off/shipping in Westfield, NJ will be provided in your email confirmation once you place an order.

Step Three: Drying & Design

We will trim down the blooms that we feel will preserve the best based on the items you purchased. We will dry your flowers using our unique drying process. Blooms will dry between 4-6 weeks depending on the density of the blooms

Design is our favorite part of the process, for large block items we will send you two options to choose from.. Other smaller items are left to the designers choice of what they feel will fit best in the item

Step Four: Creation 

We pour your pieces carefully over many days to ensure the best quality product. This process takes roughly another 4-8 weeks to complete and cure.

Step Five: Final Touches

We prepare, shine, and buff your piece to get it ready to be returned to you to enjoy!

Step Six:  Shipping or Pick Up

Once your flowers are fully preserved, you will be notified of a tracking number if return shipping is selected. Or if picking up items, you will be notified via email of when you can pick up your items.

 

 

Please Note: All flowers are not created equal. Some flowers will preserve darker, especially red, pink and purple flowers. We want you to know this in advance so that you can have realistic expectations of what your final pieces will look like. Some flowers will have bruises. This is natural and is part of the process. Bruises are not visible on fresh flowers and can not be seen until they are placed in resin. We like to consider flowers with bruises as having been loved a little extra. Bubbles are also standard in resins blocks and although we do our best to remove as many bubbles as we can, they are unavoidable.
