Chci si nechat vylisovat svatební kytici - jaké druhy jsou pro to vhodné? 🌸

I want to have a wedding bouquet pressed - what types are suitable for this? 🌸

You ask us this question very often, and that's why I decided to write here what is the most important thing when choosing a wedding bouquet that you want to have pressed as a keepsake.

But before I go into the individual list of flowers, please stick to one rule - choose flowers and their colors primarily so that you will be happy and excited about them on your wedding day. Don't worry so much about whether they can be pressed or not. We are very skilled and can already print anything today. ☺️

The very second rule, which is really very important, is the rule that if you want to have a beautiful image after the wedding, you need to make sure that all the flowers in the bouquet/in the arrangements are fresh. A florist or the given flower shop or flower farm should always help you ensure this. A fresh flower is one that has not been cut in a vase in a cooler for more than a week before the wedding. This is because the longer the flower is cut, the more it manifests itself in browning during pressing, even though at first glance it may seem that all the flowers were beautiful during the wedding. 🙏🏻

The third rule is to keep the bouquet in water as much as possible, change the water every day and cut the stems of the flowers by at least 2 cm with a sharp knife/scissors every day. It is also ideal to keep the flower in a cool place until it is sent to us, especially in the summer.

The fourth rule is the rule of early delivery to us. The sooner you send/deliver the bouquet to us personally, the better the result will be. If the wedding is on a Friday or at the weekend, it is ideal to send the bouquet on Monday morning. All this and much more, including instructions for wrapping the bouquet, will always arrive in your email after making a reservation in our booking form. 🙌🏻

And now a continuation for all brides who have an idea about a wedding bouquet, but would like to get advice on which types are pressed better and look very beautiful in pictures afterwards. 🤗

We definitely recommend having a bouquet always composed of several main larger flowers and only then adding smaller flowers to them, this will then create the right beautiful effect in the picture.

It is not possible to list all the types of flowers in the world, but I have decided to list the most common types, including our experiences with them. Below each is an illustrative photo borrowed from the Loukykvět website - of course, the given species can have many variants and colors. 😊

Those that are perfectly suitable for pressing are marked in green.

Yellow ones, which are not so suitable anymore, but if they arrive fresh, the result will still be nice.

I mark in red those that are better to avoid.


Astra - There are many types of aster, they are pressed nicely. However, if they are not too rich. We recommend simpler flowers.

Zinnia - Same as Aster, they press well if not too rich. We recommend simpler flowers and having them in water as much as possible.

Černucha - Great for pressing, but be careful, if it is not in water, it falls off quickly.

Delphinium/stračka - Ideal flower for pressing, holds colors beautifully.

Fiala - Suitable, but it rots from the stems rather quickly, it is important to change the water.

We can certainly handle it, take the list more as a recommendation and definitely send us a flower even if it contains some less suitable species. Our goal is to improve our abilities, which we succeed in, so I am absolutely sure that a pressed bouquet will make a beautiful memory for you at home for the rest of your life, no matter what kind of flowers it is.
