I was a maid of honor a few weeks back and had my best friends bouquet made into some resin art. I had a tray, coasters, and ring holders made. To me I liked that idea better than the clear box because it’s something you can use every day. Here is the ring holder:

I had flowers from my grandmothers funeral turned into pendants for all the women in my family. I think that would be a more “practical” use then preserving the entire bouquet in a box to collect dust. Simply my two cents...

Do it! If you’re worried about money, you can probably do a DIY yourself with the flowers (just buy a shadow box from a craft store). I’ve done it before with a bouquet of flowers

I decided not to and hung it to dry. Sits in a vase now. My SIL had hers preserved and mounted into a special frame. It doesn’t look all that special to me and I didn’t want to spend the money. Love the ring holder/coaster idea.

Where do you find a box big enough? I’ve been looking for years.

I didn’t do this and have never regretted it. The photos though- I love those.

Best wishes and congrats to you both!

How many woman are still regularly wearing heels in the office? I’ve found that my office is much more casual than is was pre-covid but still need to look presentable. I am tall and in returning to my pre covid work wardrobe I’m realizing how much of my clothing I need to wear heels with - either because pants are too long or it just looks odd with flats. I feel weird walking around in heels when the other women are more casual. Should I stay in line with what others are wearing or are heels ok?

Really low (day 1 of my periods) andI’ve been stressing today on things that are outside my control. Have my birthday coming up, and i’ll be 35 soon. No bf, no man, no marriage in sight.

Have been alone cooped up at home for more than a year now with no end in sight thanks to COVID. Dating is bust too. So all in all really lonely. Any words of encouragement?

It is absolutely insane to me how recruiter ghosting is acceptable in the world of working professionals. I don’t care how busy they are. They seem to respond really promptly to all of my emails, but the second I am no longer of use to them, they’re too busy to fire off a ten word email. Sending one more email letting me know that I’m not being considered for a position does not take long. And after I took time out of my day to interview, it is the absolute least they can do.
