Thinking of a unique and awesome way to add lots of color to your wedding day? Why not use an array of paper florals to your lush arrangements with some wonderful forms of paper to complete the details? I know, fresh flowers are a wedding staple, but this is a way to make your day exceptional. For couples looking for something a little different, paper flowers offer a unique way to add personality, playfulness and bright pops of color to your wedding décor. Why not personalize your day with floral vines decorating the ceremony aisle and the backdrop around the wedding party at the reception? You can also use paper flowers from bouquets to a paper wall using larger-than-life stems at the reception. And the best thing about paper florals, they will last longer than the wedding. So plan on keeping them for a long time.
Let’s start with the bridal bouquet. You can go wild with color here. Tie your paper flowers in with the colors you’ve chosen for your wedding party. Then fashion your bridesmaid bouquets after “your” gorgeous bridal bouquet. I’ve even included a picture of a paper steam punk bouquet. You will find all kinds of floral designs on Pinterest with instructions. Pick your favorite flowers and create the bouquet of your dreams.
Many brides choose to create a wonderful flower wall that can be used both at the ceremony and reception. If using two-by-fours as your base, make sure you make your wall in sections that can be easily attached together. Some people choose to make their wall on fabric. This is a much lighter creation, but tends to be more delicate and needs to be handled with care.
If you do paper floral centerpieces, this will highlight your wedding colors and pull the reception together. Each table would be outstanding with the same flowers used by the bride and bridesmaids. Even the groomsmen could be tied-in with boutonnieres made to match the bouquets and centerpieces. If you want to go over-the-top, why not stick a long stem paper flower in the bow that’s tied around each chair. This could be used as your wedding favor to each guest.
Many couples are using a great photo or hand-painted picture instead of the traditional guestbook. Why not dress up the frame with paper flowers to remind you of your wonderful day. You can also set some frames around, maybe at your remembrance table that have some matching flowers to tie everything together. There’s so many different ideas for paper florals to personalize your wedding. Let me help you think of ways to make your day special.
