Paper Flowers for Weddings

Sami & Isaac are one of the cutest couples ever, don’t you think?

1. Boutonniere

A paper flower boutonniere won’t wilt in high humidity or heat. Plus, it requires no water or care, so you can order one now and store until your wedding.

2. Paper Bouquet

Paper bouquets are one of my favorite handmade wedding ideas. I love flowers, but paper flowers also look pretty and will never, ever wilt. Carry your paper flower bouquet down the aisle and place in a decorative vase in your home. Talk about one fantastic way to save money and accentuate to your home!

3. Centerpiece

These simple paper flower centerpieces are easy to pull together yourself. Order a bunch of paper flowers in mix-and-match colors and styles. Pick a bunch and place in a mason jar or vase atop your reception tables.

4. Decorate the Cake Table / Wall Backdrop

Sami did a beautiful job decorating the reception space. She taped paper poms – another form of paper flower – as a creative backdrop for the cake table and around the dance floor. Check out more by Sami in her blog (she even provides a tutorial on how to make the paper poms!)

5. Paper Flower Backdrop

This paper flower backdrop wasn’t from Sami and Isaac’s wedding, but it is another idea worth the mention. Dragonfly Expression makes these amazing photo walls, ideal for photo booths. I’m swooning over one for our office.

Where to Buy Paper Flowers for Weddings

You’ve seen Sami & Isaac’s wedding for yourself and, if you’re like me, you swooned over each delicately crafted petal. If you want a bouquet, boutonniere, or paper flower centerpiece unlike anyone else’s, Chantal can make your dream a reality! We’ve had the pleasure of getting acquainted with Chantal of Dragonfly Expression over the last few years (she’s a Featured Artisan in The Marketplace, too!) and she is one amazing paper flower designer. Start here to kick-start the process for your wedding!

Happy Planning!
