Real Wedding Paper Flower Inspiration

Posted September 25, 2012 | 6 Comments

Hello and Happy Tuesday! We know the idea of using paper flowers in your wedding (as bouquets, boutonnieres, aisle decor, and more) and seeing it come to fruition are two very different things. Today, we’re bridging the gap between the two with Real Wedding paper flower ideas to inspire your look. Unlike fresh flowers, paper flowers last forever, never wilt, can be custom-coordinated with your wedding palette, and are always in season. Read on to see one couple’s Real Wedding reality and find out where to get paper flowers of your own. Enjoy!

Real Wedding Paper Flower Inspiration

Chantal of Dragonfly Expression is nothing short of a paper flower genius! When she had the opportunity to work with a bride-to-be on her unique wedding vision, Chantal happily jumped on board and the result was a beautifully coordinated wedding with an underlying peacock theme. The bride’s paper flower bouquet contained purples, greens, blues, and browns.

The bridesmaids carried a similar bouquet in a smaller size:

The peacock wedding theme was carried throughout the decor, including these paper flower place cards:

We think she did a beautiful job (and Flashes Of Life Photography captured them beautifully).

    So lovely, practical, and much cheaper than the real version. Plus they’ll last for life! Great idea!

    I attended this wedding and these are the exact colors that i wanted to do for my own. These flowers are super easy to make if you have a cricut. It was a beautiful wedding.
