Paper Flowers for Wedding Decor, Centerpieces & More

One of our favorite new trends — well, it’s been trending for awhile, but it’s still on point this season — is paper flowers as decor throughout your space. We’ve seen paper flowers along the aisle, as ceremony backdrops, at the head table, as centerpieces for receptions, adorning a cake, and more. Paper flowers are in — and they aren’t going anywhere for a long time to come.

Wedding Bouquets Made of Paper

What is it about wedding bouquets made of paper that you love? My love is multifaceted, I tell you. For starters, your wedding bouquet can be made in any color.

Your bouquet can be made in any season at any time of year with any style of flower you choose.

Each paper flower bloom is hand-molded, one-by-one: a painstaking labor of love. And it’s all made just for you. You can even pick a wedding detail and have your bouquet created in those exact colors.

Or, perhaps have one made in an array of colors that you adore.

Maybe I’m smitten because paper bouquets last forever, meaning you won’t get all sappy like I did when I eventually had to toss my bouquet in the trash.

Maybe I love ’em because they never wilt. Never fade. Never lose their luster.

A wedding bouquet made of paper just makes sense. And it makes even more sense when you have one made by someone who knows their stuff, like Chantal of Dragonfly Expression.

I love fresh flowers just like the next girl, but having a wedding bouquet made of paper doesn’t mean you have to forgo fresh at your wedding. It just means you have one less fresh bouquet to worry about.

Which leaves you more time for other things, like figuring out which of these photos you must add to your list. Or crossing this fun idea off your list.

Decorating Your Reception Hall? Try This Easy Trick!

Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m going to just go ahead and admit it: today’s feature is so gorgeous that I am considering a total revamp of our office with this easy decorating trick slathered EVERYWHERE. And then all over my bedroom. And bathroom. (Okay, I don’t think my husband would want to live in a paper flower forest, but one can dream, right?) Anyways, today we’re sharing one easy trick to decorating your reception hall. Every bride wants her reception hall to look its very best on the big day. And, let’s be honest: some reception walls can be pretty boring. Well, it’s time to dress them up. And, I promise once you see this paper flower backdrop from Dragonfly Expression, you won’t be able to un-see it… and that means you’ll want to ensconce your entire reception site with it. And that’s not a bad thing. See why…

Decorating Your Reception Hall

A paper flower backdrop is one easy trick to decorating your reception hall. It covers evenly, can be used on one wall (or adjoining walls), and adds instant elegance to any room. While paper flower backdrops can come in a variety of colors, I especially like this one in white because it makes everything else around it POP without looking too busy.
