Hey, lovelies! Today we’re talking about the most beautiful paper roses, probably one of my favorite wedding trends right now. It seems like many brides place an importance on using the most creative wedding decorations for the ceremony and reception. I was the same way while planning my wedding and thought, who wants to have the same wedding decor as everyone else? I craved creative wedding alternatives and decorations to set my decor apart from others. It’s fun to find another way to personalize your day and these paper roses totally fit the bill!
One of the trending wedding alternatives right now is paper flower bouquets and it is easy to see why. Paper roses are more affordable than fresh flowers and they are easier to care for than fresh flowers, due to these bouquets requiring no water or care.
Because paper flowers will not wilt or fade, they are exceptional bouquets in hot and humid summer weddings and icy winter weddings. Furthermore, paper bouquets are handmade in any color and wedding theme, so you won’t need fancy flowers flown in from across the globe for your big day just to coordinate with your decor. It seems like the most popular reason brides choose paper roses is because they last forever. You’ll never throw it away! This is especially relevant for couples who crave eco-friendly wedding ideas. Keeping the bouquet and not tossing it in the trash is probably the top reason why I adore them!
The paper flowers we’ve spotted at Diddlebug are true works of art. Charlene, designer and shop owner, handcrafts these paper roses from recycled book pages and cardstock in vibrant hues for one-of-a-kind bouquets. We’ve rounded up our favorite bouquets to share with you today: which one is your favorite?
Paper Roses + Wedding Bouquets
Handcrafted paper roses like these are incredible. Let’s kick off the showcase with this purple flower bouquet made of paper roses, purple hand-cut flowers with rhinestone centers, small white paper flowers, and a few green paper leaves. It looks stunning!
You may have seen paper flower bouquets like these, but these are exceptionally unique. They’re 100% handmade, too!
Paper Roses Last Forever
Perhaps the most noteworthy reason why paper roses rule is that you can display your bouquet after the wedding day in a vase! They will look perfect forever.
Custom Color Paper Bouquets
Charlene from Diddlebug can create custom roses to coordinate with your wedding colors. Here’s a bouquet with book page flowers and red paper roses for a red and ivory color palette.

It seems like hot pink is a favorite shade to pair with the book page flowers because it really pops! This chic paper flower bouquet is hand-crafted from a burst of hot pink paper roses and recycled book pages.
Book Paper Roses
These chic paper roses are crafted of book pages. What an awesome addition to your book themed wedding!
Themed Paper Roses
Because so many couples are choosing clever pop-culture inspired bouquets, Diddlebug caters to any theme of your choice. You can get paper flowers turned into themed bouquets from Star Wars to Travel Themed Map Bouquets to Dr. Who — even Harry Potter!
These Harry Potter wedding bouquets are even styled according to “House” colors. So cool!
This paper bouquet is ideal for Dr. Who fans and has a screwdriver as a makeshift bouquet handle.
Almost every couple who loves globetrotting chooses this arrangement because it is made from a real paper map. Another way to add a personal twist to your bouquet is to order custom paper flowers of your favorite place on the map (maybe where you met, your proposal spot, or where you plan to go on your honeymoon).
Check out the beautiful “something blue” handle and hint of lace and tulle!
For Star Wars lovers, this bouquet has paper flowers and a lightsaber as its handle!
Paper Rose Boutonniere
Because the boutonniere needs to coordinate with your bouquet, these paper roses can be made into a chic bout.
Flower Girl Wand
Your flower girl bouquet needs to also look similar to the style of your bouquet. As a result of this emerging trend, Diddlebug makes these sweet flower girl wands made of paper roses as coordinating pieces for weddings.
This wand is lightweight and can be made from similar flowers to coordinate with your bouquet. Because each bouquet is custom-made, her flower girl wand can be made of pages from her favorite book or crafted from sheets of paper in her favorite colors. In addition, Charlene adds ribbons to the wand to make it more fun to carry down the aisle.
In conclusion, paper roses make a really beautiful alternative to fresh flower bouquets. In addition to the reasons above (any color, no wilting, no need to throw away), paper roses are also a popular choice for brides who have allergies. Since these blooms are made of paper, you won’t have to worry about red itchy eyes or a runny nose the day of your wedding, which is rather troublesome for brides who are sensitive to flowers or pollen. Most of all, no two bouquets are exactly the same due to their handcrafted quality, so your paper flowers will be totally unique!
