10 Pretty Paper Flower Ideas and DIYs to Turn Your Wedding Into a Magical Garden
We’re obsessed with incorporating paper flowers into a ceremony and reception for a fresh, romantic feel. These 10 paper flower ideas and DIYs are sure to help your imagination blossom with possibilities.
DIY Paper Wedding Bouquet
Let’s face it: drying real flowers never quite works out the way you’d like it to. They get brittle, lose their color and end up getting crushed in a box. If you’d like to keep your bouquet as a forever keepsake, we’re into the idea of paper flowers. This DIY bouquet is feminine, beautiful and looks like the real thing (minus the wilting).
DIY Crepe Paper Flower Garland
These delicate blossoms would look so pretty strung on a wooden rod as a ceremony backdrop or dessert table accessory. Change the colors to suit your own wedding’s theme for a truly customized look.
Festive Chair Accessories
These brightly colored blooms are the perfect way to turn your wedding reception into a full-on fiesta. We love the variety of sizes, shapes and styles arranged together on the backs of chairs (shown here) to add an unexpected burst of color to your dinner tables.
Candy Colored Floral Fans
Whether it’s for your bridal shower or ceremony backdrop, these extra large floral fans provide a major dose of drama to any environment. Opt for all one color if you’re going for something more understated or try them all together, as pictured here, for a more vibrant vibe.
DIY Paper Flower Wreath
Make a pair of these eclectic wreaths to hang on the doors of the barn at your farm wedding for an added touch of cute to your rustic wedding.
Dramatic Red Floral Backdrop
For a lush, garden feel, these bright red blooms are exactly what you need. DIY a whole pile of these paper flowers and green leaves to create a tropical paradise around your guest book table, at the altar, or near the dance floor. Your guests will no doubt be selfie-ing themselves nearby all night long.
Wedding Favor Boxes
We love the idea of adding a bright bloom to a gift box if you’re sending your guests off with a bite of something sweet or a personalized trinket. They’ll no doubt love the wrapping as much as the present inside!
Paper Flower Centerpiece
Dare we say the paper flowers in this centerpiece are prettier than the real thing?! How gorgeous are they?! Completely delicate and dreamy— imagine a row of these tiny arrangements lined up on a reclaimed wood with twinkle lights hanging overhead. Perfection.
Paper Poppy Escort Cards
Give your guests a pop of color with a poppy escort card like this one. They’re simple but so eye-catching and we bet you’ll see a lot of women with one behind their ear as they get down on the dance floor later that night!
