I’ll be honest. The thing I get asked about the most regarding my wedding? The paper flowers.
People seem to really like what I did with the paper flowers which thrills me to no end because I spent a ton of time on them.
A TON OF TIME.
So much time that I stopped counting. And got sick of the flowers. And thought I was insane for doing it.
But in the end I think it was worth it.
I love the final result. The flowers were cute, modern, and quirky.
They fit our wedding and style perfectly.
The hanging pom flowers were a late almost-last-minute decision. I started these just a couple weeks before the wedding. I knew I wanted a colorful, fun backdrop for our ceremony and thought the poms would be cute.
In retrospect, I wish I had made them bigger! I liked the small size but it wouldn’t have taken so long if they were bigger. Did I mention the paper flowers took me forever? The hanging tissue paper flowers for the ceremony backdrop took a lot of hours in those last two weeks and I had friends helping up until the day before the wedding.
Similar to the hanging tissue paper flowers I made tissue paper flowers in purple for the tables.
Those actually were the fastest flowers to make and the easiest! I loved how they looked on the tables.
But my favorite flowers of all? My paper flower wedding bouquet!
I made my bouquet out of sheet music and printed emails from Kepa from when we were following in love. Obviously this gave the bouquet a lot of sentimental value that you just can’t get from real flowers (though I do in fact LOVE real flowers).
The process of making my bouquet took FOREVER. It was the longest project because I had so many flowers in it and had no idea how to put it together when I started (tutorial coming eventually about this). In the end it looked perfect and I loved how it looked in photos.
Despite all the hours and stress over the paper flowers I looooooooved the result.
I think they made the wedding look just a little bit different and showcased a part of my skill set that I love to use but don’t use enough. Now that the wedding is over and I don’t *have* to make flowers I actually miss the process. Maybe I’ll make some type of flowers for future parties! :)
