I’ve already made up my mind that we are having paper flowers.
That was an easy decision. They are cheaper, easy to control, able to keep the bouquets, and fun for me to make. Being the creative girl that I am it was a no brainer.
But I’ve reached a point where I need to make further decisions. Like what kind of flowers to make.
The other is doing a different type of flower. It’s an origami flower that I just learned how to make. Here are my first attempts in the only colored paper I could find.
The thing with these flowers versus the other bouquet I was making is that I know exactly what they will end up looking like and what I can do with them. I would be flying as blind and I think they would be easier to execute. Here are some examples of final products I like from the Etsy shop Whether Paperworks:
Super cute, right? And I like that you can add in flowers made from book pages or even maps like the following flowers made on Folding Trees.
I really like the idea of including maps because I’m thinking a minor travel theme might get woven into the whole wedding. You know, because travel is essential to our relationship!
But I also like the other flowers I was making before I discovered these flowers. And now I just don’t know what I want to do. One kind of flower with variety in color and paper? Or different kinds of flowers altogether with different colors too? I can’t decide.
I do need to make a decision soon. I have a limited amount of time left in New Zealand and I would like to create the majority of the flowers while I am here and have plenty of free time. Once I get back to the states I will hopefully be working and busy with things so I won’t have time to create lots of flowers. I need to take advantage of this time that I have now which means I need to make a decision!
Any thoughts dear wedding planning friends?
