Why not use all paper flowers? I think it would look fabulous! I think that mixing paper and real flowers may be kind of tricky, but it would probably depend on what kind of flowers you use.

That is such a unique, sleek look.  It will depend on the lighting in the room/tent.  If you’re having a ballroom or tent with uplighting and the house lights are dim by the time dinenr starts, I think mixing the large paper/silk flowers with real flowers will look great, especially if the real flower arrangements are taller and a different height.

I’m not sure if it would work in an outdoor wedding reception where it will still be very light outside when guests sit down for dinner.

I love the look of paper flowers, especially how they are used in this photo.  They can be very classy.

Who sells flowers like these?  Or how do you make them?  They aren’t like the paper flowers Martha Stewart makes.

I’ve been trying to find those same paper flowers for months, but no luck! I was going to have an all paper flower wedding, but I’ve caved in to real flowers for the wedding party. You can see my paper flower projects so far here.

I love your flowers too NiftyBa!  I’m trying to do all crafted flowers too, but I may cave and get a few potted plants… we’ll see 🙂

 And I second the idea of using all real or all paper flowers… I’m not sure how they might look together.  Or at least separate paper and flower arrangements?
