    When it comes down to it, there will be people who will love your awesome ideas and people who will dislike them. In the end, it is YOUR wedding and you should do what makes you happy! 🙂

    I htink paper flowers will go great with your theme! Have you been to La Placita Olvera in LA? They sell them there but you can probably DIY for cheaper

    LOVE the Mexican paper flowers! Reminds me of when I was little and we’d go to Laredo and my mom always bought me some.  The fluffier ones are pretty easy to make yourself, I remember making them in elementary school more than once.  The more formed ones, I don’t know, but I live in So. Texas and they are cheap and abundant!  The more formed ones are like what I see made into gorgeous head wreaths at Fiesta time with ribbons down the back.

    I seriously considered paper flowers. I would do paper flowers myself (albeit in a different style, something like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_4OMet90s2xc/SbQ6AiCg8bI/AAAAAAAABRs/edYQs_qN11o/s320/paper+flower+bouquet.JPG ) but I’m too lazy, plus we are marrying in another state and I don’t want to worry about anything getting smushed in transit. 

    I think a mix of both would be nice too but if you only want paper then I see no reason not to go all-paper!  Plus, if you are sentimental, you can save your bouquet much easier than if it were real flowers!
