Hi Meelahj , I’m making my own set of tissue paper pomanders , I’m useing tons of different flowers , many paper ones i’m making but some pre-made silk.

To be honest some of the tissue flowers look more real then high end silk! It is all about the quality of the paper , but the silk flowers are much easier to get the job done as the most time consuming part is making the flowers! Also Mackenzie from Something old , Something new made some of these and they are just darling! Good luck in convincing your aunt! I’m loving mine!

I went to a wedding with tissue paper pomanders hanging from the ceiling in different length strings and I thought it looked great.  And no, it doesn’t look cheap.

Oh I have a great book on making different paper flowers , if you decide to do them I’d be happy to scan and e-mail it to you ^-^. The ones in the photo you showed ate very simple carnations , but the sky’s the limit.

There’s always going to be people who think some of our ideas are cheap or cheesy… for example. I was going for a beachy Savannah, GA feel, with some shabby/hobo chic flair… and I wanted ball jar lanterns for my aisle because I thought they were sooo cute…. my dear Aunt that I go to for advice on everything said they were trashy and weren’t what I would want at my wedding… and I was like ummmmmm excuse me, but I do want them. I made them and even had a cousin help (the night before the wedding because somehow I forgot to finish like half of them???? But I made them and they were used as other decor due to the rain- didn’t get to use them as aisle runners on hooks b/c rain, but you get the point. I still had them!

when it’s put together neatly, i don’t think it looked cheap at all. i’m doing something similar. it will be a hanging pompom a la martha stewart so it will be much bigger and will be hanging on the balcony of our reception site. i think it will help to pop out the colors of the wedding a lot.
