    I think they’re wonderful! Seriously, how clever is that? If this is what you want, then rock it and don’t look back.

    I think it looks really neat – if I was a guest at your wedding, I would want to take one of those paper flowers home!

    I think it looks cool but I think your guests might not see the art in it.  Maybe not for wedding centerpieces. You might be able use them for your rehearsal dinner, though, since they’re less formal.

    I think they’re awesome. I really wanted paper flowers at our reception as decorations but FH vetoed it.

    Also, tacky is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone does something that others think is tacky, who cares? If you like it then go for it.

    I hate the word tacky! I’ve NEVER seen something at a weddnig that is tacky- sure there were things that were ugly, or cheap, or out of place, but tacky is SO subjective that I try to never use it. As for your ideas, I think they are terribly creative and different… I would love them!

    I love it, but my thought is it will depend on your audience. The “Wedding Blog” set (i.e., us brides and our peers who devour charming, unique, modern details on all the wedding blogs,) will likely love it. Your Great Aunt Thelma might be perplexed. I think you have to think about who your audience is and how much you care if they don’t get it!

    One way to dress it up just a little bit might be to use colorful paper vs. the newsprint. Or, have a few newspaper flowers mixed in with a few monochromatic paper flowers.

    I’m with Circus Peanuts – it depends greatly on the audience. When I told my mom I would probably wear colored shoes she was like “what? Aren’t you supposed to wear white shoes with the white dress?” – sigh…

    Yes, that does change things. If the event is not so formal then I think you can do them.  Guests won’t be expect formal.  Plus I think they’re nice.
