It took me a few months, but I finally finished all of my origami flowers. They were a lot of work, but I think they turned out great. I’ll be using these for my reception centerpieces. I wanted something cheaper than real flowers and something unique. Here are the links to the tutorials I used if you’re interested in making them.
Here are pictures of my flowers! I still have to add stems, but I’m proud of how they look so far.

They look lovely! I really like the patterned papers – so fun!
I’m making some kusudamas too, mostly for table decorations and each one takes me such a long time. I can’t imagine how much time is represented by that box of flowers!

@Hydra: They were very time consuming for sure, but I like the idea of being able to tell people that I made each one by hand. It adds a personal touch to the wedding.

I am making my flowers too! And will have 1000 paper cranes.
One question! What kind of paper are you using? I’ve been using traditional one sided origami paper…but the kusudama flowers with one sided paper show the white half in the center. Not sure if I want that type of look.
PLEASE let me know! They are gorgeous. I can’t wait to have all of mine done!

@linds12: Sorry this reply is so late! I used craft paper that I bought at Michael’s. There is no white showing, because I got paper that was colored on both sides.
