- Wedding: July 2012
Here’s the thing. Flowers are in my mind, no doubt, beautiful. As far as the price goes, from a florist, I am not so fond of this aspect.
So, naturally. I turned to fake flowers. I don’t want them to look cheap. So I went for the most realistic looking stems I found at hobby lobby. Honestly, They are pretty legit. The thing is…for ONE stem, it’s generally 5-7 dollars. True, I can score big time when they put they’re stems on 50% off. Though that can be a good deal…I want flowers for bouquet’s, the ceremoney & the reception. That add’s up quick.
So, I started looking for alternatives.I saw this, and fell in love.
This bouquet is an assortment of paper flowers.
Here’s what I think: Would it be too much of a daunting task to make all of the bouquet’s out paper? No. Would it be too overwhelming to make all of the bouquet’s, all of the ceremony flowers, and all of reception flowers out of paper? That’s the side I’m leaning towards. So, here’s my question.
Should I just add paper flowers for each aspect to my list of DIY’s?
Should I just do paper flowers for the boquet & either buy silk, or real flowers for the rest of the wedding?
I’d really like some feedback. Possibly, some brides who are, or have incorporated paper flowers entirely, or somewhere in their wedding!
