I would love to have pomanders line up the aisle but 1. real flower pomanders are very expensive 2. tissue paper pomanders take way too much skills and time to make (for me at least).
This is what I have come up with. Do you think they will work as alternative to pomanders? I would probably get nice floral-pattern paper for the real ones. The salmon color one is my first attempt so it’s more wrinkly. The yellow one is attempt #2.
I stole the other picture from the internet, but my idea is to hang these on the chairs.

Those are beautiful!
I ordered these : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27980688
and LOVE them! I’m going to hang them on all the end of aisle chairs on for the ceremony, and bring them somehow into the reception after.

those are lovely! They seem more daunting to make than tissue paper pomanders, but kudos to you!

for some reason I couldn’t load the pic of the ones I attempted. Here it is again. Not nearly as pretty as the ones from the internet, but I didn’t use any fancy paper either. Hopefully my first DIY project will be a success. I am just worried that these will look cheap in real life.

Hmm, they’re fun looking! Are you deadset on doing solid colors? Part of what I love about the internet photo you submitted was the variations within each ball – a little thing that makes a big difference.

@daydreamwanderer – no, I am not planning to use solid colors. These are just my trial runs to make sure I can actually make these things.

If you’re going to like mix up the patterns, I’d go ahead and do a third with the different patterns that you’ll use to see how they turn out! Post it so we can see 🙂
I think they’re totally cute though!
