I get married in less than 2 weeks! Jordan and I both decided that we wanted to cut costs wherever possible which turned out to be an amazing opportunity to show off our creativeness. His mom, April, has been a phenomenal help in this respect. She has come up with so many wonderful ideas that are really going to help bring this wedding together.
On my end, I have been riffling through my fair share of bridal magazines and read a great article where the whole wedding was decorated with DIY paper flowers. So i decided to do paper flowers for centerpieces and bouquets also. Our colors are yellow and red ,with all colors in between, which led me to the scrapbooking section to find those colors in bulk. At michael’s, I found this lovely stack of card stock that i have now used for all parts of my wedding paper flowers
The centerpieces have been a bit of a challenge, mostly in the preliminary, not necessarily in the assembly. Myself and other Helpers cut out all the flowers by hand so they would each be unique. We cut small, medium, and large flowers which could then be mixed and matched when attached to the branches with ribbon and buttons. I loved the look I got! The flowers really make the wedding feel so much like home for me and the personal satisfaction of knowing I had a hand in decorations is very rewarding.
