Paper Flowers? Why Not?
We’ve been seeing seeing more paper flowers being used for weddings and special events for both environmental and budgetary reasons. We’ve also noticed that they’re far from tacky—in some cases it’s difficult to tell them from the real thing.
“I just did an entire wedding with paper flowers,” says Maya Kalman of Swank Productions in New York City. “We used them for the bouquet, the cake, corsages and table centerpieces…even the boutennieres. I like to try new things, and the bride was so excited about the idea that she ended up making a bunch of the flowers herself.”
If you don’t have the inclination to make the flowers yourself, you’ll find a variety of creative made-to-order solutions on the Internet. You can specify colors, textures and sizes, just as you do at a live floral shop. And you won’t have to worry about wilting or watering before or during the big event.
