Wilt-free and worry-free! Say hello to the wedding decor trend that's especially perfect for future brides who don't necessarily want to play by the rules—DIY paper flowers. Faux florals may instigate tacky visions of your local craft store that don't exactly scream wedding-worthy, but we're here to make an appealing case for the paper flower route. Exhibit A: there's no watering involved, no fear of knocking over/ruining an arrangement, they're easily customizable, and plenty of paper options look just as pretty as the real deal at a fraction of the cost. Dare we go on?
And, when we refer to DIY paper flowers, we're not talking about cutting cardstock and working the hot glue gun to craft these decorations yourself (what bride has time for that...). We mean pre-made faux florals that you can easily mix and match on your own (hence the DIY component) to arrange into a beautiful bouquet in any vase of your choice. So, if you're still not sold on paper decor, or need some visual inspo to fuel your planning, we rounded up 13 DIY paper flower ideas, running the gamut from paper bridal bouquets to table centerpieces to paper flower hair accessories. Even if you weren't considering going all paper flower everything for your ceremony or reception, these picks may just persuade you otherwise.
