Floral arrangements are of course the most normal choice to decorate a wedding. In each shape or shade, they can fascinate everyone with their simple, undeniable beauty. Unfortunately, they’re not always also the most economic option. Flowers are in fact needed for ceremony and reception’s location, bridal’s bouquet, boutonnières and centrepieces, so that is necessary to spend a considerable amount of money. Luckily exists a more economical solution, able to substitute or enrich floral arrangements without sacrificing their scenic effect: paper decorations!
Homemade lovers already know it, with paper and imagination is possible to realize each kind of decoration. Festoons are the most simple and immediate and they can be hung to the walls or used for hanging ceiling arrangements.
In addiction, or in alternative, to the festoons, lanterns or paper honeycomb balls can be utilized. They can be realized in many dimensions, and are wonderful both for interiors and exteriors.
For the people who prefer to adorn lateral areas, paper garlands are ideals: they in fact assume, in addition to a decorative role in the location, a perfect background for photo shoot and photo booth, creating unique memories with friends and relatives. They’re created in many models, origami’s, boats’, ice creams cones’, and the ones who consider flowers fundamental can opt for the gorgeous paper flowers!
They’re already a trend overseas, and appeared for the first time in 2009 during the Chanel’s runway show. Paper flowers are ideal in many events, and adapt perfectly to each theme or palette: from pastel nuances to bright colours, two-coloured or monotone, created in different dimensions depending on their use. Small or medium sized paper flowers are used for festoons or garlands, large sized ones for hanging decorations or lateral walls, and in the end giant paper flowers, perfect for photo shoot or to embellish ceremony’s naves or arches.
For a more realistic effect, it’s possible to add also the steams, in order to obtain “flowers” ideal for centrepieces, fable scenography and, why not, for the bridal’s bouquet too!
Unlimited possibilities for unlimited styles, from the romantic to the funny one, the vintage or the modern one, paper decorations arrangement can lend that original and refined signature, which will make unique your wedding!
