Wedding: Paper Flowers

“The desire to create is one of the
deepest yearnings of the human soul.”
– ELDER UCHTDORF


Welcome to day two of my first anniversary countdown! Today, I will be showing you the project I spend the most time on, but I think it was well worth it. Before I even started planning for the wedding, I knew I would have to come up with an economic way to do the flowers. The idea of putting together my own arrangements gave my anxiety because it would be so close to the actual day. Paper flowers were perfect! I could have them done months in advance, and they still looked beautiful. I loved that they looked like flowers but maintained individuality with patterns and colors not seen in nature.

This is what my office looked like for months.

It could have been a paper flower factory. In the end, I made over two hundred flowers!

My bouquet was wrapped with my mother’s, grandmothers’ and great grandmother’s pearls.

Corbin’s boutonniere was a gold flower that I wrote my vows on in white. I had a gold flower in my bouquet with his vows written on it too.
