Fun New Flower Trend: Paper Flowers

The “destination” in destination weddings can sometimes dictate your floral choices. While some brides have their heart set on a specific flower no matter what, if you’re not blessed with an unlimited budget, certain blooms might not be easily obtainable in a specific locale. And certain flowers have a tough time withstanding extreme heat, so it might be wise to seek out viable options suited to your destination.

Also, if you have a specific colour scheme that isn’t friendly to nice flowers (like certain shades of  blue – if hydrangeas aren’t your thing, then what are you thinking?), paper flowers are a good way to bring in hints of colour.

That being said… we’ve discovered a new business created by a stay-at-home mom that might just be a great alternative to enhance your decor for your destination wedding. Introducing Handmade Paper flowers from McFunk90. SAY WHAT? Handmade paper flowers? For a wedding?

These crafty darlings can be modeled after your favourite blooms and add a very artsy look to your overall decor scheme. I particularly like the green flowers pictured below as they remind me of a succculents collection (which I’m still loving these days). What do you think?
