Flowers

Till recently I had my wedding flowers all figured out. We planned to order flowers, probably from Potomac Floral, and arrange them ourselves in the glass jars our family has been collecting for us. Seasonal flowers, fall colors, unstructured, natural, simple, fun - this was supposed to be a done deal!

Wedding Flower Inspiration
{Inspiration from all over! I didn't manage to keep track of where these came from, except that pics 6, 7 and 9 are from Snippet and Ink. If I owe you credit, please contact me and I'll make it right! And note to self: document.}

But today I came across Elisebeth's paper flowers on via Once Wed. And oh my. Simple, elegant, woodsy, and natural. How's a girl to make up her mind?

I still really like our original flower plans, but there are some benefits to the paper alternative. They'd save us some money, and we could have them done and arranged well in advance of our wedding weekend. Decisions decisions . . .

Ooh thanks for posting my project! Seriously, they are the easiest things to make.

Can you reuse them? If so, I vote paper. I LOVE live flowers, but it's really such a waste when they wilt and die...

So glad you like them. Love Elisebeth's version - they're super cute in yellow. My wedding flowers were yellow too :)

Hey Jenny! Yep, that's another benefit. Either you can reuse them, or compost the branches and recycle the paper. There's even 100% recycled construction paper!

You can always do a mixture of both, real in some areas, faux in others, or a true mixture in the same container.
