The trend of single bloom bouquets for the bride has caught on in the wedding world! Come to think of it, though, can you actually call them ‘bouquets’ then? But terminology aside, this option can make a truly stunning floral statement as you walk down the aisle. But imagine the surprise and delight when your guests look closely, and see that the solo flower is crafted from paper or fabric!
Come and be amazed at the fabulous examples we found. A couple even have tutorials, so you can give it the old DIY try!
Blooms Made of Paper! How Cool!
1 – This whimsical garden wedding featured on 100 Layer Cake received such rave comments on the giant paper flower the bride carried, that it led to a full-blown tutorial on her own blog The House That Lars Built!
2 – You could keep things monochromatic, as in the hint-of-peach delicacy of this image by Emme Wynn Photography (via her blog With Lov3). She credits the oversized paper flower to Sarah Park Events. Lovely!
3 – Rosalind of Grace Designs crafted these lovely muted grey, white, and camel blooms out of crinkly tissue paper. And for stems she used actual gum tree sticks that she sanded down.
4 – For a full petal-by-petal tutorial to craft your own giant paper flower, we have a real bride to thank! Her colorful handmade wedding was featured on Green Wedding Shoes, and sparked a huge interest in how these beauties were made.
5 – A lush single bloom in hot pink is sure to make an impact. This example found via Belle the Magazine with the dense petals of a carnation or dahlia may be a challenge to make, but is definitely striking!
6 – The giant paper flower craze really caught on, so that even the creative team at Ruche assembled an entire backdrop of them for their ‘Enchantment’ lookbook for spring 2012! A full tutorial for these peach charmers is featured on Design Sponge.
