Laser Cut Wedding Invitations Are Having a Major Moment
Paper cutting has a long, global history in celebrations of every kind. In Mexico, papel picado (meaning “perforated paper") is an intricate design chiseled into tissue paper that's used to celebrate weddings, quinceañeras and the Day of the Dead. In China, thicker papers are cut with scissors and knives in detailed, symmetrical designs called Jianzhi. Nowadays, we can use laser cutting to create those same complicated designs in stationery, large wedding signs and even in cupcake cups that mimic delicate lace or create a vivid scene. Take a look below for some of our favorite paper cut outs from our real weddings gallery!
