by Libby MacCarthy

Fresh flowers are a wedding staple, but we definitely don't mind the idea of adding to your lush arrangements with some paper details. For couples looking for something a little different, paper flowers offer a unique way to add personality, playfulness and bright pops of color to your wedding décor. From faux floral vines decorating a ceremony aisle to larger-than-life stems at the reception, there are endless ways to personalize your day with these details.
