it's all in the details: paper flowers

paper flowers!!?? i bet you didn't see that one coming from a florist. but for real, faux flowers can really add a lot to your wedding (and they can be inexpensive!). now i'm not suggesting that you use JUST faux flowers, we all know that there is nothing better then the real deal, but used in combination the two can make for a real statement wedding! You can put them on your cake... 
instructions on how to make crepe paper flowers hereyou can use them for your ceremony backdrop, my ultimate fav being from this wedding below...
you can make GIANT flowers and use them on your tables or to carry like this bride did, instructions here.
not interested in making your own? well bhldn sells some hand-made bouquets and garlands...but be ready to pay an arm and a leg, or go here for some single blooms.
i am also a fan of these feather flowers made by rebecca thuss, which can be used as boutonnieres, in the hair or in your bouquet.
the possibilities are truly endless and these flowers are easy to use, seeing as they don't need to be watered and kept out of the heat.
