DIY paper decorations to declare your wedding style

Why spend thousands on your wedding decor when you can do it yourself? Letting your imagination wonder can convert itself into a complete challenge; however, if you choose the perfect materials, the results can be amazing. Paper, that wonderful resource that surrounds you and that you can get from anywhere, will be your perfect ally to give structure to the decorations that will declare the style of your wedding. By means of neutral or dramatic colors, this approach will convert your wedding into a real feast for the senses.

The DIY touch has become a real trend to add color and style to your wedding. The best thing is that the options are infinite, so you can choose the level of complexity based on your creative skills. If it’s about giving a good impression, then a great idea is to capture looks with recycled paper, which you can garnish with images or elements that accompany your chosen theme. Don’t forget to complement these details with matching centerpieces or flowers for instant color harmony.

If you want to choose a simple yet attractive option, we recommend you design a backdrop with paper decorations. This ornament will be a complete success for your ceremony, especially if you manage to integrate the exact quantity of colors and tones that say the most about you. The DIY touch can be complemented with paper flowers, which should be full of vibrant tones and energy. Take into account that this look will be much more effective if your ceremony is outdoors.

Another way of creating DIY paper decorations is with origami. This alternative is ideal as it allows you to combine colors and all types of prints. Likewise you could indulge your guests with some colorful paper hand fans, which can be designed with an impressive variety of tones and sizes. Paper decorations can be added to all stages of your wedding, so don’t forget to get everyone talking with the wonderful escort cards that you have designed yourself!
