Unless you're planning an uber-modern all-white wedding, you'll be looking for creative ways to integrate color into your wedding decor. I suggest trying to incorporate some tissue poms, or happiness on a string, as I like to call them! :) Tissue Poms have the unique ability to instantly brighten up any room or event - so colorful, light and airy. They're one of my favorite decorative elements, and I almost wish that I was getting married indoors so I could use them in my own wedding decor!
There are several DIY guides out there to help you make your own poms, courtesy of Martha Stewart and Wedding Paper Divas, but honestly, I wouldn't recommend it unless you happen to be crafty. If you handle that tissue paper just a little too much, the poms will just end up looking heavy and wrinkled, rather than light and effortless.
If you're anything like me, and would rather spend the money to purchase something you love rather than risk messing it up, here are some online vendors to check out.
~ Good Things Wedding Favors offers pom-pom decoration kits.
~ Two Peas in a Bucket has tissue pom kits by Martha Stewart in a variety of colors including blue, pink, white and purple, in small and medium sizes.
~ Pros to the Host on Etsy has a million and one poms for you to choose from, in a variety of color and size combinations, including the "Age of Innocence" package, which includes three poms in white, light pink and grey, for $13, and the "Preppy reMIX," which features 5 poms (2 large and 3 medium) in a "hot dots" pattern, hot pink, lime, white and "goldenrod."
~ Pros to the Host also has these amazing napkin poms, if you're venue doesn't allow you to hang your pom-poms. Or, you can top your wedding cupcakes with a baby pom by My Silly Bear, or a pom garland cake topper by Potter and Butler.
~ Pomtree has a kit for the smaller pom-poms to tie as a ribbon around your favor boxes and gifts.
