Picks on Paper - Fabric and Paper Bouquets Wednesday, May 2, 2012 ~ 8:50 a.m.

I have to admit that for a really long time, I was part of the "A wedding just isn't a wedding without real flowers" camp. In my mind, you just can't replace the addition of fresh, fragrant flowers in the bouquets, boutonnieres and strewn about the wedding venue. However, if you don't happen to be all that attached to the idea of fresh florals, then there really are some creative alternatives out there for you. Even me, the huge floral enthusiast, can admit that!

Yes, I love flowers, but we all know that I am also a huge fan of paper! Fun and eclectic paper flowers are a great addition to your wedding day decor, plus, unlike a floral bouquet, paper flowers don't die! You'll be able to keep your bridal bouquet as a keepsake forever, which I love. At the end of the day, I still love flowers, but after blogging about all things wedding-related for nearly a year and a half now, I also have to admit that the intricately designed bouquets made using colorful paper, printed fabrics, vintage brooches and buttons alsp bring something to a wedding that flowers just can't! Each paper and fabric bouquet has its own personality, its own history, and its own story.

I've rounded up a ton of paper and fabric bouquet designs for you today. If you're thinking about making your own, keep an eye out for the "DIY" lessons linked to in the credits. You can also learn how to make the origami paper flowers right here.

Great boards!! I'm the same, I LOVE real flowers, but there are some amazing fabric and paper flower bouquets out there that make me swoon. I'm in both camps I guess!
