This post is for all of the DIY wedding planners out there. If you’re crafty and are looking for inexpensive wedding decoration ideas that you can easily make on your own … look not further! Create paper wedding decorations that will save you a bundle.
I know, I know … at the mention of paper wedding decorations, I wasn’t all that excited either. After doing a little research, however, I am now a believer that paper decorations can be totally cute … totally unique … and completely customized to your wedding! The best part is that all of your decorations can be recycled after the wedding is over! So here are some of my fabulous paper finds …
Wedding Flowers – You can use paper flowers for bouquets, boutonnieres or centerpieces.

Hanging Decorations – From garland to pom-poms, paper decorations are a festive way to decorate your special day!
Paper cranes are known to be symbols of peace, love and luck. Right now, The Wedding Co. is collecting cranes from engaged couples around the world which will be used to build a huge chandelier. Couples write their names, wedding dates and locations on the cranes and send them in. They hope to have 10,000 of these cranes by their 10th anniversary in January 2011 and will donate ¢50 to cancer research for each of the cranes that they receive. Read more about the Crane Chandelier Project at TheWeddingCo.com. Help the cause and send in your own handmade and signed cranes!
Pom-poms and paper lanterns are always a hit!
