A few months ago we shared our paper dress wedding decorations and it became an instant hit. They can be used for so many wedding projects! Turn them into a garland for bridal shower decor, use them as an adorable and unique wedding cake topper or even incorporate them into your will you be my bridesmaid cards. Now we are following up our mini paper dresses with these matching mini tuxedo wedding decorations.
Just like the mini dresses, these mini tuxedos are made out of cardstock. While we wanted to find cute and pastel patterns of cardstock for the dresses, we went with a neutral color scheme for our mini tuxedo wedding decorations. If you are using a cutting machine, download the SVG version of the template. Use the PDF version if you are cutting by hand. To make cutting by hand a bit easier, I would recommend printing the PDF template directly onto the cardstock that you will be using. That way you can cut along the lines rather than trace the pieces of the template onto the cardstock. Once you have your pieces cut out, you can follow the step-by-step photo tutorial to assemble the mini tuxedo wedding decorations. Choose between a tie or a bow tie for your tuxes based on your preference!
We used a hot glue gun to attach all of our little tuxedo pieces together. When you have your mini tuxes ready, you can use them to accompany your mini paper dresses in decorating your DIY wedding. I love the idea of stringing the dresses and tuxedos together into a garland to adorn your wedding chairs or bridal party table at your reception. You could also easily pair a tux with a paper dress as your cake toppers. To do this, glue toothpicks into the pant legs and it is as simple as that! Feel free to get creative with your mini tuxedo wedding decorations.
