Wedding season has traditionally always been during the summer, but one of the biggest wedding trends over the past few years has been fall weddings. There are lots of benefits to having an “off-season” wedding. Venues are usually more available and less expensive, guests will not be away on their summer vacations and you can embrace the unique offerings of each season. No matter what date your wedding falls on, you can tailor your wedding bouquet to capture the essence of the season. We used our Four Seasons Home Decor Cricut cartridge to create four paper wedding bouquets perfect for spring, summer, fall and winter weddings.
For each of the paper wedding bouquets we began with a 5 inch foam ball. Cut off one end of the foam ball so that it has a flat back. Fold 5-6 pieces of 18 gauge floral wire in half and glue the ends into the flat side of the foam ball. Wrap floral tape around the bunch of wires to create a handle for the bouquet. From here, you can begin crafting each bouquet. The trick for filling out the paper wedding bouquets is to start by gluing on an abundance of leaves and then building out the arrangement from there. Glue the leaves onto short pieces of floral wire that you can stick into the foam, and use a variety of greens to create depth in the bouquet. We found all of our gorgeous metallic papers on Paper-Papers. Feel free to browse their site to pick out your favorite colors!
We went for a lush, blooming look for our spring bouquet with royal purple orchids and vibrant green leaves. The summer bouquet features happy white daisies with pops of cornflower blue flowers and yellow freesia. Moving into the autumn bouquet, we of course wanted to feature fall leaves in rich plums with gold acorns and large cosmos. Our winter bouquet may be my favorite. It is elegant and crisp and just looking at it makes me think of smelling an irresistible pine scent. This bouquet blends beautiful white gardenias with pine leaves, holly berries and pinecones. A true stunner for any winter wedding!
