Paper wedding – not just an anniversary anymore

Paper generally doesn’t featured heavily in wedding celebrations. Paper napkins, table clothes and even invitations are usually a big no-no in the wedding world. It just doesn’t scream class and quality – you might as well eat off paper plates. In fact, the only time paper should really feature is as the name of your first anniversary.

However, since the Chanel 2011 all white spring show, things have changed and paper has increasingly become a big part of weddings. And we just love it here at The Wedding Portugal.

Karl Lagerfeld decorated that whole show with white paper flowers that looked simply stunning and since then we’ve noticed a big increase in this versatile material. You still won’t find any table clothes or napkins, but as part of the venue décor it makes perfect sense.

Paper flowers are less expensive than the real deal but still look stunning. And because they’re paper, they won’t wilt or dry out in the heat. Hang them from ceilings, cover the walls, dress the tables – there is no end of ways to use this flexible and colourful material to dress a venue.

Here in Portugal, paper is one of the country’s biggest exports, which means top quality paper is affordable and in great supply. There’s even a whole town, called Tomar, that decorates itself in paper flowers every four years, so we know a thing or two about it.
