DIY touches can elevate your wedding without adding a lot of fat to your wedding budget.
One of my favorite ways to add color, flair, and personality to your wedding is by using paper wedding flowers. They showcase your creativity and are an easy DIY project you can complete with friends, family, or the wedding party.
It’s not a traditional way to decorate your wedding but it’s definitely a fun and unique touch!
