With a little paper-folding know-how and some wedding craft paper you can create everything from beautiful invitations, thank you cards to stunning flower bouquets and table decorations. We have come up with some fantastic ideas that will add a personal touch to your big day.
1. Wedding invites
Creating your own invites using origami can create stunning results. The options are endless when it comes to the kind of invitations you can make, just see the image above to view the possibilities available and what even the relative origami novice should be able to master.
2. 3D Origami table centrepieces
Incorporating the eternal symbol of love can be used as an adorable table centrepiece and decoration – place them across each table to spread the love. They’re so versatile you could use ribbon to string them up and create bunting.
3. Bride & bridesmaids bouquets
Origami bouquets can look as stunning as the real thing – if not more so – and, unlike with fresh flowers, you will be able to treasure them for years to come. One of the most popular origami flowers for weddings is the lily, which is relatively easy to fold and looks beautiful. Once you have mastered the folding process, one lily should only take about 10 minutes to create.
4. Wedding favours
Present your wedding favours in a carefully folded surprise. They don’t have to be hidden in a box; they can be anything you desire. This is an excellent way to convey your wedding theme and personality.
5. Cake adornments
Instead of using icing to create a stunning wedding cake, add those all-important finishing touches with some origami creations. You could opt for a trail of colourful cranes for a supremely modern effect or go for a more traditional look using craft paper hearts and flowers. Some couples even opt for origami models of the bride and groom – all possible with the right folding techniques.
