Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

3 Paper Gem Accessories

Was anyone else enchanted by the jewels Meghan Markle wore on her wedding day? The tiara was impressive, yes, but it was the aquamarine stunner she wore to the reception that really stole the show in my opinion! Originally belonging to Princess Diana, the aquamarine ring was a special gift to Meghan from Harry’s mother’s collection. Unfortunately, I don’t see myself acquiring any large or precious gemstones in my near future, so I had to improvise. We made 3 Paper Gem Accessories to for you to wear to on special occasions, the workplace, or if you’re feeling extra, the grocery store! The necklace and earrings are great for everyday accessorizing, and the tiara is fun for birthday or bachelorette parties. Just follow some simple origami steps to make these beauties and a bit of glue and string turms them into something special!
