Paper goods can be a unique and vibrant way to add color to your Key West Wedding. Even better, you can customize paper decorations to fit the colors of your weddings perfectly.

Paper lanterns come in a variety of colors – you can even get ones that light up. We have various vendors that we use and can easily get a great bulk discount for your wedding. Here is a breathtaking example of how lanterns can add color to your event space.

This bride and groom even used paper garlands and ribbons to decorate his and her chairs.

You can use a variety of types of paper goods and colors to create a whimsical feel.  Style Me Pretty.

The flowery paper goods shown above are known as pom poms and they can easily be made from tissue paper. Here is a step by step tutorial from the craft queen herself, Martha Stewart.

If you are pressed for time and simply not crafty, you can buy already made tissue paper pom poms from Pom Love on Etsy. One pom will run you around $5. Hey, crafting paper works of art such as these are time consuming…

You can use lanterns indoors or outdoors. They can be arranged horizontally or vertically, in clusters, or individually. Here is a pretty simple arrangement of another type of lanterns. They took an even different approach and didn’t even hang the lanterns. Style Me Pretty
