If you are ambitious, you can make paper fabric runners like Etsy seller eclu. I'm not sure how this particular one is held together, but for a runner you could use tissue or parchment paper. Wouldn't it be beautiful? I guarantee it would have your guests talking.
You could get the books from the thrift store and purchase paper flower punches here. Or you can just visit eclu's shop and buy the gorgeous paper peony fabric above. There are also the cutest little bridesmaids clutches in the shop!
Have you been to a wedding with paper flower details?
