Paper folding for my decoration

So I have been looking at my wedding planning, and since my budget is what I can find in my bank account between now and the wedding I have had to be creative with my funds.
I decided to make my decorations out of origami
but then I saw how pretty Bouquets look out of origami and decided to also make them.

here is some of the images that inspired me.





so I started by cutting old magazines into squares and testing different shapes and flowers.
this is a little container
 

A lily
 

a bunch of them
 

some more flowers
 

and then I started of the bridesmaids bouquets, they will be tones of blue
 


It means I have to make sure I fold some every night, but some lovely friends have decided to come and help. I am holding some origami folding evenings soon and hopefully there will be enough fun had to make them want to come back and make more.

I will put the bouquets up once they are done, I can't wait to see them finished :)

These are lovely! The blue tones are beautiful! I am planning wedding makes at the moment too and I think your origami is a brilliant idea!

I don't suppose you know where you got the second and third pictures of inspiration do you? I would love to know how to make those flowers! I love origami flowers!

I got most of them off either pinterest or google image search. In the third one there is lilies and roses the second one I am not too sure about. I hope that helps :)
