Wedding Inspiration: Origami Paper Cranes
Brides all over are using origami paper cranes as decoration for their wedding! Why origami cranes? In the Asian culture cranes are a symbol of happiness, longevity and peace. It is said that 1000 paper cranes will give you a thousand years of happiness and prosperity together!! How cool is that?
Origami cranes not only have an awesome meaning but they are also beautiful decoration. Hanging strings of origami cranes make a stunning backdrop for any ceremony.
How beautiful are these cranes hanging from this 100 year old tree?
They also serve as a great backdrop for photographs!
I love the idea of using an origami crane as the escort cards!
Or they can double as a favor for the guests to take home with them!
If you are crafty gal these origami cranes are a great DIY project. If you aren’t so crafty, like me, websites such as Esty are my saving grace and will have a great variety of papers and colors to choose from!
