Kraft Paper Wedding Ideas

by Simply Peachy on 10 January 2013

When it comes to affordable wedding decor that can bring out almost any feel, nothing beats good old kraft paper. There’s so much to love about kraft paper – it’s clean and simple, it’s super affordable, it’s a great base for adding any personalised or artistic touches, you can play with almost any colour and it can work with so many different themes! Whether you’re going for a rustic, vintage, modern or woodland look, a little bit of this ordinary piece of paper that we so commonly use for paper bags, can give you that. Here are some ways you can use kraft paper to spruce up your wedding without breaking the bank.

Have you considered printing your wedding invitations or save the dates on kraft paper? It makes for a great base and whether you keep it simple with some beautiful calligraphy or add a bit of colour to give it a delightfully charming punch, it’ll be something your guests will love to receive.

How about kraft wedding escort cards or place cards? They’re clean, they’re simple – and with a few added details like thread, doilies or lace, you can give it that extra bit of pretty. A little bit of texture or detail goes a long way with kraft paper.

You can turn an ordinary wedding favour for your guests into one that’s sweet as sugar or cute as a button. All you need is a few items like kraft paper, twine, and other embellisments like leaves, lace, fabric and voila! No matter what you do, you can be assured your guests will take notice and appreciate you putting that extra handmade effort.

Can’t think of what to do for your table setting at your next dinner party? How about printing your menus on kraft paper or using kraft paper for your place mats? Simple but tres cool. You could even leave out some pens, pencils and crayons and guests can doodle and get creative!
