Have you ever heard of PAPEL PICADO ? It is inlaid and decorated paper that has Mexican roots and can be a beautiful way to decorate with originality your wedding.
The technique of hand cut paper is traced to the 18th century. The paper imported from China to Mexico became beautiful banners thanks to the artisans commissioned by the Church to decorate streets during the religious festivals.
So far in Italy we only have seen inlaid laser cut invitation but the Papel Picado can be the wedding theme itself, it is versatile and customizable, from the invitation to the wedding cake. Can decorate wedding favors, the jars of flowers centerpieces, the reception room with beautiful garlands or the table itself as a placemat or runner. Definitely original and romantic! And if you have one or more favorite colors of course can be articulated in the shade of your choice!
If you have manual skills you can decorate your wedding with papel picado in an original and cheap way, otherwise you can find the products on internet, especially on Etsy. Or asking a good wedding planner, who decline the theme in every detail!
Talk to you soon,
