I'm Calling It: Papel Picado

Today is the first installment of The Wedding Loft of CT's series: "I'm Calling It". Throughout the year, we'll share some ideas and trends we think will be super hot for seasons to come.

Today's topic? Papel Picado!

I have a confession that is doubly embarrassing as a paper designer and former resident of Mexico my junior year abroad. I didn't know the name for this seriously fab craft until I had to incorporate it into a recent invitation design. But now I am a full-blown fan + advocate!

As I was researching for my design, I came across some amazing examples and can't help but feel it's on the verge of becoming a seriously cool wedding trend. It may seem at first that it's only appropriate for a certain type of soiree, but I think in the coming seasons it'll show up in different ways for various types of weddings. Paper cut and laser cut designs are seriously hot trends down the aisle and down the runway.

Check out some visual goodness below as my evidence....and enjoy!
