We love lanterns, candles, lights…all of it!!! Lanterns are the perfect way to create a romantic and dreamy ambience at your wedding events. Here are a few ideas on various styles of lanterns and how you can incorporate them in your décor.
Metal lanterns look elegant and chic and are a perfect way to add natural lighting to your function. We love the ones in the picture above with the candles. They can be hung or just placed around the venue.
Paper lanterns are also pretty and add a soft touch to your wedding décor. They work well preferably for an outdoor set up. They look stunning when lots of them are hung at different heights. There are various ways to string them; you could hang them individually at varying heights or string them in a mesh or simply in a row….they will look stunning in almost any way! Another great idea, is to dress up the usually basic paper lantern. Work on the color based on your theme, dress up them with flowers, origami… get creative!
Oil lanterns are old school, but a great option in case you are on a budget as these are not so expensive. Also they can add a vintage touch to your décor and the lighting is good enough. We like the way they have been used in the picture above.
Floor lanterns are a great way to mark the walkway for sundown outdoor functions. They look elegant and this is a great idea to spice up your walkway. It is a practical idea which can double up as a décor prop.
Lastly, this is something we just can’t have enough of….sky lanterns! They are beyond gorgeous and a perfect way to end your outdoor function. Hand them out to your guests, make a wish and release!
