Lovely Lanterns

I thought that I outgrew paper lanterns, and that they would serve no purpose post college dorm decoration.   However, when I went to visit my reception site, I paged through some picture books they had and saw a photo of lanterns that inspired me…

Then I started searching the internet and came across several other lantern pictures that solidified my decision to include lanterns as a decorative element.  Now I need to find at least 10-15 cream lanterns to use for my wedding.  Can you be a power buyer on ebay because I’m starting to think a lot of my purchases will be from there.

So as I search through ebay I came across the craziest thing I have ever seen– hot air balloon lanterns.  Excuse me?  Yeah, it is some super invention in China.  These lanterns have a little rocket fuel to propel them into the air where they float for about 10 minutes and then fall.  I’m not sure America is ready for that.

And then I came across these glass lanterns from for $3.50 each from CB2.  So gorgeous!!

But I also love these as an idea to put next to the rows of chairs.

Are you incorporating lanterns into your wedding at all?

I’m only coming to your wedding if you have the hot air balloon lanterns. Anything less would be sub-par.
