We love lanterns, they’re great ways to light up the path and when you’re taking a photograph they add great ambiance give a nice touch to the picture. The Wedding Wire agrees with us and wrote a little post about it.
Here’s what they had to say:
“Lanterns can add a lot to your decor and wedding style. They can be incorporated into any theme, and at any time of year. As Summer leaves us and we begin to think about Fall and Winter, lanterns are great for the shorter days as they can provide romantic lighting to all different parts of your wedding day. Below are five ideas, but truly the possibilities are endless!”
Below are 5 different ways that Wedding Wire gave recommendations for the use of lanterns. Here’s our take on those 5:
Lanterns as a whole give a very rustic feel and when lined up like this in a photograph it gives a great depth of field. Also, at night when they’re actually being used there is this great sense of romanticism that comes with lanterns.
2) Aisle Markers
Aisle markers aren’t always needed but when they’re added they put a really nice look to the aisles. These ones have flowers and small plants inside of them but you can put anything from candles to small tree branches in them and they would light up the aisle in more ways than one.
3) Welcome Table Decor
For a fall wedding this would be a great look and photograph beautifuly when matched with neutral colors and candle light.
4) Location Decor
Locations decor with lanterns makes the spot pop would make a great backdrop for guests to take pictures. With varying sizes of lanterns and candles, these would make a perfect bright spot for the happy nuptials.
5) Reception Decor
Lanterns hanging from the ceiling if done properly will look very nice. It would light the reception area very well give off a very nice aura.
