Decor Ideas: Japanese Lanterns

Adding a personal touch to your wedding doesn't have to cost a fortune. Japanese lanterns are an inexpensive way to make a big impact. One advantage of them is they can be decorated to complement your wedding colors and theme. Wedding lanterns can be stationary or can float to the sky to create a beautiful send off for a wedding couple.

Paper lanterns made of wire and rice paper can add elegance and flair to almost any festive occasion. Because they come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes--and they are relatively inexpensive--many couples opt to use paper lanterns to decorate their wedding venues. It takes a little time and effort, but it is relatively easy to decorate with these beautiful and delicate light shades.

Some wedding venues may not allow wedding lanterns and there also may be city or state regulations about releasing lanterns into the air. The setup of your venue may also not be right for hundreds of wedding lanterns. Always inquire first about what is allowed, and examine your venue space to get an idea of how lanterns can be utilized. With a little planning, your wedding lanterns can create a look that is stunning and memorable.
