White Lanterns For Weddings Can Be Used as Centrepieces

Have you thought about using lanterns as an alternative to a vase for your wedding centrepieces? Our white lanterns are popular as lanterns at weddings, I think couples like the white colour to tie in with their neutral wedding colour palettes. But more and more of our customers are telling us they are using their lanterns not just for candles for filled with flowers for their wedding table decorations.

These white lanterns work perfectly as vases as they have a small glass container within them which can be filled with water. The lanterns are not enclosed like so many other lanterns, so the flowers can breathe. Perfect for a summer or winter wedding don’t you think?

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love all those little extra touches. Our wooden Mr and Mrs wedding chair signs can look stunning hanging from the backs of your wedding ceremony chairs and then move them through to your reception for your chairs for the wedding breakfast.

Our wooden Mr and Mrs signs are in a calligraphy style font, they are plain light wood in colour but you may choose to paint them. We have known couples to use spray paint and paint them in gold and silver which both look fab but also love them in the natural wood as well. They could be painted any colour.
