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?

Aisle Style

One of the most beautiful ways to use lanterns at weddings is by using them to decorate the ceremony aisle. This is such a simple, yet effective way to add something special to your ceremony room. You can add as many or as little as you want – it’s completely down to your wedding style, and you’ll be able to judge how many your venue needs. I love the idea of placing a lantern on either side of the aisle, at every line of seating. Fill with pillar candles or small tea lights for a warming glow as you say your vows. lanterns at weddings stylemepretty.com - cleanplatepictures.com Image Source - Photographer

Table Centrepieces

You’re completely spoilt for choice when it comes to using lanterns as table centerpieces, the possibilities really are endless! If you’re going down the route of a sparkly or metallic wedding theme, why not use a simple gold or silver lantern with a large candle. Metallic shades are seriously hot for 2016, and they’ll look so chic on your reception tables. For extra impact, surround the lantern with mercury silver or copper candle holders. Add a white few simple flowers for a touch of elegance. lanterns at wedding junebugweddings.com - danstewartphotography.com Image Source - Photographer If you’re planning a gorgeous Summer soiree, consider filling lanterns with beautiful blooms. Match your chosen flowers to your wedding bouquet for a table centerpiece that fits in with your wedding theme. Pink pillow-soft peonies look fab in gold lantern holders. Want something with a rustic feel? Wooden lanterns will look just as good. Geometric style lanterns are extremely popular at the moment, and are fab for an urban wedding. For a finishing look, decorate with a table runner that matches your colour scheme. This will really complete your reception tables and complements the look of the lanterns. lanterns at weddings Ruffled - photo by Pat Furey http://ruffledblog.com/upstate-new-york-wedding-at-bedford-post-inn Image Source - Photographer

Evening Ambience

You could just use lanterns in the evening too – who doesn’t love the glimmering glow of a lantern in the evening? They’ll create a lovely warm atmosphere as your guests dance their way into the night. All you need are a few bridesmaids on-hand to help out with lighting the lanterns and dotting them around your wedding venue. lanterns at weddings ruffledblog.com - awakephotographers.com Image Source - Photographer

Hanging Lanterns at Weddings

One of my favourite ways of using lanterns at weddings is by hanging them from the trees outside your wedding venue – this is particularly perfect if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Adorn the lanterns with beautiful flowers for a gorgeous, natural style. lanterns at weddings moncheribridals.com - ktmerry.com Image Source - Photographer If the majority of your wedding is based inside, you could hang paper lanterns from the ceiling of your wedding venue. Colourful, rainbow-inspired paper lanterns look truly fab and add a pop of colour to even the most modest of venues. Alternatively, keep it classic with simple white lanterns. As you can see, there are so many ways to use lanterns at weddings. They’re a wonderful addition to any wedding and can really help your wedding décor come together. Depending on how you dress your lanterns, they may be the only wedding décor you need for your big day… lanterns at weddings wantthatwedding.co.uk - brianamariephotography.com Image Source - Photographer shop-now  

Silver Lanterns For Weddings

Our silver lanterns can have a number of different uses at weddings. Use the lanterns with a church candle inside to illuminate dark corners at your wedding venue. Perhaps the lanterns could be placed along dark corridors or in a line to make pathways. Lanterns can be used down the aisle, either with a candle inside or a floral decoration. Hang lanterns from shepherds crooks outside at your venue, or place on outdoor tables. Lanterns can also be used as your centrepieces, either with a candle inside and smaller vases of flowers around the base, or with a floral creation within the lantern.
