    I think the arch would be the prettiest option, but can’t speak to the structural integrity of it.  Good luck!!

    I love the look of the hanging pole. I have no experience with balloon arches though so I can’t really say which is more practical…

    You should check with your venue because they may not let you attach even detachable hooks to the ceiling.  If you go with the arch, you can screw it to some wood or MDF board to stablize it (and you’d want to cover the feet, of course).

    I say go with what you like ๐Ÿ™‚

    FYI the way they are strung together on the hanging pole is the traditional way to put together the 1000 paper cranes.

    Hi – I used 100 cranes at my wedding a couple of weeks ago and I thought that maybe you would like to see what we did with them. 

    I di heaps of looking around and seeing what others did before I figured out this for myself. See what you think.

    They were hung in strings of four cranes and then attached to ropes which we hung on the beams of the roof. So the cranes hung along the tables  in a kind of curtain.

    I am SO thankful for the site! Just logged in and already have gotten my questions answered for my origami wedding!


    You all are awesome! And the arch would be amazing. I also saw something on another site I’ll have to find a picture and post!

    @Zalea17:  THAT IS FUNNY! I would die. My bridesmaids are all excited about the cranes and are insisting that they should fold some to help. They are planning some folding party/contest. I figured if people I love help and get me to 1000 I can’t complain.


    I have mine stored in tubs. I’m not sure I’ll want to string them up until it’s closer to the wedding and I have more. But then again, I’m not sure how I’ll plan on storing 1000 in plastic tubs :S


    Are you hanging the 1000? Or will you have some in other places? Looking at my venue this weekend I don’t think I’ll need ALL thousand hanging behind us when we marry. May have some near the patio entrance hanging but we’ll see.
