So our reception hall is a little bland and we want to hang something lighted on the ceiling.. like lanterns or balloons or even strings of lights. But if we decorate the day before and they are battery operated.. someone will have to get up on a ladder and turn them all on before it starts. There’s gotta be a better way! Any suggestions?

Speak to your venue, perhaps they would be able to turn them on prior the reception? Or they may have other suggestions based on what has been done before. I had similar issues trying to think of how to decorate our venue and found that talking to them was very helpful. They were able to tell me what worked well in the past and what didnt go so well. What about doing a swag on the ceiling? Tulle with lights? Thats what we decided on and to have it done and installed for us will be about $300.00

What’s the life span of the batteries, can you leave them on?
Or can you do all of the other decorations aside from the lanterns the day before and do the lanterns the same day?
Maybe there’s a way of expediting the process such as hanging the string? ribbon? for the lanterns to hang from up and then putting the lanterns with the lights up the next day?

You can also get Remote controlled battery operated string lights.
This is just one example:
