    I like the last one and the first one but not with the red square there.  Honestly the red square on the table throws if off because it doesn’t match the flowers red so its lots of red.

    The vintage lantern is pretty, but it doesn’t doesn’t quite fit with the flowers.  I guess if they are on seperate tables it would be ok.

    I agree with pp, not a huge fan of the red square.  The color reads a little too orange/bright.

    I would choose the Victorian vintage lantern just because I like it better.

    If you are thinking of selling the lanterns after your wedding, I would choose the Cathedral style. I think they would be more universally appealing.

    I also would not use a red tablesquare with red flowers. You want your flowers to be the center of attention- not compete with the fabric.

    I like both lanterns.  What types of flowers were you planning on?  We’re you using real or silk flowers (I ask because I love the look of the submerged flowers and am just starting to think about centerpieces)?  If the overall feel of your wedding is vintage go with that one, but honestly I like them both.

    I know it has been a while since your wedding but hoping you might be able to tell me where you found the vintage victorian lantern.  

    Thanks in advance!

    michellefromhouston:  The OP is not likely to see your question. You did not tag her (click on reply in her post so your question is directed to her and she gets an email to bring it to her attention). She has also not been active on the Bee for a couple of years.

    I am sure you will find something you like. There are hundreds of black metal lanterns.
