Hello! I really want to put paper lanterns in our reception tent for the wedding… but feel bad spending a bunhc of money on things that I honestly own’t have much use for afterwards.. I mean sure I can use some of them to decorate my living room with, but 20 of them? that’s too much.
Does anyone know of any places you can rent stuff like this? I’ve had no luck…

Have you thought about just buying them from a local bride and selling them on here or on craigslist. I looked at renting them, but it seemed to cost just about as much as buying the lanterns.

I live in Seattle and have 40 white paper lanterns (brand new) that I bought from a bride on weddingbee that I will sell to you for $75. They are from http://www.lunabazaar.com/white-10-inch-round-premium-rice-paper-lantern.aspx, and value around $125. I think the sizes are 12”, 14”, 16”, and 18”.
Send me a personal message if you are interested!

Don’t know if you figured this out yet, but I was online shopping for them last night and asianimportstore.com had the best deals!! $1 for 8″ and $1.23 for 12″ and they come in many different colors! I’m getting lime and navy to match my wedding. I know you prob won’t use them, but for a dollar who cares! You could use them for parties or bbq or just give them away. A great deal I think!

I recommend buying them. I bought 24 huge lanterns on ebay from a seller named “craftsnfavors”. I think they cost me about $60 in the end. The lanterns rip easily so I asked the seller if they’d throw an extra one in just in case (because I needed exactly 24) and they did!
I recommend just buying them. Then you can donate them or sell them afterward.
Here are the ones I bought. I think they were 24” (red) and 16” (orange).
