My idea for the aisle is sheppard’s hook with black candle lanterns and then petals on the sides of the aisle. (it’s at sundown outside, so I figured the candlelight would be pretty, plus our centerpieces are candles and petals) I found the perfect lantern. Absolutely perfect. Then I realized they were 5 inches tall. GAHKJHKGHUGHDGD. (Sorry needed to vent) I’ve looked everywhere for lanterns similar to these:
Nothing to be found, and the one I was “okay” with ended up being $60 a piece. I need eight, and I’m on a budget so tight it squeaks. Spending close to $500 on lanterns isn’t an option.
This was kind of a vent. Things are so expensive now!!! But I also need suggestions for affordable lanterns or alternative aisle decor.
Happy planning, ladies!

Did you look at local rental places? I just did a search online and it looks like you can rent them for significantly below the $60.00 a piece. Might be worth a search in your area.
