Following as well. I have 40 white ones I just got from amazon and I’ll be painting some silver and pink and hanging them from the cieling. Our wedding is 9.26 so I’ll keep you guys posted!

thinking of doing this for a backyard wedding. I’m just nor sure what the pole set up will be. Pinterest has a bunch of pictures, but they are all very staged.

Commenting to follow! I kind of wanted an Up sort of theme, but didn’t really want balloons, so I think I’m going with paper lanterns. But I want to see it done in real life.

I did, but dont have my pictures back yet. I had a nautical themed wedding and had 45 pink and white paper lanterns hung from the ceiling of the tent. Mine were not lit, though, so they were for purely decorative purposes. My only complaint is that the venue strung them a bit low and people were hitting them while dancing. It turned out okay though, one got ripped down and people were bouncing it around like a beach ball on the dance floor! I got mine from paper lantern store. Mine were spread out more than the above picture. I’d be careful of size, it’s hard to judge how large they should be. I bought 12″ and 16″ and I wish I had just done 16″. That being said, i saw the tent done up for the wedding the night before mine and they had huge lanterns, maybe 18-20″ and I did not care for that either. I’ll try to find a guest pic that shows them.
