  • Wedding: October 2011

I am having my wedding in October, but we are using bare saplings that we are cutting down from private property, cementing them into coffee cans and painting them black. We are covering them with white lights, then hanging the lanterns (lit by throwies) from the branches.
Our trees are going to be about 6 ft tall and each tree will have 9 10″ lanterns in it. (3 of each- orange, white, fuschia)
Our venue has a pool in it that will have fountains and lights in it, so we are having a tree at each corner, one on either side of the arbor that we are getting married under and one on either side of the main entrance- for a total of 72 lanterns.
Then, for our aisle decorations, I got 8″ in the fuschia and orange (our chairs are going to be covered in white with orange sashes)  to alternate on the sides of each chair going down the aisle, with pink petals on the outside of the aisle runner.

Lots of work- but it was alot less expensive and we couldn’t hang from the ceiling in the venue because it was too high.
