How about some strong magnets to hold the lantern string against the metal ?

I was under the impression that the best way to hang lanterns in any situation is to use fishing line (the stronger the better). Because the fishing line is transparent, it appears that the lanterns are floating in air! in your situation this may also work well, because all you need is something to tie the line to – it looks like in the photos there are beams and other things that stick out that may do the trick. You can also avoid all the lanerns being on one line by making a grid of fishing line and hanging them at random points…

And you can hang the fishing line from the beams by using some of those 3M hook things that uses stickers so it won’t leave a permanent mark on the beams.  Or I guess you can always wrap the fishing line around the beam.

The 3M removable hooks should work.  They come in different sizes and colors.

The 3m adhesive hooks are remarkably strong and durable and come off just as clean as they say they will.  I have some stuck to my brick home for hanging seasonal decor…and they have been out in the weather for 4 years now.    We use them at my office all of the time.

I think the 3M hooks will work – they now come in multiple types of “hooks” including ones for hanging frames, loops (for cords) and more.

Also what about those speakers (?) or are those vents?  Can you loop any fishing wire through there?  What about finding other brides who’ll be marrying there or have already?  Could you ask the hotel for photos of past weddings to check out their decoration ideas?

got any other photos you could post?

I know this answer may be a bit too late but in case anyone else is trying to do the same thing…perhaps suction cups with hooks will work if lanterns are light enough…let me know if this will do the trick!:) Best wishes to all
