I am! Hobby Lobby has their lanterns on sale every other week for 50% off. Find one you like and if it’s not on sale this week, it will be next week! Get a raincheck with the sale price if they don’t have enough and you want to be sure they will cover your needs.

rmr626:  Gorgeous lantern. Generally you want centerpieces to be less than 14″ high so your guests can converse across the table.

Remember to check http://www.tradesy.com and http://www.searchtempest.com  (this site searches all Craigslist and Kijiji ads). Many brides sell their decor after the wedding.

I used the Ikea lanterns (the larger ones). I first thought they were too tall, but our tables were pretty wide so felt they worked very well. I bought the flowers wholesale and made the wine bottle lables which were our table names. I also saved money on our ceremony decor by using them and having the staff transfer to tables after the ceremony.

futuredevine :  how did you get the flowers to stay in the lanterns? Floral foam? It would be AWESOME to know the details!

My florist is letting us use lanterns that she already has and had used for her daughter’s wedding. She decorated them with vines on top,  and beautiful flowers pouring out from all sides with a candle in the middle. I’m just a little worried that they are 17 inches tall and I don’t want them to block the views of the guests? She said they will be okay with the size tables we have. This this is the actual lantern,  but she put dry flowers just  to give me an idea….not the actual flowers we’re using.

She is using the flowers from my bridesmaids bouquets inside to give an idea:

harleybeachbride6 :  You can easily check yourself to see if you are comfortable with a 17″ high centerpiece. Set something up on your dining room table that is 17′ high. Have someone sit across from you and see if you can converse easily across the table, without having to lean to one side.
