For an idea what about a cute crystal lamp with a floral arrangement around the base? You could easily make with florists foam (cut a hole to sit the lamp in) and stab in a bunch of silk flowers or hand made flowers with greenery filler?

nirava : Your dress is stunning! However I agree with some of the other people here on the lampshade. It’s a no for me. Why don’t you try the ikea lanterns (I think $7) or a bird cage with a candle inside? I bought a few birdcages at CVS for about $8 each. You can also look at rentals. My mom started a party supplies rental company this year. Also you can easily resell birdcages and lanterns on craigslist! I think they would be your best bet!

The inspiration pic of the lampshade looks a lot better! I would go with something like that. And it looks almost like it’s just vellum cut in the shape of a shade, that would be really inexpensive to diy yourself. I think everything else looks great! I don’t know if you’ve answered this yet, but where online did you get your dress? And what is the designer? I love it!
