I’m doing paper lanterns and I’m putting in LED throwies into them. It’s just an LED light and a battery that you can get on ebay for pretty cheap.

I’m probably going to get my lanterns of http://www.paperlanternstore.com they seem to have cheaper prices than other places I have looked at. I’m doing blue, brown and white. I think I’m going to get them in 3 different sized per color and 5 of each size.

With the LED throwies, I’ve read that they actually last for days, but I’m going to put one together and see how long is lasts for. If it does lasts for days, I’m just going to hang up the lanterns with the lights already in and turned on the night before.

Koyal Wholesale has pretty good prices too. The cheapest I’ve seen. I’m doing them as well for ceremony and reception, but I found it was cheaper to rent them from a local company by the time I factored in shipping & handling!

I have found the best deals on ebay for paper lanterns.  The LED throwie is a great idea and I have heard that they do last for ages.  My wedding coordinator will be putting them up.  I think it is fairly simple and can be done with clear fishing line.  We are having a combo of fuschia and orange (our colours) in a variety of sizes.

I bought mine from PaperLanternStore.com & love them! Good quality, fast shipping, cheapest prices I’ve found & TONS of colors/sizes. I have 2 colors & 4 different sizes. I’m planning on stringing them together from fishing line in 4 rows (due to venue hanging restrictions), with them spaced apart. No lights for me – our reception area has dimmer lights so I don’t need a light source (sorry if that doesn’t help you). Basically, we just need a ladder to hang the 2 ends of each string (row), so we only have to secure a row, not each individual lantern.

I got mine from orientaltrading.com.  $13 per dozen in lots of different colors.

I did a test run with the LED throwies and it lasted for 10 (TEN) days!! So you should be fine going that route! Have fun!

We lit our paper lanterns by plug-in. I hated the LED lights because no matter how clear they claimed the lights were they all glowed blue. We loved it and it gave such a romantic warm glow to our reception

I bought all mine at dollartree.  They lasted 18 – 36 hours depending on the brand of batteries.  I, too, thought the leds glowed blue so I didn’t go that route.
