Hmm. I think it would depend what kind of lanterns you were going for. If you were just doing plain white globes, if they were high enough up they might just look like globe lights. You could also play around with making patterns with them (kind of like chandeliers, if you will).

Personally, I LOVE the look of paper lanterns. But I’m not sure if they’d send a distinctly "traditional" vibe. I DO, however, think that they’re elegant. Modern, yes, but very sophisticated.

I just went to a Chinese wedding.  There were paper lanterns all accross the ceiling of the reception and ceremony areas.   It was quite beautiful.   I had no idea that this was trendy but I thought it was quite an elegant look.   If you like the way it looks, I think you should go with it.
