I think I’m going to decorate my ceremony space with paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling (it’s a covered outdoor patio). What size lanterns do people tend to use? I have no sense of scale. Thanks in advance!

I am doing a similar thing. Hanging paper lanterns inside the tent. I’m considering the sizes between 8-12 inches. I guess it depends on how high the ceiling/cover is. I figure, the larger they are, the less i have to hang, but I don’t want them bumping people in the head. I think 12in. will be the max size I will consider.

i bought an 8 and a 12 but they are really small so i decided to go with the 16 and 18… my advice for you is to buy one of different sizes so you can see them before you decided to buy.

I say go with different sizes, it I am all about scaling.

For my wedding last month, I used 24″, 20″, 16″, and 10″ paper lanterns purchased from Jadetime.com. I found that the 8″ paper lanterns were too small if the venue is medium to large size. I used all different sizes because it gave that spacial look. Also, I hung my lanterns at different heights, which gave that 3D effect.
Hope this helps! Good luck!!!

We used 9″ x 8″ battery-operated lanterns, plus 10″ and 18″ round lanterns. Pictures and information on how we did the lighting can be found at this link.

I used multiple version of larger lanterns, vs the smaller ones. The 8″ & 10″ are quite small. So I had sizes ranging from 14″, 16″, 18″ 22″ and 24″
