It has come time for me to buy the outdoor ceremony decorations…. and Im lost! I am looking for it to turn out something like this…
But with different colors (navy, white, and apple green) like this ^^^
I have two options as far as what to buy when it comes to the paper lanterns because I dont want it to be too much with all the stripes and patterns but I also like the contrast but the navy lanterns seem more elegant.. This is where you come in 🙂 Please vote to tell me which one you think will look better..
NOTE: The pom poms i have are as follows: 4 large apple green, 3white med and 2 apple green med, 4 navy small (range from 16″-6″)
Our venue for reference
There will be apple green flower petals lining the aisle over the darker stones. Chairs lining the aisle will have navy blue sashes and the back row will also have navy blue sashes. Hope this helps everyone with their vote! Thanks so much in advance for helping me make decisions that I stink at 😛

I agree that the accordian style laterns are more elegant, it just depends how dark you like it. But it seems that you have a good amount of green and white poms, and they are super easy to make if you needed more. Will the ceremony be at night, or will the ceremony location double as a reception area so that the laterns are able to be lit?

The patterns are definitely more stylish and interesting, I think they’d look great with your poms!

They are being hung from the pergola. Our ceremony is during the day and the reception is in a building right next to the ceremony site. But the wall adjacent to the ceremony garden is all windows and the garden at night is beautiful with a white lights in the trees and on the pergola and a firepit. I doubt we light the lanterns because one it costs more and two it would be one more thing to remember lol. Idk about you bees but I suffer from major bridal brain at this point.
