My fiance and I are using elements from Disney’s Tangled in our ceremony. He really likes the idea of sky lanterns but acknowledges that doing that is not an option, especially in a church. We’d like to duplicate the look of the lantern with LED lights inside and maybe hang them at different heights from the ceiling, but we are unsure how to do that since the ceiling is so high. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas that might help us duplicate the look of the floating lights?
What about using clear plactic wire? It’s a bit stronger than dental floss and it will be hardly noticable. You could also use clear fishing line. I think this idea sounds great and that you could really make them look like real candles if you buy the LED lights that flicker. Play with a few ideas and it will work beautifully 🙂
Thanks for the suggestions. My fiance is the youth pastor of the church, and so they are pretty open to letting him have what he wants as long as it’s all taken down after. 🙂 I like the idea of hanging them, though he’s also suggested having one of the students who is a great artist paint the lanterns. It would be nice in the reception area, especially since it is a very plain gymnasium, but the ceilings are even higher in there and there is less to hang things from. I really like the idea of having flickering LED lights. A lot to think about.
Eeeee! I’m totally using the sky lanterns from Tangled as well. However, we are not using them as decoration, but as a send off (instead of say sparklers). Theyre 100% biodegradable and as long as they don’t mind you lighting stuff outside, you should be fine. Here is a video of them!
