I have done this.  The wedding has 150 guests and from the looks of it, was similar in size. We bought different sizes and grouped them together but in close groups. We bought 100 25 small, 50 medium, and 25 large. It was not enough. I am looking for a picture of the room and when I find it I will post it for you.

I like the idea that hotwings has. If you are on a tight budget you could do it for less money with tulle and it would still look nice.  At least in the photo, it looks like it has a low ceiling and I would think paper lanterns would make it appear even lower.

What about bringing the focus to the walls with colored fabric panels instead of the low ceiling?

I think you can do the lanterns and hang them at different heights (but not too low!). They would look awesome with that celiing. More is definitely better. I also recommend a variety of sizes and colors (unless you’re going for an all-white look).

By the way, I searched high and low for the cheapest lanterns and found the best deals (by far) here: http://www.paperlanternstore.com.  I also got a tip from another forum to buy mini-LED flashlight keychains on eBay (you can find them with on-off buttons) instead of the lantern LED lights – they’re a lot cheaper, even if you buy two per lantern!

Another idea is the DIY fringe posted here:
