Things I Love | Lanterns

Today I wanted to share another wedding trend that I’m in love with. Lanterns. They are just so magical.






…In a tree…


And… an amazing trend right now (although I admit I have no idea how complicated or expensive this may be to pull off) is sending lanterns into the night sky at the end of the wedding… Tangled style. (Or that hilarious Bachelorette episode in which she kept calling the lantern their “love wish”… and then a dog peed on it. Awesome.) It makes for incredible photos, and I’m sure creates a fairy tale, happily ever after kind of feeling for the couple and their guests.


So magical. Sigh.


What do you think? Too much?

No, not too much at all. SO BEAUTIFUL! I love this trend so much, and the more lanterns present, the better it is!

i LOVE them! my one disappointment with having an indoor wedding is there isn’t really an appropriate time to do chines wish lanterns…

No way! I really want to do that at the end of my wedding just in the street. Good thing for restaurants in residential areas!

It’s almost scary how on the same page we are….I’ve been wanting paper lanterns, hydrangeas (honestly the only flower I care about!), Beatles (of course!), and babies breath in mason jars ever since I started planning for my wedding in June! I know I’ve said it before, but I LOVE this blog! :)
