What size of paper lanterns?

Recommended Posts

I want to order my paper lanterns for our wedding, but I'm uncertain about which size to order.

 

What is the size that other ladies bought for their lanterns that they hung at their wedding?

 

This is the area of where I'll be stringing my lanterns from.

I'm thinking 16 inch, but I have no idea?

They are much bigger than you think once you open them up. 16 would probably be pretty good for this area. Are you doing just one color? We have 4 different colors we are hanging. Our cream ones are 10", blue are 8", pink are 12" and then we're doing 8" for the green as well. We decided to do different sizes to make is it unique and not just uniform.

Both my fiance are afraid of colour, so we are just doing plain white. LoL. I'm thinking that maybe we will buy some LED Christmas lights and string the lanterns through them.

 

Just need to email my WC and see if this is possible. LoL.

Our main colors are fushia and aqua blue, but we've added in a bit of lime green. We decided to do some cream lanterns though, so its not so circus looking w/ all the colors.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
