    I wanted to get everyones opinion! I am taking paper lanterns to hang during the reception on the terrace. For my at home reception I plan on hanging cafe lights and having the paper lanters hang from them for the lights. I don't want to travel with the cafe lights if I don't have to but I wasn't sure if the paper lanterns would look funny hanging without any lights for my reception on the terrace. Any thoughts? Thank you! :)

      I'm also having my reception on the terrace and will be bringing paper lanterns as well.  Like many brides who use the paper lanterns, I will make LED throwies. If you don't know what a throwie is than do a search fo 'DIY LED lights' and you should be able to find the thread with pics and instructions. I definitely prefer the looks of lit paper lanterns.

          I have some battery LED lights but not enough and I am definitely ordering cafe lights for our at home reception, I just didn't want to have to travel with them. I get nervous about getting stuck in customs over something stupid like cafe string lights!! Thanks ladies :)

              Hmm... I'm pretty sure it's on their list of decoration items/serivices but I think they call them something else, however I don't have their wedding guide in front of me to confirm (the 2012 guided that they send you, not the one on the website). Regardless, Pilar is my wedding coordinator and I will supply the lanterns and they will be hanging them for me.

                  Here is a beautiful wedding reception that was rather recent where they used paper lanterns on the terrace and they were not lit.  I think they still look beautiful

                    Thank you! They do still look nice...I guess I am just concerned that there will not be enough light to really notice them at night. Are they still pretty noticeable? Mine are fuchsia and lime green.
