    I think paper lanterns and lighting in general, can make a world of difference in the look of a reception. Here are a couple of photos with paper lanterns:

        I am planning on doing laterns...but that's as far as I gotten so far LOL! You ladies are so far ahead of me. I just read the DIY forum a few days ago. Now to start shopping. I think I will be aiming for about 20-30 assorted colors and sizes.

          I love the look of lanters but I'm not sure the wedding planner will do this for me. Guess I need to ask.

              What size of paper lanterns are you ladies getting? I am having a really hard time deciding, 8 inch? 10? 12? 14? 16? etc. I did think to mix and match colours and sizes (I am going with yellow, pink, orange) Should I also get white or stick with coloured lanterns?

              i have 12" and think they are PERFECT! 2LED's w/ 1 battery lights it up just perfect!

              i also have Ivory Blue & Green! ( my colours )

                I'm also debating between white lanterns or light pink and purple lanterns! All I have down is the idea right now, but I'm planning on taking the DIY route!

                  I just read the thread about the LED throwies the other day and love the idea.  I'll probably get 30 12" lanterns (I can't see needing that many but good to have extras) but haven't decided if I should get all white or add some yellow

                    I had about 20 lanterns and I didnt use them all where I thought we would.... We had our reception outside by the beach and so they hung some on a string between palm trees. they also used some to line the walkway to the beach - very nice. The wedding coordinator met us at our car and walked us into the reception holding one too. Very cool. I bought some from a dollar store that had little battery operated ights built right in - word of advice - check the lights and the batteries first... :) Good luck
