Paper lanterns are a charming addition to any outdoor or indoor DIY wedding. Hung from ceilings, rafters or trees, paper lanterns add visual interest and draw the eye up. Depending on the location and time of day of your wedding and reception, you may decide to use these lanterns with string lights or flameless candles, or not light them up at all. Paper lanterns come in many sizes and colors to accent your Denver wedding style.
Paper lanterns are a fabulous way to add diffused accent lighting to your backyard wedding. Denver weddings have an advantage since the weather is so often sunny and dry. You will not have to worry, much, about your paper lanterns being caught in the rain. Small lanterns are cute, oversized lanterns can be dramatic. Multiple lanterns in the same size and color are a cohesive design accent. Multiple lanterns in different sizes and colors add pops of interest. No matter how you use them, have a few extra on hand in case of rips or tears during setup. Interested in other ways to add accent lighting to your Denver wedding and reception?
