Hanging lanterns, sometimes known as Chinese lanterns, are a great decor item to really make your wedding unique. They are best used in venues with high ceilings or large tents.

By hanging them at various heights one creates a dramatic sense of depth that really enhances the visual appeal of the room and looks great in pictures. In large rooms with high ceilings there is a lot of unused space, lanterns can be used to create a focal point over an important part of the room (ie, the dance floor) or used throughout the room to create a magical floating feeling.

The lanterns can be color coordinated with your wedding color scheme and bring everything together beautifully.

We have been doing a lot of weddings lately at White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville. The room has soaring cathedral ceilings and the lanterns really add a lot and look gorgeous.
