Lantern Wedding Ideas for Lighting Your Space


Hanging lanterns for lighting at your tented or outdoor reception is actually a fairly cost effective way to light the night’s sky above your guests.  The lit globes are easy accents and can sway in the wind if that’s a factor for your destination location.  But beyond that, they can be beautiful too!  Decorate your day from top to bottom with these celebratory and oh-so stylish lanterns for your wedding.  Hang streamers, add pops of color, even create your own from string!  Take a look at a few of our recent faves.

Wedding Cakes Around the World

We do things a little different here in the states, not every country serves up a swanky three tiered wedding cake.  Some (like Italians) make the cake in front of the guests during the reception, while others (like the French) serve up pastries stacked to make a cake.  Here are a few wedding cakes from around the world to inspire your sweet side on the big day!
