So Dazzling and Lovely: Lanterns for a Summer Wedding

Wedding lanterns for an outdoor summer wedding

The love affair of lanterns and weddings seems to be making a comeback. And we couldn’t be more delighted! From tabletop centerpieces to stairway accents to wedding aisle decor, lanterns have such an appeal about them that’s an immediate styling plus. This gorgeous garden dessert table featured in Blowout Party, for example, was actually published a couple of years ago. But it’s so fresh and charming, it’s perfect inspiration for today’s summer weddings (you must check out all the lovely photos)!

Just See How Pretty Lanterns Can Be!

This elegant display shows lanterns used to grace the beautiful display of desserts and drinks, to serve as a quaint decor piece atop a wooden step ladder, and to hang overhead from tree branches. Plus they’re all prettied up with peach and pink flowers to enjoy by day. Then, just imagine when the candles inside are lit up at night. Magic!
