I bought two of the lanterns, one in pale yellow and another in sage green, so that I could test out their color, size, and strength before using several to string up against the pillars of an open air pavilion for my outdoor wedding next to the Savannah River.

Both were exactly the colors shown - which will match perfectly with my theme - and they're very easy to put together and take apart. Because they are only ten inches across, they're definitely going to be better in larger numbers, but at this price that's not a problem! Besides, after the ceremony they will still be fun to keep around for parties at home.

The only thing to watch out for is the paper's fragility: you have to be a little slow about unfolding the lanterns the first time, and be careful not to cause any punctures when putting in the metal support square that keep each lantern open. After they've been opened, they're fairly sturdy.

These will definitely be perfect for the big day!

Smaller than expected

The colors are vivid and well represented by the pictures, however they are expensive for the size and without a hanger or light.

Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop paper lantern:

This was the best price that we found for these anywhere! They were beautiful and exactly how they looked online. They're a LITTLE bit flimsy so be careful when you're handling them, but I would assume that would be the case with all paper lanterns.

        I ordered 20 of these, 10 in purple and fuschia and they looked really nice. However, they were a bit flimsy and I hesitated putting any kind of lights in them for fear they would break.

          These lanterns added a lot of pizzazz to my daughter's bridal shower. We were in a room with a drop ceiling so they were easy for us to hang. We had an extra lantern and placed it on a coffee table with some confetti and pinecones. It looked real nice too :)

              Both the large and small lanterns were sturdy and enhanced my "elegant rustic" theme. They did not come with lights, so we opted to go without. They still looked great.

              Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop paper lantern:

              I order black and white lanterns in both sizes and 3 shades of purple to see which ones I liked and I loved them all. Although they are different shades they all go together well and are adorable. Very pleased with my order. However I did expect them to have a place for a light bulb because it makes it sound as though they come with that option but they dont. I wanted lighting but I am equally happy without it. They are still a good buy, lighted or not.

                I love these paper lanterns! I ordered 20 white lanterns for my backyard reception. These will be great for hanging on the trees, etc. I also went to my local craft store and found small lights to hang from the inside of the lantern. They are very pretty when lit up!

                I bought white small ones and large Aqua ones. The Aqua color is more of a light blue not an Aqua. But, since they were so cheap it didn't matter too much and for our wedding we are having tons of different colors of blue. Great for a beach wedding.

                                I bought two of the lanterns, one in pale yellow and another in sage green, so that I could test out their color, size, and strength before using several to string up against the pillars of an open air pavilion for my outdoor wedding next to the Savannah River.

                                Both were exactly the colors shown - which will match perfectly with my theme - and they're very easy to put together and take apart. Because they are only ten inches across, they're definitely going to be better in larger numbers, but at this price that's not a problem! Besides, after the ceremony they will still be fun to keep around for parties at home.

                                The only thing to watch out for is the paper's fragility: you have to be a little slow about unfolding the lanterns the first time, and be careful not to cause any punctures when putting in the metal support square that keep each lantern open. After they've been opened, they're fairly sturdy.

                                These will definitely be perfect for the big day!

                                I got these and while they're beautiful and a good quality, they use bulbs. I guess I didn't read well enough before I placed my order. Still trying to figure out how to use those artificial candles in them. Great idea if you've got the lighting though!
