As I sit here writing this post, I'm looking at a grouping of lanterns all ready to go for today's New Years Day wedding and it got me to thinking. It's now 2016, lanterns have been popular wedding decor for the last 5 years or so, do I think this trend will continue? I'd say Yes.
Not only because our today's bride Kristen has chosen them for her table decor (and yes, she borrowed these lanterns from a friend who probably used them at her own wedding) but because I've met with several other future brides who are also interested in going down the "lantern route" somewhere in their decor.
In the case of today's wedding, the lanterns really fit her rustic feel with accents of gold (the lanterns are cream with gold antique brush strokes) and by adding accents of gold seeded eucalyptus, berries and fresh rosemary to the top of each table lantern, helps to bring the look together with all of the person flowers she has chosen. Above is one of the bride's maids bouquets of Vendela cream roses, seeded eucalyptus left natural, burgundy hypericum berries, rosemary and curly willow. Will this natural, organic, lantern trend continue into 2016 and my guess would be yes. Happy New Year everyone!!
