Style and Glasses

The very first thing that you need to consider when you are looking for the right lanterns for your reception is the style that you desire most. You might assume that all lanterns are the same, but some are more formal while others offer a much more casual style.  It all depends on the kind of wedding you are having.   Formal might look great, but you might want to have more color at your reception, and colored ones tend to be a little less formal.  Some have glass and some are open, the ones with glass look a little more formal to me and the open ones tend to take on a more casual, rustic or boho feel.
