2. Paper Lanterns
You know, paper lanterns are a decade old but they still have that beautiful charm that no other lighting can give you. Choose bright-coloured ones if you are looking at a kitschy wedding and plain pastel ones, if you want to elegant.

Avant-garde at best, small bulbs with filaments are really retro and fun. They make an evening wedding shine with individuality.
