DIY Lantern Decor | Toledo Wedding Planner | Perrysburg Wedding Planner

We think lanterns are a beautiful way to dress up your wedding so when we found this blog we couldn’t help but share. There are some seriously gorgeous ideas here and you can do them all yourself! Remember, YPD can always help too!

I know what you are thinking: paper and outdoors?? Well, perhaps not permanantly, but for those non-rainy summer gatherings, you will want your outdoors do be as fun and welcoming as your indoors. Paper is inexpensive, comes in a bazillion varieties, and makes a big impact! Here’s a big tip: start with a ready-made paper lantern and gussy it up a bit!
