Beach wedding inspiration!

Dreaming of a beach wedding? Its easy to create a simple yet elegant theme, without blowing the budget on decorations!


Paper lanterns are a cost-effective decorating idea! You can style your wedding or event in subtle whites or ivory, or add just a hint of colour, or make it as bright and colourful as you like! With a huge variety of colours (over 30 available), prints and textures, you can find something to suit any theme or colour scheme! Great for daytime events, and even more fabulous for sunset and evening weddings! There are plenty of portable led lantern lighting options available for your lanterns, so you can create the beautiful, romantic glow of lantern lights at any location, no matter how remote!


 The paper lanterns are light-weight, and all come folded flat, so are super easy to transport to your venue, or take them with you if having an international wedding! These beautiful pictures will surely give you some inspiration!! I love this location in Bali - what a stunning location for a wedding! (images from
