I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing paper lanterns at weddings. Not only are they easy on the budget, but they really are so versatile for so many different parties and celebrations. Of course, when they are used at an incredible wedding like the one below what’s not to love about them?






Thank you again to, Leigh, over at SugarLove Weddings for sending over this amazing wedding. It was such a joy to feature their wedding on Once Wed today! Even though SugarLove is based in Australia, they are available for travel and love to shoot weddings all over so be sure to check out more of their work here.

I simply adore the last 2 weddings you’ve featured. Everything is so dreamy/vintage beautiful. The bride from this wedding is so lovely & I love the suspenders on the men.

I have been doing some research on lanterns and am coming up short on decent prices. Since you mentioned them in this post, could you recommend any good, reasonable vendors? =) I’m getting married in North GA at a B&B in two short months so any good references would help! Thanks!

Hi Emily,

Thank you so much for featuring our day on your fabulous blog. Once Wed was one of my regular stops when planning our wedding (including many hours fantasizing over second hand Monique Lhuillier gowns that I couldn’t afford!). The DIY and styling projects on your site have got to be some of the best and most achievable on the web – thank you for the inspiration.



PS – to stressed out brides drowning in projects, please know that it’s all worth it and being married is rad.
