Candle lanterns were used to bring in light but today they are mostly used for creating an ambience and beautiful décor. A lantern can be used for lining up the aisle, stairs, dessert tables or any other space of your wedding venue or ceremony, and of course a candle lantern is a gorgeous wedding centerpiece or a base for it. It’s very easy to arrange such a centerpiece yourself, and there’s a plenty of gorgeous ideas to try, let me inspire you with them.
Centerpieces With Candle Lanterns
Candles always create a comfy and cozy ambience, wherever you put them, and candle lanterns are amazing for creating a welcoming feel at the table. Choose a lantern according to the look you want to achieve: it can be antique, rustic, modern or any other, and it can be made of metal, wood or both. A wooden candle lantern will be amazing for rustic, backyard and romantic weddings, shiny metal lanterns are amazing for modern and minimalist décor, and antique looking lanterns will bring an amazing touch to many décor styles and themes.
A candle lantern will be a base for creating a centerpiece, and you need to add flowers, flower petals and maybe small candle holders. Florals and foliage should fit your color scheme, style and the florals that you used for decorating other spaces. Bold pink or red roses, or eucalyptus, or just succulents – it’s up to your wedding style and what you like.

Other Centerpieces With Lanterns
A candle isn’t a must for a lantern – fill it with something else to create a unique decoration! Fill your lantern with florals, succulents and greenery that match your wedding décor, put your lantern on a wood slice and surround it with small candles. One more idea is a beach-inspired lantern with starfish and seashells – this is a gorgeous idea for a coastal wedding. Make a book stack and decorate it with lanterns and pinecones for a winter wedding. Get inspired!
