I understand there is no light included with the lantern, but is there metal of some sort in the bottom of the lantern or is the lantern totally lace? Thank you.
Thank you for your inquiry. The item will come with a paper lantern shade and a metal wire frame.There is a top opening and bottom opening on the lantern shade, which is to accommodate the metal wire frame and expand the paper shade into shape. There will be a "C" hook located at the middle/top of this wire frame. Lighting and fishing wire are sold separately.

Can the ivory lace fabric lantern sit without collapsing or does it have to hang? Looking for it to sit for a centerpieces at a wedding
Unfortunately there is a hole at the bottom that sticks out just a bit, due to the metal expander that the lantern needs to hold its shape. If you wanted it to sit still, you would have to create a stand for the lantern. If you are looking for centerpiece lanterns that will sit still, we do have some here http://www.paperlanternstore.com/centerpiece-table-lanterns.html.
