Wedding cranes are one of the items that are imbued with lots of folklore. Japanese legend says that that the person that folds 1000 cranes will be granted a wish or eternal good luck. The crane in Japan is a holy creature believed to live for 1000 years (hence the number of cranes). In modern times, still 1000 cranes are given to the bride by the father as a wedding gift and when strung in the home are believed to hold powerful good luck. All this significance means that they are the perfect wedding decoration and one that can be kept afterwards as a memento of the day, although you would need some perseverance to fold 1000 of them!
