    Nope, no lights /c its a day time ceremony.

    The tissue flowers actually don't take up much space at all. a pack of 7 flowers is only an inch thick. I bought the pre-cut kit but i went on martha stewart.com and found DIY instuctions that would save me some $$$. When i do a trial run i'll post pics

      Any thoughts

      We did these for my grandparents anniversary. It took FOREVER to do and the paper rips really easy. Give yourself plenty of time to do them. The overall affect is really pretty though. I had to go back and reform some of them because some of the people helping weren't as picky as me and they ended up lopsided.

      FYI- you can every easily make them too. Just fold 5-6 sheets of paper according style and tie in the middle. Cut the ends either rounded or in a point. Pull apart to form.

        I have seen paper lanterns hung just for some color. I think they still look pretty unlit.

          When you used these, how did you hang them? I'm thinking of using ribbons.
          Luckily my mother and her best friend are coming and they are super crafty and perfectionist so I'm leaving this in their hands! My very first idea was do hanging flowers, similiar to this picture, but then i thought the resort might not hang them the way i want them...

            We used fishing wire so you couldn't see the string. I wish I had a pic. Maybe I will ask my grandma for one.

                It looked really good too. We got lots of compliements. Unfortunately the place where they held the party had really ugly floors. This totally drew the eye away from it.

                    Don't we all!!!! I had to wait until this month to start buying stuff and making final decisions. I was so torn on everything and FI was NO help!! He thought it all looked great (so did I) so neither of us were able to commit. Odd enough eh?
