I believe CJ said she used the same ones I just posted and used around 24-28. So if you use 8 and 12 inch you might to go upwards to 30-35 plus extra in case some break. That happened to me today:/

I actually only ordered what you see in the picture. I just wanted to get an idea of how it all looked. Depending on if I need a large amount I might go with orientaltrading since they sell them in sets of 6 for $10 or something inexpensive like that.

#calgarybride2015 thank you for the sweet comment

@@carrieandsam I just looked at CJ's profile and was unable to find the sizes she got...I read so much all the time and then forget  where I read it ...I exactly forget when I am ready to place orders ugh!!! 

I dont know how many I should order, I had something like 25 for 12" I just dont want to make a mistake

Anyways...I agree and love your colors...Oriental Trading might have super duper deals!

"No worries. I stressed over this and bought so many different colors to see what I liked before finally deciding. (Side note...we brought fishing line so they could hang the lanterns) I bought pink, mint and white. 12in, 16in, 20in. If I remember correctly I think we decided to not use all of the 20 inch as they were pretty big. I would not go smaller than 12 in. We bought 28 lanterns but I think we only used 24 of them. Sorry it's been a few months so hard to remember. We did not buy lights for the lanterns. The center lantern they put up was on a light, so it lit up."

hey Carrie - I used the orange ones from luna bazaar - here's the color (same as the parasol): 

 

No caption

 
and here's how they looked hanging up (at EDR). I also had various sizes. 
 

 

love all of your colors!!! 

 
on the DIY throws - many of mine had the paper slip out and they "turned on" in transit to Mexico. so several of them had dead batteries for our wedding. not a huge deal as I made plenty extra. you may want to hold off on making those until much closer to your date, or if you can wait until you get there even. 
 

I ordered some paper lanterns from paperlanternstore.com. These are the colors I am using and might mix in some white or rose quartz from lunabazaar.com The orange is not the orange I am looking for so I am ordering another orange from lunabazaar.com. I ordered 20inch, 16inch and 12inch. Not sure I am a fan of the 20 inch and might replace it with 14 inch so there is only 2 inch difference in the sizes. Also resting against the orange lantern are the fans I will have at each place setting at the reception and these fans come with an organza baggy that has a thank you tag. I will place LED throwies in these too. Once I make those I will post ;)

I found submersible lights at www.birando.com not sure if Katy has them. I defiantly want to use them in centerpieces, it would help light up the table. I found a runner at bbjlinen.con I really liked that is mexican themed and has all my colors. I have a few ideas in my head so I am waiting til I go down in March to see what looks best. I can't decide if I want he runner on just white cloth and yellow napkins or the runner with a yellow overlay and white napkins or have the runner and alternate overlay color between yellow and my blue. With the different color of overlays I fear it would not look like a wedding but on the flip side I am going for very bright vibrant color...

But lomas does have organza overlays so I think it would still look elegant eithereay
