    Why are you going to ditch the paper lanterns?  Is there no where to hang them?  I am thinking because of our numbers that we are are going to have to do our reception at the solarium mundaca and from the looks of it, there is no where to hang lanterns.

      Thanks!! I've decided on buying the $8.99 50ft runner from save-on-crafts.com and my friend who is a graphic designer is going to recreate that heart design for me!!!

      Same!! This is what I plan on doing, so I'm hoping that works out!?!

      I'm starting to worry about the amount of things I have to take down!!  I have seen pictures of someone who hung white paper lanterns from the pandero terrace for the cocktail party and it looked really nice.  I was planning on doing that, but now I'm wondering if its really worth trying to find a place to pack them??? What do you think?  It really would be the only decoration that I'll have for the cocktail party...

        I love the idea of paper lanterns and I feel like they won't take up that much room.  When they are folded they are pretty small.  Have you already reserved these spots or are you waiting to talk to the WC?

          I am doing the paper lanterns too, and have already reserved a spot with my WC that would work.

            That's true, they do fold flat. As far as decorations go, I only need to pack orange satin sashes for the chairs, the aisle runner and small vases for my girl's bouquets (unless the resort will let me use 5!?) -- their flowers are going to be my centerpieces for the dinner, I'm keeping it simple.  The big thing is the OOT bags and contents.

             

            Honestly....I had Dulce as a WC who never answered me for anything....I haven't been told that Wilma is my new WC like most of you have!?  Is Dulce gone officially??  Maybe I should email Wilma??  I haven't reserved anything yet because I've never been answered!

              Skadow, are you doing all white, your colors or a mix??  My girls are all wearing a "glacier" blue color, so orange is my accent color.  I was thinking of either doing all white, all orange or a mixture of the two.  What do you think?

                I found lanterns that pack flat....so they shoiuldn't take up too much room in a carry on.  Also, I talked to Yazmin and she said that they will handle putting them up if you bring all the materials that are needed.  (waiting for clarification as to what else she made need ie: extension cords etc.)

                 

                I also sent Lily the decor coordinator a message and her quote for hanging lanterns alone was $400.00!!!  Which is totally crazy.

                 

                I found them for about 15 bucks a strand online. 

                 

                Just an FYI.

                  What was the site you found them on? I couldn't find big lanterns that came in a set so I bought 50 12in lanterns. I also about LED lights for them so I wouldn't have to deal with electricity. I also contaced Lily, she came back with a simlar quote, I passed on it. However I think I am going to go with her and have gold lights on the palms trees near our spot. She wanted $125 for 6 trees.

                    Where did you find yours at for $15 a strand?

                      Does anyone have Wilma's email address?  I want to email her and get my spots reserved for my cocktail social and reception dinner.

                       

                      It makes me very happy that they will put up all of the decorations that we bring.
