Chinese Paper Lantern Questions??

Recommended Posts

I planning to use chinese lanterns at the outdoor reception and I have many questions?

-Which ones to use Nylon Lanterns or Paper Lanterns?

-Has anyone used Partylights.com, lunabazaar.com, paperlanternstore.com, asianideas.com or any other websites. How was your experience ordering online?

-Did anyone buy the 10 light socket cordkits? how were they?

-Color Lantern vs White Lanterns? With color i'm worried that they look beautiful online and not so great inperson

-What size to use ?

Any advice on using lanterns??

Thanks everyone..

Did you get a response or end up ordering? I am interested in the turquoise ones but will have to pay for expedited shipping, so I want to really like them!

 

I had one more question - would they stay upright if you were to sit them on the sand?

I ordered Battery operated lanterns. I've decided not to use them. The battery operated lanterns were really nice (great color I ordered 2 types of pink) but they didn't give enough light for what I needed.(my venue is really, really dark) I did a test run on the batteries. I turned them on in the morning and late at night they were still on. (but the light dims) They do stand on their own. (battery operated have a plastic base) But I think a little wind can blow them away. Hopes this help let me, know if you have any other questions :)

I too, am going to use lanterns. I am going to use them with an LED tealight as part of my table centerpieces. I am also debating on whether paper or nylon will allow more light through. If anyone knows, I'd be happy to hear their opinions!

What size lantern did you girls end up using? I am so bad at math and anything number related. The sizes are between 6 inch-20 inch? I want them to be the "normal" med size. How many inches would that behuh.gif!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
