    Once I receive everything I'll let you know how it all worked out.

     


    Thanks for the links, where did you get your paper lanterns??

      I haven't ordered the lanterns yet, will probably go with either save-on-crafts or asianideas. Either way, I will have them delivered to a U.S. address. The lights will be delivered to Ontario though.

        Hey mochamakes3,

        How did you set up a US address? I've been thinking about doing so after seeing all of the great wedding items that are available in the US.

                How many lanterns are most of your ordering? A bride just got married at the same resort and she had 24 paper lanterns (small and large). I was planning on having them all the same size (larger ones), so do you think I should get 18-20? Just curious to see how many people are taking. I would like to order my lanterns and LED lights this week. Thanks!

                  My sister lives in Virginia so I've had a lot of stuff delivered to her. I think if you contact Mail Boxes Etc. they can provide you with a mailing address.
