We're using the lanterns as part of our centerpiece. They are very small. We're putting the flowers from the resort in the center and then 3 lanterns around it. I mainly wanted extra light and I thoguth that would help. They were only $3 a piece. I got them from a place here called Hobby Lobby... not sure if that's everywhere. They don't take up much room at all. I had to order them in bulk from there and they came in boxes of 8. I have a box in my carry on and my mom has 1 in her carry on. Then a few extras wrapped in bubble wrap in our regular suitcase.
I heard that the resort provides a sand ceremony set, but I had already bought ours. Again, from hobby lobby. I also wanted sand to match our colors so I have that too.
I ordered a cake cutting set to match our colors and our cake topper and our toasting flutes were gifted to us as an engagement present so that's why I'm bringing those on my own. I'm sure they provide that stuff if you don't have it.
