      30; 10 in 3 different sizes and I'm really just taking a stab in the dark with that number :) I was told by a friend to bring more but I already have tons of stuff to bring so I figured 30 couldn't be too sparse, right?

        Right! Especially, if you'll have to put the lights in them yourself lol

            A couple sites I found are lunabazaar.com and shojidecor.com

            I just started looking on ebay as well.

              Exactly my FI is on the project of putting together the LED lights and batteries to hang in them. I'm thinking of doing white Christmas lights too, do you girls think that's too much to hang them from lights also?

              The place I bought them from which after shipping costs and all that was the cheapest was Paper Lanterns, Chopsticks, Japanese Kimono, Chinese Dresses, Asian Wedding Favors

                I bought 10, 14" white ones from Ikea. It cost me $100 and I used them twice and was then able to sell the 8 that made it back home for $25...my wedding group was 30 guests if that helps.

                    I am thinking of buying the chinese lanterns and bringing them as well, you ladies brought lights as well though - the resort didnt provide that never would have occured to me
