I wanted to get everyones opinion! I am taking paper lanterns to hang during the reception on the terrace. For my at home reception I plan on hanging cafe lights and having the paper lanters hang from them for the lights. I don't want to travel with the cafe lights if I don't have to but I wasn't sure if the paper lanterns would look funny hanging without any lights for my reception on the terrace. Any thoughts? Thank you! :)

I'm also having my reception on the terrace and will be bringing paper lanterns as well.  Like many brides who use the paper lanterns, I will make LED throwies. If you don't know what a throwie is than do a search fo 'DIY LED lights' and you should be able to find the thread with pics and instructions. I definitely prefer the looks of lit paper lanterns.

I have some battery LED lights but not enough and I am definitely ordering cafe lights for our at home reception, I just didn't want to have to travel with them. I get nervous about getting stuck in customs over something stupid like cafe string lights!! Thanks ladies :)

Hmm... I'm pretty sure it's on their list of decoration items/serivices but I think they call them something else, however I don't have their wedding guide in front of me to confirm (the 2012 guided that they send you, not the one on the website). Regardless, Pilar is my wedding coordinator and I will supply the lanterns and they will be hanging them for me.

Here is a beautiful wedding reception that was rather recent where they used paper lanterns on the terrace and they were not lit.  I think they still look beautiful

Thank you! They do still look nice...I guess I am just concerned that there will not be enough light to really notice them at night. Are they still pretty noticeable? Mine are fuchsia and lime green.

    • 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?
