They charge me $150 or $200 for the entire set up - paper lanterns, table runners, our menus, the shells for the centerpieces, fans & tissues on the ceremony chairs and chair sashes. I don't remember the exact amount now! We paid in cash when we got onsite.
I did the "DIY throwies" - little LED lights with hearing aid batteries. here's a link to the instructions: http://www.instructa...d/LED-Throwies/
They used fishing wire to hang the lights inside the lanterns.
I didn't give them any instructions for hanging them - at that point it didn't matter to me really. But I do like the idea of clusters! Just explain that in your meeting with the onsite WC.
I think the floating candles OR the bags w/ candles (or LED candles) would look great around the pool & walkways. I remember the pool being really dark, so something to light either the edges, or floating on top would be nice. I don't think they had lights on in the pool at night.
Your day is coming up so quickly!!!!! YAY!
Just a little over a month until our big day!! @AllieH I love your paper lanterns hung around, I know you said you had around 40….how much were you charged? Also, what kind of lights did you use for them? HOw did you describe you wanted them up? I was thinking clusters of three?
I was also thinking of using candle bags to put around the perimeter of the pool/walkway but Marisol said the floating candles look better…I've only seen a few pictures with either…any opinions ladies? I'm going for more soft light ambiance.
