I am planning on doing laterns...but that's as far as I gotten so far LOL! You ladies are so far ahead of me. I just read the DIY forum a few days ago. Now to start shopping. I think I will be aiming for about 20-30 assorted colors and sizes.

What size of paper lanterns are you ladies getting? I am having a really hard time deciding, 8 inch? 10? 12? 14? 16? etc. I did think to mix and match colours and sizes (I am going with yellow, pink, orange) Should I also get white or stick with coloured lanterns?


i have 12" and think they are PERFECT! 2LED's w/ 1 battery lights it up just perfect!

i also have Ivory Blue & Green! ( my colours )

I'm also debating between white lanterns or light pink and purple lanterns! All I have down is the idea right now, but I'm planning on taking the DIY route!

I just read the thread about the LED throwies the other day and love the idea.  I'll probably get 30 12" lanterns (I can't see needing that many but good to have extras) but haven't decided if I should get all white or add some yellow

I had about 20 lanterns and I didnt use them all where I thought we would.... We had our reception outside by the beach and so they hung some on a string between palm trees. they also used some to line the walkway to the beach - very nice. The wedding coordinator met us at our car and walked us into the reception holding one too. Very cool. I bought some from a dollar store that had little battery operated ights built right in - word of advice - check the lights and the batteries first... :) Good luck

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
