    Hi ladies!

    Has any one found a website with good deals for paper lanterns and lighting supplies? My wedding is going to be "in the jungle" ... kind of.. no much light around the area where the reception will be , and I'm thinking on filling it up with paper lanterns and lights everywhere, so... any suggestions?

        BTW when I was at Dreams Tulum last week, I printed some of your pics that you took for ideas on hair and aisle set up's and your name was on the pic. Sandra said, "Oh you know Sol....I LOVE HER =)" She said she will be attending your wedding....

          I'm going to get mine at Paper Lanterns, Party Supplies and Chinese Paper Lanterns - PaperLanternStore.com (thanks to suggestions from some gals on this forum) and their prices are pretty decent.

            Hi Sol, I'm Maggie's mom of Maggie and Tadd. I have found quite a few paper lanterns at the Dollar Tree. You can't beat the price!
            Good luck!

            For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

              Hi Sol!

              I got my paper lanterns from asianideas.com , they had pretty good prices.

              I also found a few at the dollar store that were battery powered and sat those on the tables.

              Love your new sig!

                I almost bought mine from PaperLanternStore.com but save myself some money by cancelling and ordering from AsianIdeas.com

                Not sure about pricing on the lighting though.. I assume you'll have generators in the jungle.. do you know how many plugs you'l have available?

                  10" Round Battery Lanterns In Assorted Colors

                  you don't need to plug these...they work on batteries (led bulb...so they last for ever!) 4$ each ! Some are on sale 2.50$ but they are bright colors

                  Now I know why you, your husband and your assistant Vincent couldn't do my wedding pictures ... your getting married just a few days before me (or remarried ! I'm all confused with your 2 dates-one in Mexico one in the States !!!!

                  I wish you a wonderful wedding ... and beautiful pictures !

                    Hmm I know I've seen some at the dollar tree lately but they weren't that good of quality. Maybe my dollartree sucks.

                    I visited your blog Sol, I just love your pictures. Infact I bookmarked it. Your new ring is amazing by the way... it's such a gem!
