Not sure where the cheapest place is to buy the lanterns but as far as LEDs go I know those can be kinda expensive, if YouTube led throwies they are simple to make and you can buy all the parts on eBay super cheap

I purchased paper lanterns from  JustArtifacts.  I ordered 28 total and the shipping was expensive at about $30.  The total bill was $78 but it was delivered to our house with no additional duties and I didn't have to spend hours searching in the stores.  Ha, ha, at MIchael's today I saw one lantern for $7.99! 

 

I've ordered the components from ebay to make the LED throwies to put in them.  I haven't received them yet but they are coming from China, super cheap with no shipping charges.  Batteries and lights will be less than $10.

 

There is a great thread on here somewhere about this topic. That's how I got the idea.  It's a very long thread but I plan on reading it over carefully again before I assemble the led lights because there are some very good tips from other brides.

It's a single long-lasting LED light that is attached to a battery and magnet.  

 

 

There's a forum with lots of explanation on how to make them.

    • 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.
