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.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
