String Lights/ Paper Lanterns

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I am getting married at Secrets and was wondering if anyone brought string lights and paper lanterns with them and what the cost was for them to set it up. Also were they able to give you how long the space will be and if there will be outlets to plug them into and trees or posts to hang off of.

I just reached out to Secrets St. James/WO and got a response they quotes me $370 per string light so $740 in total to just set them up. In there extras book it lists the cost of getting the lighted paper lanterns as an extra as $370 total with them providing all of the lanterns and lights. I am trying to save money by bringing them my self and I know a lot of brides have done this. I don't understand why me bringing it results in the cost being double if I bought from them to set up. Does anyone have any advice?

I don't know what the resort policies are but they can differ from one resort to the next. I've heard so many of the ladies here dealing with the costs over lighting and so on. It does seem sometimes like the resorts are just making it up as they go along. They work very hard at having their preferred vendors used.


Maybe one of the other ladies will chime in on the lighting. I've never used it and we aren't allowed to use it in the restaurant where we're going. I wish I could be more help.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
