- Wedding: September 2012
I don’t know if anyone else on here from Canada has been having a really hard time finding Chinese lanterns that are both cheap AND ship to Canada, but I just wanted to share my awesome experience after FINALLY finding some!
I saw the ad on here for http://www.jadetime.com when they were having a special giveaway of a gift certificate to one lucky bee. When I checked their prices out I was floored, but skeptical. The only lanterns I’d been able to find that shipped to Canada were around $6 EACH. These guys were advertising from 98c each and up. So I sent an email in inquiring about their shipping, they did me up a quote to ship to Canada, and I placed my order!
So here’s what I got:
6 x 20″ Ivory
Then 6 EACH of 16″ and 12″ in 3 colors – Ivory, Neon Green, and Yellow
And then 12 EACH of the 8″ in all 3 colors – Ivory, Neon Green, and Yellow.
So 78 lanterns total. My cost was $140 (including the shipping to Canada from the US) – making a breakdown price per lantern of $1.79 EACH. And I got quite a lot of the large-sized ones.
The extra bonus: I wanted one pink lantern for my sister-in-law for her nursery (she’s due in June) and I asked them for it after my order went through, so they gave me a complimentary lantern!
I’m SO happy – I was really worried we’d have to pay an arm and a leg for them, or alternately have so few that it looked weird and sparse at the wedding. Thanks so much Jadetime, and specifically Claudia from their customer support! I can take pictures in September to show you all the finished look!
