    I just bought all the materials to make throwies and I’m super pumped about them. For all the materials to light 40 lanterns it was $46. I can recommend the ebay sites I ordered them from (which I found on another thread) if you’d like. I don’t think they’re going to be all that time consuming and the savings will be worth it!

    I have a question! Do you make the throwies right before you use them? Also, do you just toss them into the lantern or do you hang it in there. I was just going to buy the LED light that you can hang, I didn’t know there were other options!

    @MissesAwesome:  haha oh ya, you’re pretty close to your wedding so i don’t blame you. sometimes the convenience is worth the cost. my wedding isn’t until february so i am starting soon!



    @CoronaSpeaks:  you can definitely make them ahead of time… there is a way to make an “on” switch… so you can make them and then before you hang them, pull the switch out and they’ll light. i haven’t figured out exactly how i’m going to work it out. i think i will use binder clips and hang them with fishing wire… haven’t figured out the details. if you search here on the bee or in google there’s lots of tutorials and different ways people have done it. (sorry to threadjack, OP!)
