@TheEditrix: Welcome to Weddingbee!  Here are some tips for you:

Removing HTML:  Before you copy and paste into the Weddingbee editor, copy and paste your message into MS Notepad.  This will remove all the HTML code and make it MUCH easier to read your posts.

To search old posts: Use the Google search bar located at the top right hand of every Weddingbee page.  It will search through Weddingbee, finding everything on the topic you’re looking for.  You can refine your search to the Boards, the Blogs, the Wiki,  and the Classifieds as well.

Editing your post: You should have an "Edit" link on the bottom of your post next to how long ago it was posted.  You can click on this link and manually delete the HTML code.

To add pictures to your post: Browse to the image you want.  Make sure that it is small enough to upload (uner 150KB and fits in the browser window).  Also make sure it is a supported file extension (jpg, jpeg, png).  Then click Upload.

Again, welcome to the Hive!

On your lantern dilemma:

We used lanterns at a college party once.  The fastes way to hang them is to pre-string all the supporting lines on the canopy.  (Like the day before if they’ll let you.)  Then use christmas ornament hooks (from a craft store like Michaels), attach them to all the lanterns before you get there.  Then when you get there, just hook the lantern, and bend the hooks so they don’t fall off.  As far as tangling the lanterns, we didn’t have the lanterns attached to the bulbs when we transported them.  We got to the restaurant and attached the lanterns to the bulb strings there.

We have the same problem.  We want to hang lanterns over the tables in our reception venue.  But we only have a few hours to do so.  So my plan is to make Paper Lanter Mobiles!  We want to have 5 lanterns over each of our 15 tables.  My plan is to make a mobile for each table, so instead of having to hang 75 lanterns the day of, we only have to hang 15 mobiles.  I don’t know if this will help with what your vision is, but I figured I would pass it along.
