April 23rd I'd be afraid to do it with both of us in the same month.  Everything will be crazy for us and getting those suckers packaged and finding time to get to the post office to ship them to the other person would be pretty rushed.

My wedding is in September, and depending on the total cost, I would be in!

So I checked with 3 sites so far- and I think at the moment- StagelightingUSA has the best deal.


Here is the breakdown:



I figure 10-12 would work?

PAR 38 Cans

12 cans at 13.96 each will cost 167.52


The bulbs for the Par lights - this is for the 120w (this makes the light look more clear and crisp)
12 bulbs X 6.25  each will cost 75.00

242.52


Shipping is 40.37


I figure we can purchase our own gel colors unless we all want the same ones- and in that case we can throw it in with the order? all other goodies (shipping insurance etc) can be added in the end. I can actually get someone to build stands for it (there is a great DIY article somewhere here on PW- or we can just purchase the stands


But this looks like- for all that expressed interest- could be a little more or less than 41 dollars each.


what do you all think?


once the first bride in order recieves it- she ships to the next etc- and all brides pay for their shipping to them.


 


Please pm me if you are interested in proceeding so we can get the ball rolling.

I would be interested also, my wedding is on 9/10/11.  I'm interested in the stands you can get built too, but would they be really heavy to ship?  How much would materials cost be for those? 


I'm also going for the candlelight (amber) color...


One other question, don't know if you can answer... do they use alot of electricity?  Do you think standard extension cords and outlets, can support it?

My wedding is September. I would like to share the cost with a group of people. Maybe we can group together based on our wedding dates.
