Anyone heard of/using SKY LANTERNS?
Posted 25 May 2009 - 08:05 PM
I came across a video for these sky lanterns/floating lanterns and now I really want to use them for our wedding!
YouTube - Sky Lantern sending wishes to the sky
I did have some concerns, ie. safety, didn't want to add to the world's garbage , and if they would even work cuz our wedding is in December and I heard it's pretty windy in Mayan Riviera that time of year...
I did find this from a site that sells them:
100% Biodegradable 100% Flame Resistant
Great for any occasion, big or small, a time to celebrate
Sometimes referred to as "Wishing Lanterns or " Fire Balloons". People have even mistaken these glowing objects in the sky as UFOs.
If you haven't enjoyed the moment of releasing a Sky Lantern, you are missing out
They are constructed from oiled rice paper on either a wire or bamboo frame, and contain a small candle or fuel cell made of a waxy flammable material. When lit, the flame heats the air inside the lantern, causing the lantern to rise into the air (just like a hot air balloon). The Sky Lantern will rise only as long as the flame stays alight, after which the lantern floats gently back to earth
I was also thinking lighting one lantern after we say our vows, like we are sending our vows/prayers to the sky.
I just love the idea of these, anyone else thought of using these/seen them in real life?

- They look to have some nice personalised wedding packages if you follow their link through on the "purchase wedding lanterns section"
Hope this helps
