Sky Lanterns!

Recommended Posts

@MTruvillio and capecodder - Thank you!

 

@Away DC - I didn't ask my WC as much as I told her ;) I wasn't the first to do this at my resort, though, because they had a set up for it (kerosene cans in the sand). I originally wanted fireworks, but they were going to charge something obscene like $1000 per minute. This cost $100 and everyone is still talking about it!

Well Moon Palace confirmed we are allowed to have the Wish Lanterns!!!! Yay! Now I just need to figure out how many we will need, look for the best prices, and figure out how to present them at the reception! I was thinking about using a basket or something to put them in...and I think the little wish jar is a great idea! Any ideas/thoughts?

I so wish I could do this.  My resort (GCR) stated that it would be an additional $300 fee to release these.  I was thinking that we could avoid the fee and do it on the beach, not on resort grounds.  Thoughts?

OMG! Thank you for sharing. These are amazing. I just got goosebumps. :) We are thinking of doing this at our AHR. I also love the floating water lanterns which we might float on the pool at the AHR. How romantic. :)

So excited to see that everyone is having such fantastic experiences with the wishing lanterns.  My good friend from college is from Taiwan and was telling me about their New Years celebrations where they send thousands of these off at a time.  She then sent me a video of one of these celebrations and I was so amazed I knew I wanted to do something similar at my wedding.  

 

Our wedding coordinator at the restaurant we are celebrating at has okayed the use of them, but cautioned us that if it's too windy it won't be allowed.  Fingers crossed that the wind lays low and that we get to experience all those wonderful wishes taking flight.  I wish you all the best of luck with your weddings and with your lanterns!

 

P.S the use of the kerosene pots in the sand is brilliant!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
