Sky Lanterns!

Recommended Posts

Wow!! I have become obessed with his idea for months, but thought it wasn't a possibility. Now you guys are giving me hope!!

 

1. Does anyone know if there is a charge/ will allow the release of these on the beach at Secrets Maroma Beach?

 

2. How did you get them there? All of the ones I have seen have a fuel cell in them which (as far as I know) are not allowed on planes, carry on OR checked luggage. Did you just ship them right to the resort? I am tempted, but know its going to cost an arm and a leg!!

 

Any details on this will be a HUGE help!! If you guys are using ones with tealights, or without the fuel cell please let me know where to find them!! :)

 

Thanks Everyone!! I <3 this forum!! :)

These are a great idea.  So unique and special.  Just sent an email to my WC asking it they are allowed.  I saw a bride from Moon Palace say it was allowed there so I'm assuming Aventura will allow it too.

These sky lanterns are so beautiful and hope that we can do this at our hotel, but I also have the same concern that it's prohibited on planes since they're flammable?

Still waiting to hear back if Secrets Maroma Beach will allow Sky Lanterns. I will update everyone as soon as my coordinator gives me final word.

 

The ones from "theskylantern.com" ARE allowed on planes, biodegradable and are dosed in a fire retardant as to not catch trees and things on fire IF something goes wrong.

 

Another question, Where are you releasing them? It says you need little to no wind to be able to release them.

 

It seems like it always windy on a beach? Any brides that have used them in the past, please fill me in on how it worked out, windy or not :) Did you release them in a part of the resort (like near a pool) that is less windy?

 

This is a great thread! Thank you everyone!! :) :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
