Sky Lanterns!

Recommended Posts


Question for you - Did you guys say anything before you released them?  I am trying to figure how to get our guests down to beach after our reception and what, if anything, we should say about the lanterns.

We released ours right on the beach. You need to make sure nothing is nearby (ie beach palapas) as they do not go right UP, they float for a bit and gravitate up. Hope this helps!

This was a surprise for our guests, so when the reception concluded, our DJ/MC made an announcement asking our guests to join the bride & groom on the beach for a special surprise. We al walked down to the beach together, and our WC had two hotel workers unwrapping the the lanterns, and handing them out to guests. The kerosene cans were already lit and in the sand. I gave a demo as to what to do (the lighting process, and then everyone went ahead and started sending them off!

That sounds exactly what I want to do!  The only thing about our resort is that the place where we are having the reception is a pretty far distance to the beach.  There is a train to take guests, so maybe we can all pile onto that.

I LOVE the lanterns!!!! I saw them in the movie Tangled and fell in love with the idea!! lol oh the things you learn from disney movies:) Does anyone know if there are any restrictions to using these? I guess it must be decided by the resort, but just wondering if anyone has actually used them in mexico? As i was looking for them i came across a youtube video on lanterns gone wrong... lol has me a little worried

Hey Katie! Take a read through the thread! I used sky lanterns at my recent wedding in Los Cabos (at Dreams). Check with your resort, looks like every one has their own rules. Cheers!

I've seen them at a wedding before.. they are so much fun. But make sure you know where the wind is blowing beach one ended up in a tree and the guests were using a hose to put out the fire.

:( that is too bad. You would think given the fire retardant paper and the nearby ocean, fire wouldn't be a huge worry!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
