Sky Lanterns!

Recommended Posts


Please post if you hear back about Jamaica! I asked my wedding coordinator, but I haven't heard anything back yet. :)

I'm waiting on approval from my resort, they say they are waiting to hear back from the Environmental agaency in Jamaica.

Thanks,

Well, Since I can't use the wishing/sky lanterns, I decided to ask about the floating lotus flowers.

My WC said YES!!! woot.gif So we are going to get one for each guest and have them light them, make a wish for us, and set them in the pool at the reception. They should burn all night, and I think they will create a really cool effect. The WC was a tad concerned they would have to keep lighting them as it is very windy. I am thinking of getting LEDs to put in them. Anyone know a cheap place to order 30 of these??

 

I will be sure to post pictures of this when I return. I figure some other girls that have been told no to the sky lanterns, may be into the idea.

 

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

When I just responded to Lucy at MP again saying how disappointed I was that we couldn't do sky lanterns, she apologized but insisted that we're too close to the airport.  Since you have the go ahead and you've already bought them, would you mind sharing your experiences after your wedding to confirm you sent them??  Then, maybe us brides after you can find a way to make it happen, too!!  Frustrating how we get told different things sometimes... :(

I hope my WC coordinator doesn't tell me I can't do these because I already have them. I will freak out!! We all know how the resorts tell everyone something different.

Our hotel confirmed with the local fire department and environmental agency that a permit (including fee) is required due to the potential fire hazard. If we release them without a permit, and someone reports us, we'll be penalized. More than likely, we'll be reported since most people will not know that these are sky lanterns and may think it's a strange occurrence in the sky. We decided not to use the sky lanterns because we don't want to go through the hassle of getting a permit.

I think that's a good idea. Maybe we'll have better luck once we have some proof that another bride was able to do them.

I can't believe they told you no. They're allowing me to do it. My WC is Valeria. I asked Valeria at MP if we could release the lanterns from the Caribbean Terrace at the end of the reception, because it's on a rooftop and she said we'd have to do it on the beach. Which is fine by me because the beach is only 3 minutes walking distance. I don't like how they tell everyone something different. That's just not fair.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
