Sky Lanterns!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Seeing as I was the thread starter, I thought I would report back! We DID just use these at our wedding in Cabo on Wednesday. The lanterns are HUGE! My coordinator had two resort staff + herself unwrapping the lanterns on the beach to hand out to my 35 guests. They had 4 kerosene cans lit in the sand to light them fast and easily. I think almost all but maybe 1-2 went up in the air and they were AMAZING! My photographer took 100+ photos, but my wedding was just past Wednesday (I am still in Mexico!) so we won't see pics for a while. The next morning the whole buzz from the guests and the entire resort was over these lanterns!!! DO it!!!

So happy to hear these were everything you thought they would be! I can't wait to have these on our day! And good idea with the kerosene cans to help light them all faster! I will definately mention that to my WC. I am so excited for our pictures! :)

Did the majestic wedding coordinator confirm they were ok with using these?  I was told by a few other brides that the majestic wont let you use them but I am so in love with these!!!

We are actually having our ceremony and reception off of the resort. So hopefully the restaurant will allow us to light them off! I need to check with them, thanks for reminding me! :)

 

I am also in love with these! I sure hope they have no problem with them! They would make for amazing pictures!

Thanks for sharing that eBay seller's name! I did some more research on it, and having wire-free ones might make the resort more likely to let us have them. Still need to check to be sure (fingers crossed!)

There's a variety of sizes you can get.  Check them out online and you'll get a better idea of dimensions.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
