hi luvmoo!

 

can you tell me if you checked with the iberostar rosehall beach WC about these?  i sent her a note today to confirm if this was possible as i didn't want to purchase w/o having the 'official' approval...if you've already gotten it..that would help me out.

 

please let me know.

 

THANKS!!

We are having our dance and such on the beach after dinner as we are doing the bonfire on the beack package at our resort...... so when it is dark out, we will all light the lanterns and then once they are released that is when we are going to do our first dance and the Father Daughter dance etc.. we figure that would make for some amazing pictures! :)

Now that we are doing the bonfire, and dance etc.. on the beach, we will release them, and as they are floating, we will do our first dance :)

I did!! i actually checked several months ago.. on the telephone.. with the supervisor ( before they had the new WC.. it was the supervisor who i spoke with on the phone who confirmed it would be fine to release them) and then just a few weeks ago.. i confirmed via email ( i wanted it in writing) that it would be fine to release sky lanterns.  and this was for the beach!

I'd be interested in going in on bulk lanterns but my wedding isn't until next July and I'm not sure how many I will need yet. 

 

Luvmoo - I LOVE the idea of your first dance as the lanterns are floating away!  That will make for an awesome picture!  I might have to borrow that idea!

Borrow away Darlin!! That's why i shared it!!! i think it is a great idea and will be a beautiful photo op!! and will add to the already beautiful moment... Lord knows i have borrowed enough ideas off of all you  wonderful ladies!! i am just payin it forward!! ahahahah

 

on a second note..  i was looking at my reciept from my lanterns i bought a long time ago.. from weddinglantern.com  and i thought i would let you all know... that i bought 45 lanterns.. on my own not in bulk... and it cost me 106.00 Canadian Including delivery.... so they are very resonable and i love them!!!! just food for though as when i was doing my research i checkled several websites for lanterns and for Canadian brides anyway... this was the cheapest i found includng shipping...

 

 

and they claim on thier website that they are 100% biodegradable... so just something for you to look into should you be inclined :)

Hey everyone, a couple people have asked so just to confirm:

 

I got my lanterns at www.theskylantern.com

 

They shipped in a box of 36 from Michigan, for $99 plus shipping $31 via Fedex (I had these rushed as they were a last minute decision!). 

 

Some people have asked "how big are they?!". In the box, they were flat and individually wrapped, so super easy to get to our destination. When they were unwrapped, they were MUCH bigger than I expected....THIS WAS A GOOD THING. In order for them to make an impact, they need to be BIG! There is a video right on the home page of the website I ordered from that shows a "how-to" and you'll see how big they are when out of the package and fluffed up.

 

They look AMAZING when lit up in the sky. Above everything else at our wedding (except me crying as I walked down the aisle towards my now husband, and making all 37 of our guests cry, too!) this is what everyone has been talking about from our wedding. My photographer showed me pictures right off of her camera the next day at our day-after shoot, and I CANNOT wait to show you. If you can do one thing at your wedding that is a bit above and beyond, this should be it!!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
