So excited to see that everyone is having such fantastic experiences with the wishing lanterns. My good friend from college is from Taiwan and was telling me about their New Years celebrations where they send thousands of these off at a time. She then sent me a video of one of these celebrations and I was so amazed I knew I wanted to do something similar at my wedding.
Our wedding coordinator at the restaurant we are celebrating at has okayed the use of them, but cautioned us that if it's too windy it won't be allowed. Fingers crossed that the wind lays low and that we get to experience all those wonderful wishes taking flight. I wish you all the best of luck with your weddings and with your lanterns!
P.S the use of the kerosene pots in the sand is brilliant!
