      Wow!! I have become obessed with his idea for months, but thought it wasn't a possibility. Now you guys are giving me hope!!

       

      1. Does anyone know if there is a charge/ will allow the release of these on the beach at Secrets Maroma Beach?

       

      2. How did you get them there? All of the ones I have seen have a fuel cell in them which (as far as I know) are not allowed on planes, carry on OR checked luggage. Did you just ship them right to the resort? I am tempted, but know its going to cost an arm and a leg!!

       

      Any details on this will be a HUGE help!! If you guys are using ones with tealights, or without the fuel cell please let me know where to find them!! :)

       

      Thanks Everyone!! I <3 this forum!! :)

          These are a great idea.  So unique and special.  Just sent an email to my WC asking it they are allowed.  I saw a bride from Moon Palace say it was allowed there so I'm assuming Aventura will allow it too.

              These sky lanterns are so beautiful and hope that we can do this at our hotel, but I also have the same concern that it's prohibited on planes since they're flammable?

                  Still waiting to hear back if Secrets Maroma Beach will allow Sky Lanterns. I will update everyone as soon as my coordinator gives me final word.

                   

                  The ones from "theskylantern.com" ARE allowed on planes, biodegradable and are dosed in a fire retardant as to not catch trees and things on fire IF something goes wrong.

                   

                  Another question, Where are you releasing them? It says you need little to no wind to be able to release them.

                   

                  It seems like it always windy on a beach? Any brides that have used them in the past, please fill me in on how it worked out, windy or not :) Did you release them in a part of the resort (like near a pool) that is less windy?

                   

                  This is a great thread! Thank you everyone!! :) :)

                    If you live in United States www.weddinglanterns.com are actually a better deal since shipping from skylanters.com would be $40 from the UK and also they are a little cheaper too

                      www.theskylantern.com ships from Michigan.

                       

                      Shipping from Michigan to Atlanta, GA costs $12.29, with a ship time of approx ~ two days.

                       

                      That is with 30 Lanterns being sent.

                       

                       

                      Perhaps you are referring to a different site?

                       

                      Hope this helped someone :)
