    Question for you - Did you guys say anything before you released them?  I am trying to figure how to get our guests down to beach after our reception and what, if anything, we should say about the lanterns.

    We released ours right on the beach. You need to make sure nothing is nearby (ie beach palapas) as they do not go right UP, they float for a bit and gravitate up. Hope this helps!

        This was a surprise for our guests, so when the reception concluded, our DJ/MC made an announcement asking our guests to join the bride & groom on the beach for a special surprise. We al walked down to the beach together, and our WC had two hotel workers unwrapping the the lanterns, and handing them out to guests. The kerosene cans were already lit and in the sand. I gave a demo as to what to do (the lighting process, and then everyone went ahead and started sending them off!

          That sounds exactly what I want to do!  The only thing about our resort is that the place where we are having the reception is a pretty far distance to the beach.  There is a train to take guests, so maybe we can all pile onto that.

            I LOVE the lanterns!!!! I saw them in the movie Tangled and fell in love with the idea!! lol oh the things you learn from disney movies:) Does anyone know if there are any restrictions to using these? I guess it must be decided by the resort, but just wondering if anyone has actually used them in mexico? As i was looking for them i came across a youtube video on lanterns gone wrong... lol has me a little worried

              Hey Katie! Take a read through the thread! I used sky lanterns at my recent wedding in Los Cabos (at Dreams). Check with your resort, looks like every one has their own rules. Cheers!

                  I've seen them at a wedding before.. they are so much fun. But make sure you know where the wind is blowing beach one ended up in a tree and the guests were using a hose to put out the fire.

                    My hotel doesn't allow them because of the fire risk :(

                      :( that is too bad. You would think given the fire retardant paper and the nearby ocean, fire wouldn't be a huge worry!
