      Any DRC brides:


      The WC @ Dreams Riviera Cancun had told us that we could use these, so I bought them for our wedding (Dec 3rd, 2011). Well, when we got there, the WC told us our previous WC (who is no longer there) was mistaken and we could NOT use them, because they are located in a protected area. Way to tell me that AFTER I purchased them...So bummed- I was so excited to use these! Anyhow, the only reason I didn't argue with her is because it was super windy, and we couldn't have set them off anyway. So just be aware...

        Does anyone know if Dreams Palm Beach Allows these? I am absolutely in love with the idea!

          I think that I'm still going to ask my WC at aventura palace if I can use these. I love the idea, and perhaps its the wording. One bride mentioned that she just made the wc aware, didn't ask permission. Also, mentioning that you are purchasing the 100% biodegradable lanterns may help the situation. Of course, wind would be an understandable reason to not allow it that night. I think its still worth a try, even if some brides may have been told no. 

          Does anyone have video of the floating lotus lanterns? I wondered if those were as breathtaking as the sky lanterns are.

            Has anyone done this in Punta Cana? I'm getting married at the Hard Rock Punta Cana, and i'm scared to ask them because they denied my request for fireworks.

                I think these would be great and make for awesome pictures.  I am going to email the WC in Punta Cana and see.  I would be too afraid to just get them and see!

                  Hello to all - Sky Lanterns are  being banned in various parts of the UK and North America because of the fire potential. And in coastal areas, they have been the cause of several "ocean search & rescue" teams being sent out for no reason.


                  There's a fantastic new product just on the market here in the UK and I *think* it is already available in North America.  It is called Flying Wish Paper - you can see it at www.flyingwish.co.uk.  A really fun activity for a wedding or any other gathering!  Hope you all like it as much as I did!  They say it is supposed to be for indoors, but we lit them in a courtyard behind the pub!
