    That is sad.  Wonder if you could do it off the beach somewhere nearby though?  Perhaps the night before your wedding as "pre-wedding wishes"?!

      The places that say no - is it fire concerns, trash concerns or eco-concerns? did they give you a reason?

       

      i think some are biodegradable but i know some arent...so maybe thats the reason?

        Moon Palace won't do it because the resort is so close to the airport, it could interfere with them. It's disappointing, but at least I understand their reasoning.

          Hi ladies!

          Can someone tell me if the lanterns from www.skylantern.com are wire-free? I know they claim to be biodegradable but i'm concerned about the wire pieces going into the ocean or floating elsewhere and animals/fish getting caught in them. Not worth it for me if I'm going to kill these poor creatures for some nice pics.  In the pics/video it looks like there is wire. 

          If anyone knows where i can find the true biodegradable and safe lanterns, please let me know! 

           

          Thanks!

              I so want to do these!
              i'm just going to tell my WC (when I actually speak to her) that we are planning to release these, hopefully She will allow it.
              I know a girl already asked our resort, but its under a change in ownership, so we shall see!

                i agree htat skylanterns are beautiful but im not allowed to have anything fire related in my venue except candles - sky lanterns, firedancers, fireworks etc

                i just read this article in an english newspaper

                  Hi ladies!


                  Thought I would let anyone who's interested know I found 100% bio-degradable, eco-friendly sky lanterns. These are completely wire-free ( no harming creatures )!

                   

                  I decided I would just pick up the phone and ask, so I talked to a few places:

                   

                  www.weddinglantern.com - These have a wire frame (BAD)

                   

                  www.wishlantern.com - This company has eco-friendly lanterns however they are out of stock until May. As I'm getting married in April, this won't work.

                   

                  www.theskylantern.com - This company sells eco-friendly lanterns, $3/piece, also available by the case for less/piece I think and will ship very quickly. For all you Canadians, shipping was comparable to all of the other places I checked, plus if you call them they will give you a direct number for a Canadian distributor who can sell by the case (out of London, ON) which means you'll likely save on shipping. I didn't need a whole case so just ordered by phone (today). Shipping was $28 and i'll have them here in three days. The person I spoke to was also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!!!

                   

                  While eco-friendly lanterns may be slightly more expensive, a few extra dollars is worth it knowing i'm not sending wire into the ocean to get stuck and torture poor, unsuspecting ocean wildlife.  Choose the eco-friendly options!! :)

                    I am glad to get some information as I like a few brides on here would never want to release something that would harm the environment or the animals. I am going to order mine off sky lanterns unless I can find somewhere local to Toronto to buy them.


                    Wedding booked for December 12, 2012 at the RIU Ocho Rio....cannot wait.....it will be the best day of our lives

                      Has everyone checked with their resort to see if they are allowed?  I would love to have Sky Lanterns!
