flying with the lanterns with fuel cells

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

We were looking into getting the floating lanterns for our guests, we are getting married in Punta Cana just not sure if we are able to pack these lanterns as luggage and bring them in the airplane due to having fuel cells or if we have to send them to the resort via mail. If anyone knows this could you please get back to me. Thx

most of the sky lantern websites say you can take them in checked luggage..and most of the brides seem to have done that!

 

im bemused though - when i called airlines (and even courier companies like fedex)and wanted to get a christmas cracker abroad i was told they were banned as they were technically "explosive" (and lord knows even a giant christmas cracker wuoldnt affect a plane). fedex even had their explosive expert call me to discuss it (that was a silly conversation "you cannot ship explosives abroad" "yes, i know and i dont want to, but where does a christmas cracker fit in?" "well...its a little bit explosive?" etc etc etc) so i would have assumed that sky lanterns wouldnt be allowed either...but since so many brides have obviously taken them...i wonder if they simply didnt ask, or if they got the goahead?

 

better to check anyway though

good question.  I was wondering the same.  We ordered some, and would love to use them, but taking them in our checked luggage makes me a bit nervous.  The last thing I want on the way to our wedding is to be arrested for taking fuel cells on a plane :-)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
