Fire Sky Lanterns

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides,

 

I was wondering if anyone has released those lanterns into the sky at their wedding and could tell me where you got the lanterns and all that you need for them. Did you just do a few or have one for all guests?

 

Thanks :)

Hi there,

 

I am planning on having these lanterns at my wedding too. I will have 80 to 90 people attending so was planning on each table releasing one or 2 lanterns. They are supposed to be wishing lanterns so I was thinking of leaving Sharpies on each table and asking the guests to each write a wedding wish on their lantern before sending it off. 

 

I'm just not sure if I can get the lanterns in Mexico or if I need to bring them from home. If I bring them from home, what fuels them and can that be brought onto a plane? I've read that some use candles which would be ok, but I think some use an actual fuel type gas, which might not be allowed on the plane. 

 

Am looking forward to hearing if they can be easily purchased in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Hey I have been doing a little research and it seems they use these things called fuel cells, which look to be just little squares of something. I think (from what I have seen) that those cells just get directly lit and then you release them. My decorator told me brides bring them from the US and Canada all the time. Hope that helps :) I still am not sure where to purchase them from though because some of the less expensive ones I've seen online have either gotten iffy reviews on them or don't have reviews at all. I just don't want them to be cheap and not do what they're supposed to :/
