    Hi

     

    Did anyone else want to light off wish lanterns? I called my resort Iberostar and they said that the police in DR do not allow this!! Did anyone else hear this? I was really disappointed since this was something I really wanted to do!

      Hello Kelly72714,

       

      This has also become the case in the Riviera Maya,most locations do no permit the wish off lanterns!  it is too risky, as much as is it would be a beautiful detail in your wedding.  maybe you can add fire show or fireworks.

          As much as like wish lanterns they are fire hazard and since there is lots of vegetation all around and roofs made from dry palm leaves everywhere I think it's best to find the alternatives (we actually had a near accident with lanterns at one of the weddings, when the lantern fell into the dry jungle and almost started a fire, good thing it was really close to where the couple released it so one of the staff members jumped into the jungle and put it out)

           

          Helium balloon release is an alternative as well as helium balloons with LED lights (I saw some online)

           

          Sparklers also look great at night!

          A girlfriend of mine had those at her wedding (in the US), and one of them caught on fire.

          They are beautiful but I guess it can be risky.

          Wow! Didn't know they posed such risks. Sparklers are very pretty & much safer.

          Sparklers are allowed at the resort. They sell them- Carolina. I don't know about Canada but they cost more than if I bought them here in the states.

          Customs won't allow you to bring them into the country because they are considered explosives. So you have to buy them from the resort.

          I'm doing them at my beach bash.
