Floating Lanterns for Your Wedding

Floating Lanterns For Your Wedding, Bride Ideas

These floating lanterns are made of rice paper. A candle inside heats the air and the lantern floats upwards. Ask guests to make a wish as you release the lanterns: happy thoughts for the bride and groom, of course.

We love this beautiful and romantic gesture, but like fireworks, there are fire safety hazards to consider. You need to get local permission before you can use them. And to be on the even safer side, we recommend releasing the lanterns near a body of water. The lanterns look especially gorgeous floating over water. Perfect for a beach or lakeside wedding.

You can purchase a variety of these lanterns at skywishlanterns.com.

    Althought the floating lanterns and and releasing lanterns at beach weddings seems like a good idea, many locations do not allow this. The tides and waves make it difficult to impossible for this to work at most beach location. And the air lanterns are may cause fires when landing on homes / trees / hotels.
