I went to a wedding last year where the bridal party lifted off Chinese Sky Lanterns (like below)
It was gorgeous! Mr. Plantation and I immediately decided we were doing it. We even told the bride and the groom that we’re stealing this. I’ve even bought the Sky Lanterns.
It dawned on me yesterday that I have not checked that my venue is ok with this. I have no idea how I could have been so idiotic. My venue has been SO flexible about everything that it really didn’t even cross my mind. Well I checked with them and unfortunately they do not allow it 🙁
Any ideas of something else neat I could do? I was so excited about these lanterns!

are you having a rehearsal dinner some where else? maybe you can set them off as a way to start the wedding festivities? or if you have an engagement party..they would be pretty awesome then too

maybe a dove release? FI’s brother did one before his reception last year and it was beautiful.

@shalynnmarie: The rehearsal dinner is at the same venue. We are staying there the whole weekend 🙁 And we’ve already had our engagement party. But thanks for the ideas!!
@banana825: That’s a neat idea! i bet that was beautiful! I’ll have to look in to the logistics of that…Of course our dogs will be in the wedding, so they may want to chase it…ha!

I also want to do them! How many did you buy and what color? Would you be interested in selling them to me?

@Mashiara: I bought 50 and in white. I would be interested in selling them. For the 50 I would charge $125. On wishlantern.com, the 50 pack is 150. Let me know if you are interested 🙂
And I’m jealous you will be able to do it! It will be beautiful!!! I so wish we could do it 🙁
