I love them, but have you cleared them with your venue?  I had to go through all kinds of things, including a higher insurance policy.  I opted against them.

 I saw somebody do this and the lanterns dont stay lit very long plus they have to come down so you kind of end up littering

I like the idea, just not really practical 🙁 sorry

I loooove this idea. SO pretty! Where did you get your large sky lanterns from?

I’ve done lanterns before (a giant heart and some square ones) and the colder it is the faster/higher they travel. Around 60F would be perfect w/o them just being sucked into the sky. It’s so much fun, just look into the regulations before you do it.

The place I got them from said that because they are made out of tissue paper they should dissolve within 2 months.

We estimated 1 each for our wedding so hv tons leftover. Let me know if anyone is interested. $2 each including priority shipping.

for a small fee, I can also buy n tie strings on the frame so you can gently guide them back to you when the fuel pack finishes.
