    I think it would be cool to tie the lanterns to each other and have the speech givers light one when they give their speech and the next person light the next one and so on and so forth until you have a string of about 5 or 6 tied together and then release it at the end of the speeches while the couple dances together. It would be a great photo opportunity also.

    Sky lanterns are a great way to send your love off with a glow! My great idea is to use these as symbols of your love past, present and future, sending one off for each.

    Another great tip is to use them as reminders of the loved ones who can’t be there to join you. Sending one up in remembrance of their presence lighting a light in your lives, now and in the future.

    I have just ordered the sky lanterns for our BIG day! Of course, everyone has seen theses lanterns in movies and they seem so “fairytale.” They were one MUST that I requested. One of the many reasons why they were a “have to” kind of thing was because my grandfather passed away October 18, 2013. He was like my father and I took care of him in his last years. He was the man that taught me who I am! So it is very important to me to send these lanterns “off to heaven” so he can celebrate the biggest day of my life as well! I know he would be there, only if heaven wasn’t so far away…

    I don’t have a long story to share because it hasn’t been written…My Mother-in-Law was diagnosed with breast cancer awhile back and is undergoing chemo thru the holidays. I was planning to send off some sky lanterns at her home with my family on the New Year. I’m hoping the smiles, well wishes and prayers will get a little closer to God by using lanterns. It’s silly I know, but I think she would like it. We’ve cancelled our usual celebrations to bring the party to her. Everyone is doing or bringing something (cooking/cleaning), so I was hoping my contribution could be something more unique.

    My son passed away 12 hours after his birth… This year, on his birthday, we are going to release these into the sky as a way to remember him and celebrate the light that he has been in our lives even though he is not with us.

    I want the Sky Lanterns to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Bailey passed away from Leukemia in 2005 at the age of 7 and on August 12, 2014 we would have been celebrating her 16th birthday. I want my family and friends to help celebrate her life on that day by releasing 16 purple lanterns (purple was her favorite color!!) at the cemetary. She is the first thing I think of when I wake up each morning and the last thought before I fall asleep. We all love and miss her so very much.

    I want the Sky Lanterns for my daughters graduation from CSU Fort Collins, Colorado! It will be a night graduation and what a better way to start a new chapter in her life with the family and my daughter releasing these beautiful lights into the wintery night sky!
