Show your love with a lantern display. Sky lanterns are often used in celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries or birthdays. Valentine’s Day is also a good occasion for Sky Lanterns. In Asian culture it is releasing sky lanterns symbolizes good luck. It is a sign that all your problems are lifted and floating away. During the Loi Kratong lantern festival in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, there is a get together where couples converge on the banks of the river and float flowers that were arranged by hand and then they release ‘Khom Loy’ jointly.


Weddings offer two opportunities for Sky Lanterns. Firstly, the newlyweds can send off a pair of lanterns together. In Asia it is considered good luck to release sky lanterns as many people, especially Buddhists, believe them to be symbolic of problems and worries floating away. In Thailand lanterns are offered to temples and monks in the belief that in return they will achieve enlightenment. The flame used in the sky lantern symbolizes wisdom. The light emitted from the lantern is said to light the path that will be correct to keep them on track in life. One does not need to be Buddhist to admire the deep serenity of the lantern floating gracefully through the air.

The glow of the bride and groom is enhanced by this dazzling spectacle. After the newlyweds have released a pair of lanterns it’s time for the guests to participate. One at a time they release their lanterns and the sky is aglow with warm illumination. Traditionally, sky lanterns are set off to accent a prayer in the idea that as the lantern elevated it floated closer to the heavens, making it easier for the gods to hear.

People often write prayers or wishes on a lantern before sending it off. A wedding is a time of new bonds, when the couple is looking toward the future. Sky Lanterns are a time honoured tradition of well wishing making them ideal for a wedding both for their aesthetic value and symbolic value. Night Sky Lanterns offers a Wedding Package at that comes in traditional white. On the page there’s a video of a lantern launch at a wedding reception.


Anniversaries are another opportunity for launching Sky Lanterns. Just as weddings are a ritual of bonding, anniversaries are a celebration of those bonds. An anniversary celebrated outdoors culminating with the soft glow lanterns in the night sky allows a couple to pause and reflect on their time spent together with an eye to the future.

Valentine’s Day

Among all the occasions when you can show your love with a sky lantern display Valentine’s Day by far offers the most opportunities. Of course couples can launch them together just as with a wedding. But for the truly adventurous, those who relish in surprising a lover with a spectacular display, a timed launch by a hidden group of friends will no doubt leave a lasting impression. The gentle ascent of the softly glowing lanterns into the night sky is a stunning backdrop when giving a Valentine’s gift at the end of a romantic dinner. The effect is greatly enhanced when using heart shaped sky lanterns such as those offered by Night Sky Lanterns at
