Sky lanterns are used a lot in various celebrations. Birthdays and sporting events are among the top events where Chinese Hanging Lanterns are used. Weddings, however, remain the single most popular event where sky lanterns are used. They are often released by the couple first and then those in the wedding party or even many of the guests. It creates a wondrous display in the night sky that is stunningly beautiful. This tradition has been around since ancient times and continues to this day. Just as weddings are a great time to launch Chinese lanterns, anniversaries are equally enjoyable. So, if you are celebrating an anniversary soon, consider incorporating flying lanterns into the celebration.

How to use flying lanterns in an anniversary celebration

A great idea for anniversaries is to create a similar ritual to a wedding celebration. The happy couple can each release a Chinese paper lantern into the sky, followed by the guests releasing theirs. Or, the couple can release one Chinese lantern to symbolize their union such as the large sky lantern available at Then, the guests can follow with the traditional sky lanterns shown at or even the heart shaped Chinese lanterns like the ones found at Any combination and any colour of sky lanterns is ideal for the celebration.

How many flying lanterns are needed?

The number of sky lanterns you will need for the celebration is really a matter of personal preference. You could, for example, allow one sky lantern to be released per guest. If you choose to do this you can opt to use one of the packages such as the wedding package found at The number of sky lanterns you will need will depend on the number of guests you will have attending the party. Or, another great idea for an anniversary is to release the number of Chinese lanterns that correspond to the number of years the couple has been married. Imagine how lovely the sky will look, alight with the glow of many sky lanterns.

Personalize the sky lanterns for added interest

Another great idea for sky lanterns at an anniversary celebration is to have each of the guests personalize a lantern before releasing it. Each person can take a sharpie marker and write a personal message to the happy couple. While gathering to release the sky lanterns, each person can read aloud their message to the couple and then release them one at a time. Or, the couple can write new vows on each of their own sky lanterns as a symbol of their renewed love and commitment to each other on their anniversary. Similarly, the couple can recite their vows or special message to one another before releasing them to float into the air.

Anniversaries are a great time to incorporate sky lanterns into the celebration. They can be personalized to add a bit of depth to the ceremony and then released. The sky lanterns make a lovely addition to any celebration and anniversary parties are no exception.
