Sky lanterns have been used in celebrations in Asian countries for centuries, usually to help bring prosperity by writing wishes and releasing them into the sky.
In recent times, sky lanterns have become a common sight at celebrations such as weddings and New Year’s Eve, providing an exciting way of finishing reception nights and allowing guests to send wishes and messages of goodwill to the bride and groom skywards.
Fireworks are usually let off as part of specific ceremonies, including bonfire night and New Year’s Eve. But while they can be pretty to look at, did you know that …
On the other hand, sky lanterns are safer, silent, pretty, inexpensive and can be incorporated into almost any celebration. So if you are looking for a fun and eye-catching way of adding to your festivities– whether a wedding reception or a birthday party – then why not consider launching some majestic sky lanterns as an alternative to fireworks?
Here are a few reasons to consider opting for lanterns over fireworks:
But with some recent bad press about the safety of lanterns, some people have been questioning if they are indeed safe for use. So should you be worried about potentially causing a scene by letting off some sky lanterns?
No, you do not need to be concerned provided you follow common sense. For example, only use good quality lanterns because these retain the heat in the lantern better and so will fly higher and for longer for added safety.
Secondly, only launch lanterns from a safe location, preferably with lots of open space and away from built-up areas, to avoid the lanterns getting caught in obstacles.
Finally, if you live close to an airfield or close to the coast and are looking to release a lot of lanterns, then it’s recommended to let the relevant authorities (such as the Civil Aviation Authority or the local Coastguard) know that you plan to release some sky lanterns.
So, sky lanterns are certainly worth considering as an alternative to fireworks for your special occasion. Whether you’re looking to release one or a few dozen, your guests will certainly be in awe of the stunning sight of lanterns floating away with their wishes and aspirations.
Have fun. Be safe.
