Sky lanterns are an age old tradition that started out in old Asia that people have been using for years as a way of enhancing their luck and bringing good fortune into their lives. In addition, sky lanterns have been used for ages as a way to whisk your troubles away and into the air. It was always said that the higher and further your sky lantern flew away, the more of your troubles it would take with it, and the longer it stayed in the air before finally fluttering to the ground.
Here are some helpful tips on how you can use sky lanterns to create a truly unforgettable event. Whether you are using your sky lanterns at a barbecue, a wedding, a wedding reception, or any other type of event you can have a real and truly unforgettable event.
- Personalize your sky lanterns to meet the individual needs or personalities of the people in your wedding party. While it was not always possible in the past, you can now purchase sky lanterns that you can purchase and personalize or have personalized with a name, more than one name, a symbol, or even a date.
- Sky lanterns are a great way to end an otherwise perfect night. Not only are they a great deal more interesting than fireworks shows, they are also a great deal more spectacular and will warrant a much better review of your event with your friends and family and other guests.
- Sky lanterns are known to bring luck. If you want to raise money for a certain charity or other endeavor, sell sky lanterns at your function and have an event that includes setting them off at the end of the night. Not only will you teach your guests a little something new, but you can raise a nice amount of money and build a great morale in the end.
- Use sky lanterns as a way to commemorate your event. Even if you choose not to send them off at the end of the night as so many other people do at events, feel free to send your guests home with a lovely parting gift; a sky lantern commemorating the wonderful event of your wedding day.
Sky lanterns are not something that most of your wedding guests will have ever heard of, so be sure to give your guests a tidbit of history surrounding the sky lanterns and hopefully it will be something that they can pass along to other people. There really is nothing quite like seeing them lift off into the air and then flutter back down after their gas has been exhausted; you should check it out for yourself if you have not already and there will be no arguing that they are the perfect way to make an unforgettable event
