The bride, groom and their guests release “wish lanterns” at the end of the night, usually instead of a traditional send-off with sparklers, confetti, bubbles or what-have-you. It’s beautiful, very impactful and – perhaps surprisingly – environmentally friendly! At the end of the evening, couples (these seem to work best with two people managing them) light the wick, make a wish for the newlyweds and release the lanterns to the sky. It truly is a lovely sight to behold. The lanterns are being made with environmentally friendly materials and are completely biodegradable! Look how beautiful this is!
We find this sweet new wedding trend quite delightful.
