Bride idea: Send off with wish lanterns

The best send off for the bride and groom



I'm seeing these Thai Wish Lanterns quite a bit on television lately (namely in "The Hangover II" and on this season's "The Bachelorette") and I'm beginning to think it's a must for any wedding this fall.

I found some Thai Wish lanterns in Charlotte when I picked up my takeout from Akahana Asian Bistro in Plaza Midwood on Friday night. Wish Lantern offers a bunch that we love.

That sure beats the sparklers, confetti, rice-throwing, bubble-blowing traditions for any wedding event, no?

What creative way(s) have you thought about or decided to do with your send-off?

I've been using these for a couple of years for all sorts of special occasions....New Year's Eve, birthdays, housewarmings, etc. Have guests write their well wishes on the lanterns with Sharpies and launch them out into the universe. They are beautiful!
