I think every bride and groom hope for a memorable departure from their reception. Most couples opt for a traditional farewell of bubbles, rose petals or even sparklers but this past October a Glendalough Manor couple had a unique and fun way for guests to say their farewells and I just had to share this idea with you!
Lauren and Adam Matthews released lanterns right before they left the reception and not only did Stephanie Hamlet capture some beautiful photographs of the lantern release but it was also a very memorable moment for the bride and groom and all of their guests. The bride said it was “one of her favorite parts of the wedding”.
I found some eco friendly lanterns on wishlantern.com that are 100% biodegradable. They are non-flammable and easy for your guests to use. They will fly for about 12 minutes and go up about a mile high in the sky and the white lanterns are a stunning display when released by all of your guests at the same time.
An idea I absolutely love is to have your guests write a “wish” for you and your groom on the lantern itself and on the personalized tags. The tags can be kept as a keepsake from the wedding!
Hope you like this ideas as much as I did! Happy Planning!
