Wedding Wish Lanterns are a safe and quiet alternative to fireworks that make for a unique and spectacular wedding reception that your guests are sure to remember.

Wish Lanterns are traditionally used for celebrations and festivals in Thailand as a symbol of the release of worries and problems, the bringing of good luck, and for sending wishes for the future into the sky. This symbolism, and the beautiful visual effect they create has made them one of the most sought after new wedding accessories in the USA.

The lanterns are similar to mini hot air balloons – made from biodegradable rice paper – which have a cardboard fuel cell that is lit, causing the lanterns to fill with hot air and float silently into the night sky where their glow can be seen for miles around.

Wedding Wish Lanterns will be in the air for about 12 minutes and go up over a mile in the air. They stand 108cm tall and 66cm wide at their widest point. After release, the Wedding Lantern will self-extinguish and float gently to the ground.

Our fuel cells come already attached to the Wedding Wish Lantern, unlike other manufacturers of cheaper replica products, so all you have to do is light the fuel cell and gaze as the Wedding Wish Lantern floats up to the skies. For more detailed safety and launching instructions please click here.

Wedding Wish Lanterns are fully biodegradable, non-flammable and safe and easy to use. They were first launched in the USA by Wish Lantern in April 2009.
