Sky lanterns are a unique, interesting addition to any modern wedding ceremony. If you're looking for something just a little different for your special day, they could be just the thing. Adding charm and beauty to any occasion, sky lanterns are an inexpensive way to really make an impression.
Sky lanterns, also known as Kongming Lantern are airborne paper lanterns traditionally found in some Asian cultures. They are constructed from oiled rice paper on a bamboo frame, and contain a small candle or fuel cell composed of a waxy flammable material. When lit, the flame heats the air inside the lantern, thus lowering its density causing the lantern to rise into the air.
The sky lantern is only airborne for as long as the flame stays alight, after which
the lantern floats back to the ground.
