Disney's Tangled is a favorite amongst kids of all ages, parents, and even brides! YES has received several requests from brides-to-be looking to incorporate the ever so popular sky lanterns from the movie sensation into their wedding day. This decor element, also known as wish lanterns, are paper lanterns that contain a small candle, which once lit, heats the air in the lantern and causes it to rise. Although very beautiful when they are illuminated in the sky, we're not huge fans of the sky lanterns because of their potential environmental hazards. We love to accommodate our brides with their requests, so here are a few alternatives that we suggest that are just as effective and charming as the release of the sky lanterns.

These creative alternatives to the sky lanterns can easily be achieved while still adding a wow factor to your celebration. If you choose to release the sky lanterns, we ask that you use them responsibly and consider the safety of your guests and environment.
