Those that are familiar with Troy Entertainment Wedding & Event DJ Productions know that at the start of each year we look for new and exciting ideas. This year is no exception. Brides and grooms looking to add a splash of fun and excitement to their wedding reception now have a new trendy option to include in their entertainment package with our “Wedding Lantern Release”.
If you've never heard of these, here is a brief explanation:
The lanterns are airborne paper lanterns traditionally found in some Asian cultures. They are made from rice paper on a bamboo frame, and contain a small fuel cake composed of a waxy flammable material. When lit, the flame from the burning fuel cake heats the air inside the lantern, thus lowering its density causing the lantern to rise into the air. The lantern is only airborne for as long as the flame stays alight, after which the lantern will float back to the ground. They are very eco-friendly and they create a very dramatic effect for all of the your guests to see.
Our Lanterns can be used during the day or night and although colored lanterns can be used for a daytime display they still do not match the dramatic effect of an evening release.
Another great idea is to have your wedding guests write their own good luck messages on the lanterns before releasing them. It is said that by writing a wish on a lantern before its release, ones bad luck; ill feeling and misfortunes are given to the heavens. As the wedding wish lantern rises it takes away your trouble and sends fortune & prosperity.
Feel free to give us a call to explore this and other add-on options to your event with Troy Entertainment Wedding & Event Productions.
