Wedding detail - chinese sky lanterns on the cheap

I fell in love with images of couples releasing chinese sky lanterns at their wedding receptions long ago. There is something so magical about the flickering candlelight floating up and away, carrying wishes for the newly married couple. The pictures are always amazing, and it is a special, unique detail. I also think it is a pretty fun "activity" to do at the reception!

Imagine my surprise when I got an email from Groupon today that featured chinese lanterns for half off as our local deal! Sweet! I snatched that right up and plan to order 20 lanterns. I figure multiple guests can write on each lantern. I'm SO pumped about this! I'll probably try to fit this in at the end of the night, before Ben and I head out.

Heads up! Be sure to check with your venue to see if they allow the use of these lantern. Luckily, ours does! These claim to be 100% biodegradable...I'm hoping this is true. I'd feel bad if not. :)

I doubt there is anyone left on the face of the planet who hasn't yet signed up for Groupon, but if by some chance you haven't, you can do so HERE!

I'm running it by my venue right now to see if they'll allow it (hopefully they do!)

Is there a potential danger with these though? I'm afraid of my guests burning themselves.
