Speaking of customs (see article “something blue”) it is also interesting to talk about what is “en vogue” for weddings in Germany if it comes to games or other happenings during the party day/night.
The latest fashion in my opinion is bringing the skylights from the lonely beaches of Thailand to the cities and venues of Germany for entertaining the bridal couple and guests. Truly it always looks impressive, when these lanterns rise and rise into the dark skies, especially when the guests manage to let them go all at once.
But the danger of it shouldn’t be underestimated as skylights are flying firebombs and could cause serious danger and destruction! If you read the detailed manual carefully you will find out that it is mandatory to inform the air traffic control and other authorities in advance and there are a lot of restrictions and advises…
So please bear in mind: it is a nice idea to bring these lantern to the party, the bridal couple will be very happy, but make sure that the venue is in the right environment that nobody gets harmed.
