    i am interested in hearing an answer.
    the WIND could be a huge factor.

    i was thinking that you may want to post this question in the wedding category too.
    maybe one of the wedding specialists has an answer.

    i did GOOGLE it, came up with a wedding message board and the person said aruba did not allow it.
    but, it was a message board and reliability unknown.

    i do suspect a wedding planner will know the answer.

    There is nothing about them on the TSA website.

    If they have fuel they would not be permitted on board. I am thinking maybe if they are wax, but again, goes back to Andrea's question about the wind...

    You really need to ask your wedding planner for clarification.

    the one I've bought doesn't have any wax or fuel, they have like a cotton cushion on that you pour a little alcohol and it starts to burn slowly, so plane should not be an issue...

    Wow, I had that in mind too!
    So good to see this is possible.

    I wondered because I know fireworks is a lot harder to arrange, from what I heard.


    Jason, I've send you a message on Facebook. Did you see that?
