In the past, newlywed couples left their wedding in a shower of rice being thrown at them. Later on, couples began to substitute rice with confetti, bubbles, or rose petals. Nowadays couples require a lot more pizzazz. Using wedding sparklers for your exit is the hot new trend for weddings. It’s easy to see why.
Your wedding album will be something you will treasure for years to come. Think of how amazing that wedding album will look when it ends with your guests holding sparklers up high as you leave the end of a perfect day.
The first and most important thing you need to do is check with your venue to make sure it is okay to plan a sparkler sendoff. Once you know the answer to that is in the affirmative, you can proceed with your plan. Purchasing wedding sparklers have never been easier and you should plan to purchase one to two per guest.
However, you can safely assume 25% of your guests will leave before your scheduled sendoff. That way you’re only buying about for about 75% of the guests who will stay. Be sure to put a sign up telling people that you need them for the sparkling end to your wedding day!
What kind of sparkler should you get? 36-inch wedding sparklers will give you over 3 ½ minutes of light so that you have plenty of time getting a lot of photographs taken. Just make sure that your guests form two lines, far enough apart from each other that you don’t get singed! The best place to get thirty-six-inch sparklers is from Wedding Day Sparklers, who have several package sizes depending upon the needs of your guest list.
Try to budget anywhere from $39.99 for a half box (48 sparklers) to $209.99 for a full case (288 sparklers) when it comes time to buy the smokeless, steel wire wedding sparklers. Think of the amazing photos you will end up getting from your photographer. It will truly make your wedding day unforgettable!
