Why Are 36-Inch Sparklers Best for a 160-Person Wedding?
Wedding Sparklers Outlet also sells 10-inch and 20-inch sparklers for smaller groups, toasts, or cake cutting. Our 36-inch wedding sparklers are the best option for sendoffs, photos, and favors because they offer the longest burn time. While the 36-inch sparklers burn nearly four minutes, shorter sparklers may burn one or two minutes by comparison. No matter which wedding sparkler size you choose, you can expect the clearest possible photos thanks to the smokeless and ashless steel wire construction.
How To Plan a Sparkler Sendoff for 160 People
Creating a magical wedding sendoff with 160 guests requires a little coordination to get everyone in the right place at the right time. Here are a few helpful tips:
- Set the scene. You can arrange the sparklers in display buckets at your entrance table and reuse the buckets for proper extinguishment later. Each bucket fits 50 tagged or 100 untagged sparklers so you will need two to four for your event.
- Involve the wedding party. Have the wedding party, walk around, and gather everyone together. The safest and easiest way to light sparklers is to organize the party into two lines of 80 people facing one another. Then select 2-4 people as designated lighters. Using a butane lighter each designated lighter should light one of the free 10-inch lighting sparklers (provided with your order). Once their sparkler is burning, they can walk down the line lighting each guest’s sparkler with theirs.
- Get camera-ready. Ask your photographer to prepare as all guests hold their sparklers high in the air while you and your partner walk through an enchanting aisle of golden light. With the four-minute burn time, there will be several opportunities to capture the perfect photo for your memories.
How Many Sparklers Do You Need for 160 Guests?
Given the longer burning time, most buyers purchase just one 36-inch wedding sparkler package, which provides one sparkler per guest. However, if you want to buy extras, there are plenty of reasons to keep the spark burning. In fact, when stored correctly out of the sunlight, heat, and humidity—our fresh, high-quality sparklers can last for close to a decade.
What Else Can You Do With 160 Sparklers?
While sparkler sendoffs are undoubtedly a beautiful wedding celebration climax, you can also use them to kick off the reception, make a toast, set a magical backdrop for the first dance, or highlight the cake-cutting ceremony.
Give out sparklers as a favor that your guests can use for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, Independence Day events, and photos that are perfect for social media. The breathtaking fountain of sparks represents hope and optimism, making them a charming addition to any special occasion.
