What Does an 80-Person Wedding Sendoff Look Like?
If weddings with 200 guests can organize a tunnel, so can your 80-person wedding! It just takes a bit of teamwork to get everyone in the right place at the right time, ready to strike a match and strike a pose. Here are a few tips for organizing your sendoff:
- Spread the buzz early. Place the sparklers in a display bucket at the door with a sign indicating the sendoff time. For instance, your sign might say, “Let love sparkle” or “Let sparks fly,” along with “Light the way for the newlyweds at 10 pm.”
- Enlist 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 40 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 sparkler with theirs.
- Get your photographer ready. Have all guests hold their sparklers high in the air as the newlyweds walk down a magical aisle of golden light. The four-minute burn time should allow several walk-throughs to capture the perfect moment for posterity.
Why Are 36-Inch Sparklers Best for an 80-Person Wedding?
While we sell 10-inch and 20-inch sparklers as well, the 36-inch wedding sparklers with a four-minute burn time are ideal for sendoffs where you need to coordinate everyone to light up at the same time. The smaller size sparklers can work for quick toasts or a few photos where you only need one to two minutes of burn time. The wedding sparklers we sell are smokeless and ashless to produce the clearest photos.
