You’re working hard, planning every detail for your wedding to make it the perfect day you will remember for the rest of your life. One thing that has to be part of planning an unforgettable event has to be wedding sparklers. Adding wedding sparklers to your event give your special day an extra festive touch that everyone in attendance will enjoy.

While wedding sparklers make any wedding more fun and memorable, there are some specific ways to use them (and also ways not to use them) that you want to take into consideration.

Definitely Do

Have A Plan

Simply purchasing wedding sparklers for your big day is not enough. You need to consider things such as when you want your guests to use the sparklers, where they will be used in the venue and whether or not the sparklers will burn long enough to achieve your desired result. Working this stuff out ahead of time will ensure that everything goes according to expectations.

Personalize Your Sparklers

Did you know you can actually personalize your wedding sparklers? Rather than just have a standard sparkler, make them your own by ordering special tags with your wedding date, social media hashtag or anything else you want your guests to see when they grab their sparkler. The tags are also great because even though the sparkler may only last a minute or two, the tag is a souvenir they can keep to remember your special day.

Announce Your Sparkler Event

Wedding receptions can at times be chaotic events. One thing you can guarantee is that everybody at your reception is going to want to participate in your sparkler event. Because of this, it’s really important that an announcement is made so that everyone knows it’s about to happen. Our suggestion would be to have the DJ or band make an announcement instructing everyone where to go so they can be part of your send-off.

Definitely Don’t

Don’t purchase too few sparklers

Nothing can dampen a festive event more than disappointing guests by not having enough sparklers to go around. When you plan your sparkler event, you need to make sure you have at least a couple of sparklers per guest. Remember, you can always find something to do with extra sparklers. You definitely don’t want to run short.

Don’t forget to alert the venue about the sparklers

While it’s unlikely, it is very important to let your venue know of your wishes to have a sparkler send off. There are some venues that won’t allow this to happen, so if that is the case, you’ll want to know ahead of time so you don’t spend money on something you can’t use.

Don’t forget to devise an easy way for everyone to light the sparklers

Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that matches are not the way to go with your sparklers. Instead, be sure to have a half dozen or so bbq lighters that you can spread around the guests to get the sparklers lit. Once a few get lit, guests can help other guests by using the sparklers to light other sparklers. The key here is you don’t want it to take forever to light the sparklers, otherwise, you risk having half of your guests sparklers burn out before you make your exit
