Planning the wedding of your dreams is one of the most
exciting times in your life. You’ve imagined the perfect wedding since you were
a child, and the time has finally come. Where do you begin with planning the
wedding of your dreams?
Wedding trends are constantly changing, and new
ones are forming. Wedding
sparklers are a wedding must-have that
can be used in photos, receptions and more.
With a variety of different sizes, our sparklers have different
burn times. If you have a smaller, more intimate wedding with about 100 guests
or less, our 10-inch sparklers would
be ideal. They have a burn time of about 45 seconds each and with our 10-inch
packages you receive 2 sparklers per guest.
If you have a median to large wedding with about 150 guests
or less, our 20-inch sparklers will do the trick. Each sparkler burns for about
2 minutes giving the bride and groom time to walk through and a few pictures.
You can also use our 20-inch sparklers for
writing words in the air. See our Writing with Sparklers blog for details:
Last but definitely not least if you are having a HUGE
wedding of 150 guests or more our 36-inch sparklers are
perfect for the job. Each long sparkler will burn for 4 minutes and they give
the most beautiful arch to your exit.
Location and Date
The first step to planning the wedding of your dreams is determining
a location and date. This is arguably the hardest
part of the planning process. (You’ll need to determine a budget before
searching for venues. This often can be the costliest expense)
Do you want a location your friends and family can realistically
attend? Or would you prefer a destination wedding in paradise? Both options
offer dream weddings with different audiences and expectations. Make a draft
guest list and see how you can accommodate your potential guests. Each option
has pros and cons. Just remember, this is your day!
The next step is choosing a theme. This is the fun part! If you’re a bride to be, you’ve
looked at Pinterest, bridal magazines and other outlets for ideas and
inspiration. Plan your wedding theme based off a long-term mentality. Pick a
style and theme that will be great to look back at 20 years from now. Do you
like classic/traditional, rustic, retro, romantic, or modern? There are so many
to choose from! If you’ve been dreaming of that perfect wedding your whole life,
plan your theme to make your dreams a reality.
Now that you’ve determined a theme, it’s time to pay
attention to the details. Decorations
are an important part of the planning process. Pinterest offers DIY ideas that
will make your wedding spectacular and affordable! You can choose fun
decorations such as polaroid camera stations, mason jar centerpieces, wedding
sparklers for entertainment, chalkboard station signs and more.
Food and Drinks
Don’t forget the food
and drinks! There are SO many options to choose from when it comes to
catering your wedding. Keep in mind who you invite and their preferences. Will
you offer steak, chicken, fish or veggie options? Maybe all the above? Offer a
variety to accommodate the different people attending your wedding. Make sure to
save room for the best part--the cake!
Finally, the dress. What
bride hasn’t dreamt of the perfect long, flowing, white dress to wear down the
aisle? The best part? All eyes are on you. Searching for the perfect dress can
be daunting. Narrowing down your preferences will make the search less
stressful. Knowing your theme ahead of time will also make choosing a dress
easier as well. For example, if you chose a rustic theme, you may prefer a lace
dress to accompany your overall theme. Pick a dress that makes you feel like
you’re in a fairytale!
Now you’re ready to start planning the wedding of your dreams with these tips for brides!
