Wedding sparkler exits have been one of the most popular wedding trends for years. It’s an exciting end to a fantastic evening. Sparklers make for beautiful and everlasting photos and leave people with a fun memory at the end of your night. The truth is though, wedding sparklers can be used for many other things than send-offs. With that in mind, we want to share with you 5 other ways you can use wedding sparklers to make your special night shine bright.
Consider A Sparkler Girl
Are you a little non-traditional and want to mix things up? Instead of having the traditional flower girl at your wedding ceremony, shake it up with a sparkler girl? Letting her walk down the aisle holding a single lit sparkler will create a moment in your wedding that those attending have likely never seen before. Even better, unlike dropping flowers everywhere as she walks down the aisle (which requires clean up and sometimes extra fees from the venue), the clean up on a single sparkler is zero. Your sparkler girl will be beaming as she walks down the aisle, making your wedding not only unique but ensuring it will be something that your guests talk about for years.
Sparklers During Your "I Do" Kiss
Sticking with the theme of creating amazing, unique sparkler photo experiences that you will cherish for years to come, let’s talk about the “I Do” kiss. Pass out sparklers to your bridal party that they can light right before your big moment. If they circle around behind you with sparklers it will create a magical moment that your photographer and attendees will be able to photograph and turn into a unique, magical memory.
TIP: This one can be a little tricky to pull off correctly, so it would be best to purchase enough extra sparklers that you can practice it once or twice on your wedding rehearsal night.
Add a Sparkler to Your Unity Candle Lighting
Again, if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and unique, one fantastic thing to consider is changing up the lighting of the unity candle. Unity candles are a tradition that has been around forever. Instead of using two candles to light the unity candle, make it more exciting for your wedding guests by using sparklers to light the candle? It will surely be something that people remember for years to come.
Let Sparks Fly During The Bridal Party Entrance
These days it’s become a trend for the bridal party entrance to be unique, silly and entertaining to kick off a fantastic wedding evening. Adding sparklers to your bridal party’s reception entrance is sure to light up the festivities and will set the tone for the rest of a magnificent night.
Cutting the Cake With Sparklers
So, when was the last time you recall watching the cake cutting at a reception? The truth is you probably haven’t or can’t remember. Honestly, it’s probably because the reception is in full swing, and the cake cutting isn’t that exciting. But, if you have your wedding cake wheeled out with cake sparklers attached to it, people are going to stop what they are doing and give you their full attention as you and your new spouse cut your cake in front of everyone. Or, if cutting the cake is a huge part of your wedding for you, you can have all your guest’s light sparklers and surround you with beautiful sparkling sparks, that way everyone is involved during that special moment.
