Add Wedding Celebration Supplies to Make Your Evening Even More Spectacular
We've worked with all the best wedding venues in Houston, delivering sparklers for weddings from our nearby warehouse in Magnolia, TX. If you're traveling, we can ship your wedding celebration supplies directly to our contacts at these venues, as sparklers cannot be taken on any commercial aircraft in the U.S., whether in a carry-on or checked luggage.
Sparklers create a stunning firefly-like backdrop for photos, especially when arranged to form a send-off tunnel of light at the end of the night. Choose from 10-inch wedding sparklers for quick toasts, 20-inch wedding sparklers for small displays, or 36-inch wedding sparklers for large displays and pair them with wedding sparkler tags to use as favors.
In addition to our ever-popular wedding sparklers, our delightful and affordable confetti cannons for weddings are a big hit during the ceremony or when introducing the newlyweds to the reception.
Whatever you choose, a few thoughtful accessories translate into everlasting memories. With bulk packages, fast shipping, and responsive customer service, I Love Sparklers is a proud local company, happy to bring your vision of "happily ever after" to fruition.What wedding venues do YOU love in Houston, TX?
