You ceremony was beautiful and your reception was perfect- now it's time to make a memorable exit! Wedding sparklers are a fun way to include your guests in your sendoff, and give your photographer the opportunity to capture some stunning photos. Keep the occasion safe and fun with our wedding sparkler safety tips.
1. Check with your venue. Make sure the location allows wedding sparkler sendoffs! They may even have a suggested area that will allow adequate space and environment for that type of exit.
2. Before using sparklers, scout the space. You will want to check out the sendoff area so you know the ideal place to have your guests stand when the sparklers are lit. It's best to have the group standing on a hard surface such as cement or gravel and not on a grassy lawn. It's also a good idea to make sure there's enough room for people to spread out a bit when the wedding sparklers are lit to avoid accidents.
3. Provide the necessary supplies. Remember to provide a place for your guests to discard the sparklers after they've been burnt. A bucket filled with water or sand placed near the sendoff area works perfectly!
4. Put someone in charge. It's easy for everyone to get swept up in the excitement of the moment- and that's part of the magic of a wedding sparkler sendoff! However, it's always a good idea to put someone in charge of making sure the guests gather in the right area, helping to get the sparklers lit, and making sure the burnt sparklers are discarded in the appropriate receptacle.
Follow these tips and your wedding sparkler sendoff will be the perfect finish to your perfect day!
