Every bride wants her wedding to go off without a hitch, from planning your grand entrance to your flawless sparkling exit. Make your sparkling exit something your guests will talk about for months t come! Your grand exit is that last part of the biggest days of your life, so make it special! We know wedding planning can be stressful, and something are forgotten, or let’s be honest, not even thought of! So here are a few tips to help your grand sparling exit go off without a hitch!
First Things First!
You always want to check with your wedding venue! The number one mistake we come across is that some venues don’t allow sparkler send-offs due to insurance, safety, or burn bans. Some venues also have requirements or stipulations as to the type of sparker you can use and the length of sparkers permitted due to safety concerns.
We have 3 sparker sizes to chose from to meet your possible venue rules. If your venue allows sparklers and does not have size stipulations we offer 10 inch, 20 inch, and 36 inch sparklers. Not sure which size you need? Our general guidelines for sparkler size is for weddings of 150 guests or less our 20 inch sparklers will be perfect for you. Now if you are getting close to that 150 mark or have more than 150 guests we recommend our 36 inch sparkers. These guidelines help ensure all your guests’ sparklers will still be lit during your sparkling exit!
Let Everyone Know About the Sparklers Exit
Now that you have decided to use sparklers for your grand exit, make sure you have a sign or some type of way to announce what time that your sparkler sendoff you will be. We love the idea of sparking tables or sendoff tables that allow you to inform guests of your exit time, you can display your sparklers and can leave lighting instructions for your guests.
Last but not least…
Most brides and grooms overlook the lighting process when using sparklers for weddings. Here are a few pointers on how to get all your sparklers lit and sparkling. First, all of your guest should have their sparklers and are positioned for your exit BEFORE lighting their sparklers. We recommend having a butane lighter handy and not matches. Did you know the best way to light a sparker is with another sparker? This is why we include one package of our 10 inch sparklers in your wedding sparkers packages to use for lighting.
One big mistakes we see a lot is that brides want to use matches for lighting sparklers. As cute as custom match boxes, the matches themselves do not burn long enough or raise the heat of the sparkler high enough to lite the material.
Once you have a few sparklers lit, it’s like a domino effect and one will light the next, until all the sparklers are lit. Now you are ready to walk through your flawless sparkling tunnel with your new hubby into your new future.
