Weddings are made up of many special moments.
The hope is that your wedding photographers will capture all the best moments through their lens! One of the most iconic moments of any wedding reception is the couple's exit from the event as they leave as newlyweds. Who doesn't love a photo of a couple giddily walking amongst their loved ones as partners in life?
Many couples choose to get creative with their wedding exits to make that moment extra special. From tossing rice to blowing bubbles, to being surrounded by glittering wedding sparklers– there are many options to make the moment memorable.
I think anyone would agree that a sparkler exit makes for a magical ending to your wedding celebration. But it makes for even more magical photos! Just take a look at these amazing sparkler exits:
So, what do you need to know about using sparklers for your wedding exit?
The most important thing is:
Make sure sparklers are allowed at your wedding venue.
Many venues have legal restrictions on fireworks or other non-biodegradable forms of items that may be tossed on their property. Double check to make sure you are within the terms of your contract before purchasing sparklers!
TIPS FOR BUYING WEDDING SPARKLERS
1. Make sure they're made of metal.
Wood will burn and cause smoke and ashes.
2. Plan on multiple sparklers per person.
Depending on the size of your wedding, it may take a few minutes to light all of the sparklers. Give them extra just in case.
3. Use a lighter to light your sparklers.
Have guests share lighters or have them bring their own. Sometimes matches just won't do the job since they have such a short lifespan.

HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR WEDDING SPARKLERS

I love how simple it is to display sparklers, adding an extra sweet detail to your decor. Just grab a glass vase and tie a ribbon around it. Make a simple little sign to tape to the front. We love this one that says “Send us off in style. Sparks Fly at 10 PM” – so cute, right?
