Wedding sparklers have become one of the most popular ways of sending off the wedding couple. They get the grand send off under an umbrella of sparklers, which has replaced some of the other traditional send offs. They can be painted to match the wedding colors, and add a personalized book of matches and this makes a great wedding favor.
Some tips for choosing wedding sparklers:
- Avoid cheap bamboo sparklers, these drop ash when lit and can ruin clothing (like an all important wedding dress) and they also tend to be much smokier than higher quality wire sparklers
- Plan out how you will light the sparklers, and then choose a length/burn time accordingly. If you plan to give everyone their own matchbook to light the sparklers you can get away with a shorter sparkler. If you plan to have groomsmen go around and light sparklers for everyone, get a longer burning sparkler.
- Consider who you want to hand out sparklers to and have plenty on hand for everyone (keep in mind young children should not handle their own sparklers).
