Wedding Tips

Wedding, Event & Hospitality

I really enjoyed working with BuySparklers.com! I was completely impressed with their customer service and how fast my sparklers arrived. They were gorgeous at my wedding!! The sparklers made my day unforgettable with a fairy tale like ending. I highly recommend BuySparklers.com to everyone!

Here are a few things that my help you get ready for your big day.

  • Check with your venue first. Be sure to ask your venue coordinator if sparklers are allowed (and mention you’re using BuySparklers.com!). Most locations won’t mind you using them outside, but policies vary among venues, so find out in advance. If you need an alternative to sparklers, our confetti-filled Champagne Wedding Poppers are a fun, elegant way to toast the new couple!
  • Buy ONLY quality metal wire sparklers. All sparklers from BuySparklers.com are made with metal wire only. Never use bamboo or wood sparklers at your wedding! They may be less expensive, but these produce significantly more smoke and ash as they burn down the stick. They can be very messy and are not recommended for formal occasions. Sparklers are not a place to cut corners on costs; choose a reputable brand to make sure your once-in-a-lifetime moments are flawless!
  • Test your sparklers before the big day. Avoid any unpleasant surprises before the big day (especially if you didn’t order from BuySparklers.com). Be sure to try your sparklers out before the wedding so you know what to expect, paying attention to burn time and ease of lighting. We’ve worked with many brides who were disappointed by inferior products and turned to BuySparklers.com days before their wedding. We’ll work with you to get top quality sparklers to you quickly!
  • Consider the timing. If you’re planning an exit arch or another moment where everyone’s sparklers are lit at the same time, be sure to factor in the time it will take to get everyone’s sparklers lit. For a group effect such as an exit arch or photo op, 20” is the minimum recommended sparkler size. With a 2-minute burn time, that gives crowds up to approximately 150 enough time for everyone to light their sparklers. For larger crowds, the 36” sparkler lasts for 4 minutes, allowing time for everyone’s sparklers to be lit for the big moment.
  • Recruit helpers. Coach a team of helpers to hand out and light sparklers at the wedding. Give them extended-reach wand lighters (such as grill lighters) to light the first few sparklers, then have other guests dip unlit sparklers into lit sparklers. Also, coach them to hold sparklers UP and AWAY. Keep in mind that regular matches or lighters will not work – an extended wand grill lighter is a must-have for sparkler use.
  • Notify guests with the Sparkler Exit Sign. This sign lets guests know you’re planning a sparkler exit so they’re sure to stay for that magical moment. The more guests participating, the more dazzling your sparkler tunnel will be! Fill our galvanized metal buckets with sand and arrange the sparklers inside to create a beautiful display while making it easy for guests to grab a sparkler on their way to the big moment.
  • Create the moment. When doing a “tunnel” of sparklers for the bride and groom to run under for their exit, keep the crowd a little more than an arm’s length away from the couple and extended upward. It’s more for show than to make an actual tunnel. A wide path also gives the bride and groom enough room to “dash” out without bending over. This will help the photographer capture great pictures of this magical moment!
  • Consult your photographer. Let your photographer know when and where you are using sparklers. That way they’re ready to capture the moment… or to stage a few pictures just before or just after the big exit.
  • Dispose of properly. Use your team of helpers to make sure sparklers are properly disposed of. The metal wires will be hot for a few minutes after burning. Use our galvanized metal buckets or trays nearby filled with water or sand so wires can be discarded safely.
