I am getting married the day after the 4th of July, so I would love to incorporate sparklers somehow into my wedding. I have seen people do sparkler exits and I think they make for awesome pictures! That said…. we are having an after party that is on the premises of the venue. Our venue has a bar open to the public that we plan to go down to after our wedding. So… how can I do a sparkler exit when I want people to join us at the after party…and I’m not even leaving?

Hm. Might be a little strange to call it an exit if you aren’t leaving. However, it would make a really good photo op.. maybe that’s what you call it? Maybe leave little cards on the table that say “join us for sparklers and celebration at [whatever time]!

weatherbug: Do you need to walk out of the venue to get to the bar? If so, that would be a good time to do it. If not, I like PP’s idea of calling it a celebration. Just make it clear that everyone is invited to the afterparty so they don’t leave!

I think you still can! Just don’t call it an exit and treat it as a photo op.

I don’t think it’s a good idea.

I had a friend stage it right in the middle of the reception. It wasn’t even close to the end. She just called out a few select guests by rounding them up herself (and getting the bridesmaids to help). It was definitely awkward and some people were left out of it, but oh well…she got the pictures she wanted so I think it served its purpose.
