Ours doesn’t allow sparklers either.  So we’ll either be doing bubbles, petals or glow sticks.  It stinks cause I really love the sparkler exit pictures!

Ours didn’t either and we were so bummed! We opted out of a grand exit. It turned out that since the reception was over at 11pm, most people were leaving by 10pm with only us hardcore drinkers/dancers/socializers being left anyways.

We did glowsticks.  Honestly, the pictures aren’t as amazing as sparkler pictures.  Here is one of ours.  Plus, we were carrying out stuff so it didn’t look as magnificent.

I really want to do the sparkler exit too! Our contract doesn’t say anything specific to the use of sparklers. I really really hope they will allow it.

if you have time for some serious DIY for your guest.. Or just have them for your bridal party like in the pic? That is a serious bummer about sparklers, but ribbons would look awesome in photos!

Aw that’s a huge bummer! Why won’t they allow it? I guess you’re doing a night departure… hmmmm…

We used eco-fetti! It was fun, but I had it all down my dress! I think this photo is hysterical too. 🙂

I think the problem with confetti is that it’s sort of hard to see when it is dark out if there isn’t a lot of light around.

The airplanes would TERRIFY me. I don’t even want to think about getting poked in the eye with one. Bloodshot eyes= not sexy.

I agree!  The airplanes are sort of scary!

Is this for when you walk off from the ceremony or after the reception ends? I am confused Undecided
