So I have been working through the details of our destination wedding and our coordinator asked, “what about fireworks?” At first I thought, “what about them?” but last night in town there was an amazing fireworks show and I started to think it might not be such a bad idea afterall. Fireworks are cool…….right?
We’re getting married in Mexico on the beach at 4:00pm and the reception is on the patio that overlooks the beach. I’ve been told it will be about $500 to ad this on our package.
What do you ladies think about fireworks? I’ll admitt at first I thought it was sort of lame lol…have I lost my mind? Is it a waste of money?
Hopefully someone has done them or has been to a wedding with them and can fill me in! Thanks!

Let me tell you when we first started planning our wedding we looked into doing a DW… If we decided to go that route I would 100% be doing fireworks!!!

$500 seems pretty inexpensive for fireworks, actually. I am no expert, but my father has a firework show put on for a charity event he does every summer and they cost nearly 20,000! granted, it’s a pretty immaculate show.
so i say, if you want them, go for it!

If you have that $500 then YES YES YES you will never ever forget it and not a lot of couples get to have the option of having fireworks – I am jealous, LOL

My dad shoots fireworks for a living so I have seen about a bazillion fireworks shows. I’ll tell you that I love them and that they are always always always a crowd pleaser! We’re not having fireworks because then some of our guests would have to work to put on the show ;-).
But $500 is a super super good deal and I say go for it!

As a guest, they really aren’t that amazing. It’s not like the big 4th of July shows that cost thousands and thousands by Zambelli Fireworks.
As a bride planning a wedding I could see how they would seem awesome.

reminds me of the end of My Best Friend’s Wedding where the Rolls drives off to the coordinated fireworks fountains! I love that!

I’m having a DW and also considered fireworks, but I ruled it out because it cost a lot more than $500. I say go for it! My only advice would be NOT TO TELL ANYONE if you can help it! As a guest, I would be awed as long as they were a surprise, because they’re so unexpected at a wedding… but if I knew beforehand, it might ruin the “awe factor.” 🙂

Go for it! $500 is a steal, and it would be so much fun!
