I would say your best bet is like a party supply store.

My family has gotten sparklers for 4th of July every year since I was a child. We’ve bought all types of them. The quality honestly doesn’t change much.

Sparklers have to burn because you light them with fire and the sparks come from that fire hitting different things in the wood. They all will break off after they have been burned because that area has turned to ash. That has nothing to do with quality. think of them like a cigar or cigarette, no matter if it’s poor quality or the best high end quality, they all burn the same and they all break off into ashes.

however, the one’s we got in Mexico had the least amount of duds ( sparklers that wouldn’t light at all).

@nursein10: The sparklers you saw at the wedding that were breaking apart were most likely bamboo sparklers called morning glories.  So just be aware to not buy those.  You want metal or wire sparklers, probably 36 inch or 20 inch depending on how long you want them to last.


Hope that helps!

I hate to say it but anything labeled wedding has a huge mark-up.  I would say your best bet is a roadside fireworks store.  Like here in Chicago fireworks are illegal so immediatly upon crossing into Indiana on the highway there are TONS of firework store there.  We have roadtripped everywhere and come across firework stores in most states.
