Where can I get some good quality sparklers without breaking the bank…we have roughly 250 people coming to the wedding but I’m sure by the end of the night we’ll only have half of that so would probably only need like 125 to be on the safe side…any websites you’d recommend getting them from? Again, I want really good quality, I was just at a wedding where the sparklers were burning and would break off every half inch that it burned…horrible quality, almost caught things on fire etc!

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).

SandAndSea…actually with sparklers there are some with better quality! A wedding we JUST went too had the poorest I’d ever seen…pieces were breaking off as they were burning and almost caught peoples dresses on fire…..a wedding I went to last summer had really great quality sparklers…they lasted a long time and it never had pieces that broke off as it was burning…yes there are definitly qualities to them, you can get real cheap ones that break and dont burn long and you can get some that dont break as they burn and last over a minute even with the two being the same size!
So just looking to see if anyone has a website they know of where I can get the better quality kind…anybody??

@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.
