What are your thoughts on fireworks at the end of the reception? In the UK it’s toally legal so long as the venue has a licence. Have you been to a wedding where they had fireworks?
I’m sure it will be completely out of my budget – but a Bee can dream!
My own reasons for wanting fireworks – FI’s birthday is on Bonfire Night (5th November) and he LOVES fireworks! I thought it would be a nice suprise for him.
Prices I have seen range from $1000 – $2500 depending on the legnth of the display.

It’s a great idea – if it can be done in terms of timing (are you going to leave a) after dark and b) while most of your guests are still there?) and location and so on. Weddings get so bride-focused, it’s nice to try and do something special and personal for the groom.

If you can afford it then I say yes!

I went to a wedding that had fireworks – it was a surprise; none of the guests knew they were going to happen – and it was really cool. (Beatiful,too…over the lake.) If you can afford them and know someone who can be trusted to set them off safely, sounds great!

We had them because our wedding was on Canada day and the venue was doing them anyway. It was at a resort where our reception was separated from the rest of the guests but both could see the fireworks. It was incredible and made for beautiful pictures but I don’t think we would have paid for them.
