What about releasing lanterns?

Don’t fret, sparklers are far from unique anyways (way more popular than bubbles and rice nowadays).  Everyone does them.

I love the lantern idea above.  I also love streamers on sticks, which I have seen a couple of times around the board.

@Cmcrca110713: We created a lit pathway with solar lights and jars covered with colorful tissue paper in our wedding colors.

I don’t understand the suggestion of release lanterns during a burn ban. Don’t they require being lit outside and um, fire?! I understand they’re propelled upwards once released but it sounds altogether too risky for a burn ban.

if sparklers are not allowed the laterns are definite no bc they really ate so dangerous.

I don’t have any ideas but I wouldn’t be disappointed about sparklers – everyone does them now and honestly, from what I’ve seen, they’re rarely executed the way you envision in your head.

You definitely will not be able to use lanterns if there is a burn ban. Those are even more dangerous than sparklers. I went to a wedding where the guests threw flower petals. I thought it was kind of neat!

What about everyone holding LED candles?

Don’t fret! Sparklers are a HOT MESS! A wedding I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in did them, NOTHING but smoke and hot sparks everywhere!!! What about fresh flower pedals in cute DIY paper cones?

We are releasing butterflies instead of doing the rice or bubbles.
