Well, the link wouldn’t work…but could you get a block of styrofoam and cover it in fabric and then stick the ends of the sparklers into the fabric covered styrofoam and display it near the door?

We are also using sparklers for our send off. We have purchased tall inexpensive glass containers to place them in at the door of the venue where we will be exiting. Our guests will grab one and our DOC will be lighting them along with some help from our venue. Then when they are done with them they will be placed back in those glass containers where water will be at the bottom.

I would think pretty glass vases would be a great way to display them/store them until they get used.  You could also incorporate them into the centerpieces if you have large ones maybe and then on the menu or escort cards explain that these are to be pulled out later for use.

I like the idea of combining the vases and the styrofoam. =) Stick a piece of foam in a vase (so that it fills up about half the vase, probably), and decorate the vase how you see fit, then stick the sparklers into the foam. (You could create a pattern if you’re really ambitious.)

Then have your ushers or a few honoured guests walk through the guests and pass out the sparklers! Or, of course, you could put the vases by the door or on the guest book table, and be sure to let people know they’re there! =) (Perhaps at the start of the reception/ceremony, and before the last dance.)

I loved this creative DIY idea I saw on Style Me Pretty a while back.

Please be careful with the sparklers.  My friend got burned a at a wedding by someone with a 36" sparkler!  Since they are so long, you really can’t have people stand behind one another with them.  Also, be sure to keep a large distance between you (namely our veil) and the sparklers. 

Regarding displaying the sparklers – I think the best idea is to use some cute galvanized tin buckets ( like in the last photo) but put sand in the bottom so people have a safe place to deposit their used sparklers.  That has been the problem I have experienced with sparklers at weddings – no safe place to put the already- burned sparklers. Just something to think about…

I was just reading about this; they suggested using a metal galvanized tub from a home store and filling it with playsand/small rocks, whatever. Then stick the bare wire end into the sand to hold them until time for lighting. Once they are expired, guests can put the burnt wire back into the sand; expired end down for safety.

The galavanzied bucket is a litle too “rustic” for me, and I have another metal bucket I’m going to use. However….since I’m a crafty, DIY type, I’m positive that a galvanized bucket could be painted/sprayed/antiqued/wallpapered/decorated with fabric etc…to make it look presentable at a wedding reception. They cost about $21.
