    We had an unexpected firework display at my wedding and it was great fun! We had a casual, backyard wedding in rural KY. Apparently my uncle bought a ton of fireworks for 4th of July and it rained, where he was, so he never used them. So he brought them to the wedding and asked if we wanted to use them. I told him that sounded fun so we set them off shortly after it got dark. We didn’t want to wait until the end because lots of people (including kids) leave before the end and we wanted everyone to get to see them. It wasn’t a big to do. Basically someone went around and yelled “Hey we’re doing fireworks, if you want to come watch” and then my uncle set them off. Some of our neighbors must have thought it was a good idea because a few minutes later we saw some going up a few streets over. I thought it was fun!

    I think it really depends on where you are having your wedding at. IF your wedding is close to a lot of neighbors than it prob would not be a good idea. In some states you are not allowed to do fire works without a license so I would def check with your venue before doing them if you are considering it. I think that fireworks other than on July 4th and new year eve is kind of tacky because they are so loud.

    OMG if you can afford it – go for it!!! My freind had them at her wedding and for me, it was the best, most romantic, amazing part of the entire wedding! I keep joking with Fiance that we need to extend our budget to include fireworks, but the place that would do them near us have prices starting at $5K minimum, so its prob a no-go 🙁 I say do it!!

    I would have done it, was actually one of my dreams to set them off at midnight, but our city doesn’t allow it unless you’re certified. Unfortunately there’s one company here , 3 hours away, who will charge with fire works, $30.000,- for 10 min! You go girl if that’s what you can do!!

    craftylish:  She hired a fireworks company who arranged it with her venue… so there wasn’t much work on her end besides writing the (large) check… it wasn’t like a DIY kind of fireworks display. I know there are permits and stuff that are involved but I would think whatever company you hire to do the fireworks would handle that, or know how exactly that is to be handled. 

    If your asking about timelines I’m not sure. Her wedding was in Canada at a vineyard. There was sone rule about no public loud noises after 11pm so I think they set them off around 10:30

    Heck yeah!!!!!!!  Fireworks are always fun!  Although I’m from Wyoming where there are basically NO restrictions, so we go crazy with fireworks in the summer and NYE.  But yeah, especially given the rural outdoors setting, I think it sounds super fun and festive.

    craftylish:  in toronto I would need to hire a company to do it and I saw around 5-6 k for 2 minutes. Which is not in our budget at all. I love the idea I feel it’s exiting with a “bang” literally lol 

    my brother in law and cousins want to do them illregally but in against the idea lol
