I’ve seen some cute pictures. I think they were put out after the cake was cut and the party actually started. You could have your DJ announce it too.

Stephanie Andrasek :  i find glo sticks to be super fun as a party guest; but i’ve never seen pictures where they actually look good. so if you’re in it for the pics, then…no. but if you just want to get people on the dance floor, then yes!

I recently went to a wedding that had glow sticks. If I remember correctly, they were placed on the tablea after the cake was cut and the party was about to begin like others have mentioned. Most seemed to enjoy it, but I felt whatever about them.

We did this at our wedding and it was such a blast. We did more than just glow sticks.  Throughout the night we had boas, glow necklaces, flashing rings and some other items I’m forgetting now that it has been 3 years.  We had our DJ pass things out to people on the dance floor at different times throughout the evening.  It got almost everyone dancing, even people who have never danced at a party before!  It was such a blast and I highly recomend it!

We were doing glow sticks and glow necklaces for our exit and took them out with only a couple of songs left.   I actually wish we took them out earlier though because they were a huge hit.  I like the suggestion someone had about taking them out after the cake cutting.

I had a basket of glowsticks, glow necklaces, and glow braclets… They all went. Everyone loved them. They didn’t effect the photos either way. We had them in a basket near the bar, and later in the night, one of our guests took the basket to the dance floor and was just handing them out to everyone. It was a good time.

Idk, I’ve never heard anyone say “Well I wasn’t going to dance, but now that there’s a glow stick necklace on my body, I’m tearing. shit. upppppppp” Basically, I don’t think there’s a strong correlation between the two.

We had them at the kids table at each place setting. You can see the kiddos wearing them in the pic below. It’s not immediately obvious that they are glow sticks from the pictures though. We had a wild dance party and the glow sticks had nothing to do with it! Our DJ was a rockstar and got everyone going with a conga line and then played awesome dance music until we were kicked out of the venue. DJ > glow sticks when it comes to dancing!
