    Fun!  Towards the end of the night it’s more about fun and less about matchy matchy.  We had some for the few kids at the wedding and they loved it!

    It’s not something that I would do for my wedding but if you like it and you think your guests will enjoy them, then go for it.

    imo, glow sticks belong at raves, and that’s about it.

    I think it’s totally fun! I feel like the fun light-hearted things are what people remember the most, not the china, linens, etc. I love it! 🙂

    A friend of mine had something similar at her wedding and they were a huge hit with both the kids and adults at the reception.  They had the glow necklaces and there are some really funny pictures of guests wearing them.

    We did them as a sendoff.  The pictures aren’t really that great of it though but my husband’s aunt and uncle did enjoy bopping us on the head with them lol.

    I think they’re fun as long as it’s later in the reception.  We had props for our photo booth at our reception that of course migrated onto the dance floor after everyone had a few drinks and the result was a lot of great pictures!  It didn’t matter that they didn’t match the color scheme at that point…

    We put glow sticks in the children’s activity bags we are making for our wedding. I’m sure the kiddos will like them 🙂

    It depends on who is on your guest list? I’m a former raver and so are a lot of my friends so they would be so on that!

    I don’t love the idea, but it’s not my wedding.  I think sparklers might be nicer?

    I think they could be fun and could make for some cool pictures. I don’t know how durable those are but when they break, they make a mess. Also, my 3 year old broke one and got the gel in his eyes and it wasn’t fun for him! But, those were the more flimsy ones you get at a fair or something…

    I’d save them for later in the reception.  Unless there are kids tho, that’s who i always snatch up glow sticks for in our family.

    Rave on!  I like the idea because I like glowsticks.  I dont think my most of my guests would get it though
