I was reading a wedding magazine today and they mentioned an idea of giving guests glowing sticks to have while dancing. I thought it was a very cute and different idea. I thought about maybe having glowing sticks or necklaces somewhere on the bar and the DJ would mention the glowing sticks if people want to grab any before starting the party and such..
Is this idea silly or could be something fun?

I went to a wedding in mexico that had glow necklaces, all different kinds of hats, etc… it was very very fun to have something new come out every once in a while.
I don’t know if I would have the DJ mention it, or just like pass them out?

Hmm..I was thinking could be part of their favors to use at the reception? But no not passing them out.

Totally fun! We are doing glowsticks for only the kids at the reception, and for everyone at the after party 🙂

One of our Groomsmen brought them and it was so much fun! people were making them into glasses, bracelets, necklaces etc. I had seen them at a friends wedding and really loved it… I didn’t want to steal their idea but they surprised me and brought them on their own!

eh I think of this as more of a bar mitzvah or sweet 16 party thing.

umm well im guilty..
we had glow sticks at our wedding and had an absolute BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
We put them in 7 cute jars and spread them out of the reception on the side tables… my DOC (my friend) Amanda cracked a few in the jars before the guest arrived and all of the guests were wearing them by the end of the night! But it was a totally fun vibe. Our reception was adults only and cocktail style.
I dont have my official pics back of the reception so I cant give you what it looked like on the night.. but here is a pic of the jar that had them in. Our colors were orange and red 🙂

i wouldn’t do it for my wedding, but it’s only because it’s never my type of thing (personal preference).
i think it depends on what kind of theme you want your wedding to be. but it can be a fun thing and younger guests will for sure enjoy it!

Mmm. I haven’t voted as i’m not sure. I think like TingTing says it depends on the theme of your wedding.

I had considered glow necklaces as I remember having them at a wedding as a guest but gave up on the idea. Unbeknownst to me, my DJ brought and distrubuted some glow sticks on the dance floor and everyone had fun with them. He did it later on in the night and onlyo n the dace floor so it was not a big thing. I would recommend it after seeing the response.

I went to so many sweet 16’s that had glow-stuff that I don’t think I could stomach it at my wedding…but like PPs have mentioned, it depends on what you want your wedding theme to be!

I was in a wedding a couple of weekes ago and we had glow sticks later in the night. We had the bracelet ones and the few kids that were there put a bunch together and were covered from head to toe in them. I thought it was fun and we were trading them around!

I love this idea! At the wedding where you have seen this done was it just younger people that had them or did all ages get in on the fun?

We had a very formal wedding with a mixed crowd of younger people (twenties) and older (forty+) and everyone loved them… i think it is more about the attitude of your guests than the theme of your wedding.

@Allyser: did you buy them online? I have been thinking about doing this, but have seen a lot of mixed reviews about different brands and issues with them already glowing when you get the shipment or some not working at all. Do you know what brand you bought?
