    We did sparklers at the end of the reception.  But, I wish it was setup at our church so we have photos of us coming out with our guests in front to where it looked like a grand exit minus the bubbles, confetti, etc.

    We’re going to be leaving at night, since we’ll have an evening reception, so sparklers sound great! I should probably talk to my Fiance about that decision, haha. 🙂 We originally wanted bubbles, but since it’ll be dark, that would be silly since you couldn’t see them very well…

    Bubbles…because our venue doesn’t allow you to use anything that has to be picked up.  And it’s a morning wedding / afternoon reception…didn’t leave much choice!

    After the reception ends, we’re only going to the bar that is the next room over for an unofficial after party.  It might be silly to have fanfare for walking into the next room with a bunch of our guests…

    We had a small destination wedding so we weren’t going to drive off to anywhere, so the thought of grand exit didn’t really occur. In retrospect, having the sparklers at night might have been a awesome idea.

    The last 2 hours of the reception was a dance party. We thanked the guests as they were leaving (mainly parents/aunt & uncles) and partied with the others until the time was up. Then we all walked up to the hotel rooms together. lol. Not very grand but it was very fun.

    We are going to do ours between the ceremony and the reception. We aren’t going to throw anything. We just want our guests to cheer and clap for us.

    I clicked no, but then I realized we sort of are!  We are leaving the ceremony in a horse and carriage and traveling up the road to our reception venue.  I suppose that counts as a grand exit/entrance??
