We plan on doing a sparkler exit and I have found a good deal on some that a couple weren’t able to use at their wedding. They last about 90 seconds, will that be long enough? We plan on having 75-100 guests at our wedding if that makes any difference. I’ve read other posts about using ones that last like 3 minutes but good lord the ones I’ve seen are expensive!
Here’s the link to where they originally ordered them from, just in case anyone else used the same ones and had good results: http://www.epartyunlimited.com/20-gold-sparklers.html

We had long ones (that lasted around 2 minutes) – we did a trial run with regular sized ones and they didn’t last as long as we needed them to. Honestly, as long as you have a few people there in the crowd ready to help you get them lit, they should be okay!

Thanks Mrs. Jaguar! The minute and a half still makes me nervous, especially after hearing about people using 3-4 minute sparklers :/

I believe ours were 90 seconds (they arn’t the short ones that people use on the 4th, those seem to only last like 30 seconds)
To ensure that we had time, we had our designated “lighter people” who took several and lit them all at one & passed them out to the guests who were already standing in a line. Then we walked out – and all were still lit 🙂

They are so expensive! It pretty much caused an argument between Fiance and myself because he insisted that sparklers are sparklers and we could get them from a firework stand. I wound up buying these from a couple that was unable to use them in their wedding due to the burn bans. They ordered them from here: http://www.epartyunlimited.com/20-gold-sparklers.html. It says they last 90 secs, I would imagine that if we light a few and then just have everyone light theirs off of each others that we could get them all lit quickly. Plus, I wasn’t willing to shell out more than $40 for sparklers, so these will have to do either way lol.
