If it were me, I’d do one per guest!

I’ve heard that sometimes when you give everyone sparklers, there are huge problems with everyone successfully lighting them at different times, etc. I’m considering just giving the bridal party the sparklers? But I feel bad, because I think that takes away some of the fun for the guests.

@lily that’s kind of what you want, because it should make for more interesting pics if they start and stop at different times.

I am having around 200 guests and ordering 300 probably.

Thats a good question.. It just depends on if your going to have trouble lighting 100+ of those things, so that they dont burn out before you want them to.

If you are ordering the really long 36 inch ones like we did, you only need 1 per guest as they have a 4 minute burn time.

I’m thinking 2 per guest, and I’m going to get those dirt cheap match packs from the Weddingchannel (or the knot) shop with our name and such on them. They’re like $15/100 or something like that. We’re not doing favors, so I figure they can keep the matches, haha. Does that make me cheap? Maybe, but I’m also efficient!
