We are going to be having a fireworks show at the end of our wedding night and I’m really excited about it! I really want to notify guests about it somehow, as I would hate to have guests leave early and miss it! Maybe it will get them to stay throughout the night ;). I thought about writing it on an enclosure card somehow, but just felt too self conscious about it and like I was bragging. Would it be too stuck up to put it on our wedding website somehow? Any tips on how to word it?

You could put a schedule of events on your website. That would inform your guests without it coming off as bragging.

I wouldn’t know how to word it, but no it doesn’t seem stuck up in the slightest. I think it’s really cute and sounds fun/special

I would just include a little card that said something along the lines of “Join us for a fireworks show after the party! Fireworks will begin at 11:30 sharp!” I don’t think it will be stuck up at all.

What is “stuck up” about a fireworks display at the end of the evening?

hikingbride : That’s a good idea!
smalltownbigworld : Unfortunately I already order my invitations/enclosure card so it’s too late to do this. :/
beethree : I was just thinking that it might come across as too over the top.

how about the mc just tell the crowd there is a little suprise at 11:30
I also like the idea of mentioning the fireworks on the program card.
I have never seen a wedding website so hqve no idea how it works… but would people forget about fireworks if they read on website ? Sqme thing w enclosure card – would the guests forget what they read by the time wedding rolls around?

Well, how will people know about the fireworks otherwise? lol Word of mouth can only do so much.

definitely include on your website or on your program if you have one.
it won’t come across as bragging.
You could say something like “11pm Fireworks & Grand Departure”

Don’t worry, it’s not going to seem stuck up. There’s many normal wedding things that cost more than people think 🙂

I don’t see why this is stuck up. I’d want to know about it. Is it too late to order just little cards to include? I know you already got your invites printed…Maybe a quick order of however many? Otherwise you can make a sign? Like instead of a welcome sign a join us at the lawn at x time for fireworks!

We had fireworks as well but we didn’t tell our guests. We knew we’d still have a lot of guests at 10:30 (when we did the show) so we didn’t think we needed to let anyone know. It was a huge surprise! I wouldn’t worry about guests leaving early. Some will leave early regardless.

I actually don’t like fireworks so some warning in advance would be great so that I could leave before them. 🙂

StacyLynn313 : makes a good point, some people have PTSD so advanced notice is important. You could have the programs have it on there or the DJ announce it.

sparklies : seconded.
Not only is it not stuck up/braggy, its really very considerate to let everyone know ahead of time. 🙂
