You’re way overthinking this, people will just be super excited to learn there’s going to be fireworks! Tell them however you like. You can just get the MC to say it if you like.

I’d probably spread it by word of mouth both pre- and during reception.  Maybe on a wedding website if you have it, but I don’t think I’d include it on/in the invitation.

I don’t think it’s suck-up or braggy to inform your guests of events, though, so no worries there!

andielle :  Jealous!! I too am having a July wedding and with 4th of July being my fave holiday, I wanted fireworks, but they aren’t allowed at my venue. I second the poster who mentioned a schedule of events. Go that route! Or just call it a “surprise” at the end of the night!

andielle :  I don’t think it’s stuck up, but it is a little over the top. That said, if you’re concerned about people leaving, I would make some sort of schedule of events for the day and have it on display in the reception space (maybe by the bar) so people can see it. Not everyone is going to read through a wedding website. FWIW, I think we had 20 people leave our reception early and that’s only a guesstimate because everyone I wanted to be there was still there when we left. If you keep the party going and it doesn’t fall flat, people will stay.
