Haha, we’re actually hoping our guests will embrace two “send-offs” — one when we exit the church after the ceremony and another at the end of the night leaving the reception location.  Yipes!  Haven’t blogged about these yet!  🙁

I really like the idea of the sparkler send off at the end of the night.  But what if too many people leave early, etc?  Also, one of the reasons I love it is because of the awesome pictures it creates.  But my photographer is going to be gone by then =[

I agree though, will people mind doing it twice?  Or will the sparklers be fun enough that they won’t mind?!

I dont think people will mind doing two send offs but the difficulty is guests that leave before you or guests who don’t want to get herded outside at the end of the reception.

Why do two? You can just combine the ribbons and sparklers! I think it would make for great photographs. And some people are afraid of sparklers (our last bride’s sister was!) so they may prefer the ribbons.

If you want to do two different “send-offs” then I say go right ahead! 🙂  Everyone does things differently these days, so it’s all about whatever you like.  We didn’t do any sort of send-off–our ceremony and reception were at the same site and we were the last ones to leave the party!

I am thinking of doing wands and sparklers too and I had that same question. I think it would be fine to do both!

I really want sparklers, but my parents are convinced that everyone will set themselves on fire. :p

A note about sparklers…my best friend used them for his wedding and afterwards I noticed my dress and my coat had little small burn holes all over them. With any type of wind you just don’t know where those little sparks will end up.

sparklers are also not legal in every state or every venue

@miss bruschetta: I love the idea of having two sendoffs!

I’ve been torn between bubbles and sparklers – maybe I can do both!
