i want to use sparklers for the getaway too- my problem is that the reception will be over at 7:30, so it won’t even be dark outside, AND since we booked the Honeymoon yesterday, we found out we can’t leave til Monday, wedding on a Saturday- so we don’t really have to rush out and even have a getaway. i have a feeling we will just leave these out for those reasons 🙁

Our reception will be over at about 9:45 so not exactly your situation, but our plan is to do the sparkler getway at 9:30, and then we’ll probably head to the hotel a few blocks away, change, and meet up with everyone for the after party.  There is a chance the after party might be at the bar next to the reception venue, so in that case it might be a little funny that we’re just doing a lap and coming back, but oh well!

The wedding I catered for my FI’s neice earlier this year they did this. It was good, but it meant that they had to leave kind of early so that the photographer could take the pictures and so they didn’t get to eat before they left.

How about if you did a sparkler entrance? When you first enter the reception venue as a married couple, could your guests welcome you with sparklers?

I was going to suggest exactly what Cybele said. A sparkler entrance or a false send-off for photo purposes would work just as well. Also how long is your reception? You say that your curfew is midnight, that’s pretty tame for most receptions – I’d be surprised if the majority of your guests didn’t stick around.
