So our reception is over at 8 PM, it will be quite chilly and dark in the parking lot. Our wedding and venue is indoors. But I thought since it will be night that sparklers would be gorgeous for guests to use as we leave to our car. Bubbles I don’t think would work because no one will be able to see them since it’s dark. I love the idea of the pretty picture this would make. I’m pretty sure our venue allows them because I saw another reception there recently that had them. So any thoughts or ideas?
Is it weird to use sparklers for a November wedding?

As I guest, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near it. I don’t want to burn holes in my nice clothes.
As a bride, I wouldn’t want a sparkler spend-off for the same reason; don’t want holes in my dress!
As you can tell, I hate the idea of sparklers at any wedding.

We did it… As you can see I was a little worried about my hair catching on fire since it was saturated in hair spray, I was leaning into my husband! As far as I know there were no holes burnt into clothes, and there certainly weren’t any burned into my dress.
I thought it was really fun! I also love love love this picture!!!

I love it! I wanted fireworks at the end of my reception but that amount of money is NOT in my budget.

There was an interesting post about sparklers a while ago. Definitely quite a few people have been burned, seen or heard of someone getting burned. Be careful, especially if the reception involves alcohol!

We are doing sparklers for our first dance (outdoors, on the beach) – I love them in photos! And no, it is NOT wierd for a November wedding at all… they are not just for the Fourth of July. 🙂
One thing to keep in mind is how many guests you have. The more guests, the longer the sparklers should be (so they don’t burn out while everyone lights them). The longest ones I’ve seen are 3 feet and last 3-4 minutes. I believe they’re recommended if you have more than 100 guests. There are also 2-foot sparkers. The super-short ones may not work unless you give each guest more than one so they can keep lighting one off of the other.

I LOVED our sparkler exit. It was perfect. No one was hurt, we had plenty long sparklers, the lighting was prepared well and we didn’t rush and not get a good photo.
