does anyone have a good source for sparklers? I am looking for the 20″ gold (non-color) sparklers for my send-off. The cheapest I have seen is from weddingsparklersdirect.com for .35 cents/sparkler.
Also, I am expecting around 120 people. Does it look cheap to have 1/ guest? or is it standard to have them 2/guest?

It would depend on how long they last.
We went with the 36″ from ilovesparklers.com as they last 3 1/2 minutes each where the ones you list are 1 1/2 min each, hence why the recommend 2-3 per person.
I think if you are wanting a photo op then I would go with the longer lasting ones, especially if you have a lot of people that need to light them up. Some might go out before others even get theirs lit.

We got ours from a truck stop/firework store, they were super cheap. We had 300 guests and got about 400 sparklers. I agree it depends on how long/time they last. We had everyone’s lit by 2 lighters in enough time to walk through and halfway back and through again for more photos. They were just normal length ones.

MrsN14: I wish I had thought far enough in advance to do that!! All of our fireworks stands are closed, by now. Boo.
