Are you thinking about an exit for your wedding? Do you simply love sparklers and want to add them to your wedding day? Are you already married but like looking at pretty pictures? If you answered yes to any of the above questions this is the perfect blog post for you. Wedding sparklers can add a little extra something to any grand exit.
I am not going to lie, I love fireworks. Sparklers happen to be year round fireworks in my opinion. I’ve always enjoyed sparklers so this idea of wedding sparklers and sparkler exits just make me smile. There are the inherent risks and roadblocks, but if allowed and done right, sparklers at your wedding can be so much fun.
First, make sure to ask your venue for permission to use sparklers. If they don’t allow sparklers there are always other fun options. Get a list from your venue of approved exit items and we can have plenty of fun night time shots with anything. For instance, glow sticks, no fire, still fun! Sparklers are not just an exit option. Sometimes I advise a mock exit for safety reasons. Also for better pictures because lets face it that’s why you hired me right?
A mock exit is done when guests are still having fun, but not to much fun. You can still get their attention and still trust them with fire around your beautiful wedding attire. It’s also sometimes nice on your budget if you aren’t paying for your photographer to stay until the end of the night. A mock exit is more controlled than a natural wedding exit. It is less rushed and therefore pictures can be done correctly. Guests are usually less rowdy which means less likely to cause a fire mishap. I also recommend when buying sparklers that you buy the longer ones. The short ones you can buy go out too quickly and by the time half the guests have them lit the other half is out.
Other sparkler options besides the exits can have little to no guest participation. If you are spelling anything out I recommend using your bridesmaids they tend to be more helpful and better at instructions, no offense groomsmen. The heart pictures can be done just by the couple. All other fun sparkler pictures might need one or two helpful participations, that don’t mind running around.
What can I say I always enjoy sparklers at weddings.
