On the Dance Floor: Have your wedding planner or responsible friend pass the sparklers out before your first dance; then, ask your Emcee or DJ to make an announcement alerting guests. You want as many participating as possible. Ask guests to gather around the dance floor with their lit sparklers. I think the gorgeousness of this photo speaks for itself.

On the Wedding Cake: Just when you thought icing couldn’t get any better. A wedding cake or cupcakes adorned with glowing sparklers will give you the most festive cake-cutting moment, ever. We love heart shaped sparklers like these from Wedding Sparkler Direct, as well as these cutie pie Love Sparkler Wands from Ruche.
To Send a Message: Love this one! Spelling out words like love or your new initials with sparklers makes for fantastic photos that you’ll want to frame and hang. Promise. Also, consider writing out a thank you message, or gracias with sparklers for a shorter message. Turn your photograph into a card and voila! Check buying thank you cards off your list.

The Getaway: For a grand finale exit make your getaway amid a shower of sparklers and fireworks. If this is a bit too grand of a gesture for your taste (and/or wallet sine we are talking affordability today) then consider scaling this down to a getaway scooter ride through a tunnel of sparklers. Both will be brilliant and unforgettable.
