    Hi Ladies,

    I'm really wanting to walk out of the reception though sparklers instead of the usual flower petals or bubbles. Have any of yall ever used or are planning to use sparklers? A friend of mine went to a fireworks stand in TX to try them out and they were terrible, but I'm wondering if there are any made specifically for weddings that aren't too large or "firery". Any suggestions? I've looked at some websites, but not sure if they're just like the ones from the stands on the highways. I know there is a law in Texas of when you can purchase or have firecrackers shipped into the state, and my deadline is January 1st, so I HAVE to get on this fast. Any help or advice would be so greatly appreciated!

      I don't have a personal experience, but I have seen it on the forum a couple of times... let me see what I can dig up.

        Casey, I was just thinking about the same thing the other day.

        Does anyone know where I can find them in Playa del Carmen? I don't think I can take them with me into Mexico.

          Ok... here's what I found:

          Leia used them (you can see them in the pictures here) I'm not sure if the pictures help you decide what to get, but here they are anyways:


          Some other brides w/pictures that used sparklers: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t25828

          Here Sandy mentions the sparklers she used - and mentioned they were really long! http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t22191

          And this is an awesome thread (with pictures)!! http://bestdestinati...com/forum/t5363

          Ok, I didn't find as much as I thought I would, but the last thread attached is a pretty good one.

                Did you personally use theirs? I just hate that all these sites say they are the best... duh... they're trying to sell them! But hearing it first hand from someone that's used them is much more credible. Thanks for the site!!!

                  I've been to 2 weddings that used sparklers (I dont know what kind) and here is what I suggest - make sure you have plenty of room for your "walk-way".

                  Sparklers shoot off hot ash, so people hold them away from their clothes, etc. Which means they aim them towards the "walk-way" where you will be walking.

                  The first wedding I went to was around a pool, so people had no where to go (a step back and they went into the pool!). The bride was so scared she would ruin her dress with hot ash, she waited until the sparklers burned out before she walked down the walk-way. I dont blame her at all, but it kinda missed the point of having sparklers :)

                  The other wedding was a bigger party, so people were a little more drunk. The guys ended up holding the sparklers towards each other and I remember seeing several burns. It was funny, because they had done it to themselves and the burns werent bad, but the girls were scared to death so they all ran to the other side of the lawn.

                  I think they look great, you just need to have plenty of room so people can spread out!

                    I was thinking of getting sparklers for my sisters wedding in playa del carmen...
                    anyone know if there is anywhere to get them without having to go through the resort?
