Uh oh!
What are cold sparklers?
Funny you mentioned the slide show, I think we're going to do one too. FI and I have known each other since 5th grade and have the same hometown so we have some fun pictures . Good to know that Ivan can bring the equipment. It's going to look okay outside? I guess if it's a big screen, yeah... Let me know how this works too!! What point in the night are you doing it? I was kind of imagining right after our first dance...like it starts while our dance ends? I'm not sure if that'll be awkward though, really haven't thought it through. Maybe before or after speeches? Like you, I want all the scheduled stuff to be done pretty quickly so we can just have fun!!
sorry most of the links I get are to you tube and I cant open those up at work to direct you to one, but googling cold fireworks should give you an idea, just imagine a large sparkler, maybe 4 or 5 feet high shooting sparklers from the ground - I think it looks beautiful for the first dance (one of the advantages of having a DJ is that they will bring stuff like that)
I also went to a local grocery store and bough a whole bunch of sparklers, but I got huge ones, about a foot long that you can hold. I have seen some great pictures of the couple making a heart out of them or writing out love (think very long exposure) anyhow right before our photog leaves I plan to hand them out (we got enough for about half the guests as FH doesnt think that any of his boys will partake) I am hoping to just throw them into checked luggage and call it a day. Although we will be there for about a week before, all I am planning on buying is water bottles (I had water bottle labels made, but to haul water just seemed too much). Finish our drink umbrella place seatings (It will be mostly done here, but final assembly there) and also I was thinking of getting some cuban cigars and mexican themed shot glasses for the guys. Thats it, and I figure I can do all of this very quickly while still hanging out with family and friends, I would much rather just spend time with them then plan once we get there (just my 2 cents)
I have been to a number of outdoor weddings, this will be a first Mexican one though, and I think that the slideshow outside looks great - I think ours is 2 by 3 meters. so 6 by 9 feet or so, so its huge! Kinda scared to see myself in that much detail
I was thinking of starting our slideshow during dinner, and also have our 3 toasts during dinner. At the same time I will also ask Ivan (DJ Doremixx) to just keep the slideshow going for a while after in the background. Might be kinda fun to just see it loop. Mom is putting it together and it should be about 15 min. (90 pictures)
Ok whew, hope I got it all - happy planning ladies!
