i like that idea. My resort allowed Chinese lanterns so we did that at the end which was awesome. I kind of liked breaking the dancing up. A few things ..I wouldn't count on Walmart to have them because PV Walmart did not and its not a normal thing Walmart carries I believe. My next point would be do not bring them on plane! I was thinking about sneaking them on but they are considered an explosive so you risk a felony charge... It's not like they would just throw them away it would be a big deal and I would not want to risk being detained before my wedding! I'd ask my WC to arrange

@nadiakat17

 

Thanks for advice!  Ya, no sparklers on the plane.  If I were allowed sparklers on the plane I wouldn't even think twice.  Dollar store carries them.  

 

@perianjay I am going to make a tag for each sparkler.  It will say,

 

Let Amor Sparkle

light our first dance

June 20, 2015

A&B

 

 

I was thinking of having them at a table with a sign that says "Please join us for a sparkling first dance" or something like that. 

We'll probably tell our bridal party ahead of time so that they can make sure people are on the ball for this.

@veryvalentine Cute! I haven't even thought of tags yet. If you do make them.. would you mind sharing your template with me?? :)

 

Also, don't know if you saw my other post, but how do you think you will have them all lit at the same time? I was thinking about how to do this. I don't want to bring 30 lighters lol.

 

Great idea with having them on the table. I think we plan to have our first dance in the very beginning of the reception (before eating) so I may just have the resort put a sparker beside each plate with the note about lighting the first dance.

@perianjay

 

Will it be dark yet at the beginning of the reception?  Oh you are a December bride so it probably will be ;)

 

hmmm...I thought about it and I think what we will do is have the bridal party = 10 people equipped with lighters and then they start lighting everyone as they form a circle.  people will probably need 2 or 3. 

 

It seems picture perfect in my head...but I could see how the circle might not be so perfect if people have to re-light.  lol 

We have about 40-50 guests so I think that with 10 people lighting them it should be fine.  Once people have their sparkler lit they can light someone else's too.

 

I'll def. share the template once it finish putting it all together.  :)

@veryvalentine I've been wanting to do this as well but not sure how feasible it is to get sparklers so thanks for starting the thread!

@perianjay thanks for the tip on asking your photographer, I'll see if he can get some for me.

Do you guys think you can light them by having lit candles (bigger ones) say maybe a few or one on each table then use those to light the sparklers? The candles would have to be in a bigger hurricane vase so they stay lit. If outside and windy, it may be hard to get a lighter lit!

I've read, because of course I googled, "how to light sparklers for a send off"  and they said that it was easier to light sparklers using another sparkler.  Matches would require you to be too close to the sparks, a lighter works as well. 

 

I contacted our d├ęcor girl from Love and Lace and she sells the sparklers for $3cnd each.  ouch. They are 45cm long though, so we may only need 1 per person as it might last long enough.  That's like 100 in sparklers :(    ugh.

@veryvalentine Eeek. That's so expensive. I'm paying $1 a piece and they are 50cm sparklers.

@perianjay Those are epic sparklers.  I wonder if your photographer could tell us where to get them?  :)
