Shining up Your Wedding Day with Wedding Sparklers

July 27th, 2015 10:45 pm

A wedding is seen to be one of the sweetest ways by which any couple can express their full love for one another. Seeing as this is the case, there is no surprise that every couple would want their wedding to be the most spectacular day on earth. It is a romantic idea and its certainly something that is proving more and more popular and more and more people are looking for the perfect way to make that evening unforgettable. With wedding sparklers, you can quite literally add a bit of “sparkle” into the bride and grooms exit by arranging a sparkling tunnel for them to walk under.

Firstly, its important to remember that this will not work with regular length sparklers. You will need the longer 36 inch variety because not only do they burn for up to four minutes, they are long enough to ensure that there is enough room for the bride and groom. For safety, ensure that you buy only sparklers with a metal core. Bamboo sparklers tend to disintegrate into hot fragments which can easily burn!

Secondly, after ordering enough wedding sparklers, usually no more than 24 (12 each side) its important to make sure that you are prepared! Ensure there is access to buckets with water for extinguishing the sparklers and also a first aid kit as always.

Before lighting the wedding sparklers, tell everyone your plan and conduct a quick test without lighting and if everything goes well, it is time for the real deal. Ensure your lovely couple is aware of the magnificent tunnel and that guests are standing far enough apart so that sparklers do not come into contact with the bride, groom or other guests. Then get ready, get lit and ensure that a photographer is ready to capture the special moment. It looks absolutely fantastic if timed correctly.

This stunning finale is absolutely unforgettable and the wedding sparklers archway really does look classy and stylish and its something which can be adapted to almost any occasion. Birthdays and anniversaries are some examples. With countless things to do with wedding sparklers, the only thing you and your guests need to be aware of is the safety aspects of wedding sparklers.

If you are considering putting the wedding sparkler tunnel idea into practice, it is highly recommended that you take out a bit of time to rehearse the event. It is important that you are well prepared and that every one attending the event is cautioned about the show to ensure that everyone remains safe. Make sure you keep a few buckets of water near by so that you can easily extinguish the sparklers safely.

Making Wedding Receptions Shine

While you will always look back fondly on that ceremony, what everyone will remember most vividly is the reception. Wedding receptions are meant to be the celebration of your new union. They last three to four hours as opposed to twenty minutes for a ceremony. Receptions thus represent both a wealth of tradition and an opportunity to let your individuality shine through. When it comes to wedding receptions, getting it right will pay off in memories that will last a lifetime.

Get The Right DJ

If you are still deciding between booking a wedding DJ and hiring a band, save yourself a world of trouble and settle quickly on a DJ. They allow you much more versatility, give you more control, and take up so much less space. With that in mind, getting the perfect DJ is possibly the most important decision of your entire wedding.

You want someone who provides so much more than an iPod with a playlist. Wedding receptions are essentially parties with stopping points for tradition. You need someone who can be your master of ceremonies, expertly weaving between first dances, dinner, and cake cutting. Ideally, you’ll want a team, that way one can stay behind the booth and keep control of the music while the other moves through the crowd to keep people engaged.

Delegate and Enjoy

Wedding receptions are unique, shared experiences that provide you with an opportunity to create lasting memories with the people closest to you. Unfortunately, they also have a large number of moving parts that need to be managed and adjusted throughout the celebration. If you are not careful, you can end up spending more time running your reception than you do enjoying all the festivities. It is absolutely essential to have a wedding coordinator on hand to take all the responsibility of managing the party off of your hands.

Meet with your coordinator multiple times before the day itself. They should know everything that you want to accomplish, and when each part should take place. You want to be very careful that your coordinator does not come into the preparations with their own agenda. Professional coordinators have put on so many weddings, there is a danger that they will come into the initial meetings championing ideas that make their job easier, but do not necessarily fit your vision. The ideal coordinator is someone who can take your vision and schedule and simply execute it. They should operate as a shepherd, leading you and your new spouse from event to event, so that your only focus is on your enjoyment.

There are, of course, many other considerations in making your wedding reception as great as possible. However, nailing these two personnel decisions can go a long way towards making your special day everyone’s favorite event of the year.
