The most popular use for wedding sparklers is to be used as a replacement for rice, confetti, or birdseed during the sendoff line. The biggest benefit with using sparklers for this purpose is that there is virtually zero cleanup, and they make for much more dramatic photos. If you are planning to use sparklers for your sendoff line at your wedding, you are probably wondering what the best size sparklers for sendoff lines are. While their really isn’t a “correct” answer for this question, I believe 36” wedding sparklers are your best option, and I will discuss their many benefits for this purpose below.
Probably the most important feature that 36” sparklers bring to the table during a sendoff line is that they last for over 3 minutes. This can be of vital importance because you want your wedding sparklers to burn long enough to get everybody’s lit, handed out, and then get everyone into position for your sendoff line. While choosing sparklers that are shorter than 36” sparklers will seem to save you money at first, you will end up using more sparklers total or have people without their sparklers burning still. Duration is crucial when choosing the best size sparklers for a sendoff line, and 36” sparklers reign supreme in this category.
Size of Effects
Another major benefit of using 36” sparklers for your sendoff line is that they produce much bigger effects than other sparklers. The reason for this is that they are not only much longer; they are also much thicker than any other sparkler. This makes for some very large sparkles that are captured easily and beautifully on film for your scrapbook, and also makes the entire experience much more visually stunning.
Ability to Handle Easily
One of the most overlooked benefits of using 36” sparklers for your sendoff line is that they are easy to handle and get high in the air. Some of the coolest effects are created when your guests can their sparklers high in the air above your heads, and then the sparkles can “rain” down from above like a waterfall of magic. This also makes 36” sparklers safer than many other types of sparklers for this purpose because the sparkles will have time to cool before they fall too far; which ensures that you won’t have any damage to your wedding dress or other delicate items. While this is usually not a problem, it is nice to have the peace of mind that you are protecting your most valuable purchase while enjoying your sendoff line.
