Sparkler Tip #3: Have Enough Space
Using Sparklers Indoors
If you are using your wedding sparklers indoors, there are a few things to keep in mind. First off, you’ll want to make sure that your state laws allow for indoor sparkler use as well as your reception venue itself. Many states don’t allow you to use sparklers indoors, and venues can be even stricter on this matter.
If it’s allowed and legal, the next thing you’ll want to do is make sure there aren’t any fire hazards around. Make sure you give your guests plenty of space to safely use their sparklers without fear of injury or any other potential concerns. You will also want to make sure that your sparklers are low-smoke or smokeless if you are going to use them indoors to prevent smoking everyone out of the reception hall.
Using Sparklers Outdoors
If you are using your wedding sparklers outdoors, you have some extra options and an overall easier planning program versus using them indoors. However, you also need to be aware of how dry the weather has been because you can easily cause a fire outdoors if you are in the middle of a drought or in a dry climate.
Also, you’ll want to make sure you setup your sendoff line away from trees, brush, or any overhead obstructions to ensure you aren’t creating a situation that has fire-prone possibilities. You also need a good plan for extinguishing your used sparklers such as a bucket of water, as well as a contingency in case a fire breaks out such as fire extinguishers and logical evacuation routes.
