Idaho has also risen steadily.
Different Varieties of Sparklers
One thing that many people don’t know when buying wedding sparklers is that they are actually quite different from the type you use on Independence Day or New Year’s Eve. Besides the fact that they come in much more elegant packaging that has a color scheme and graphics better suited for a romantic event such as a wedding, they also are made to be smokeless so you can use them indoors. This is really important because most receptions take place inside, and nobody wants to get smoked out while using their sparklers. Wedding sparklers can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, but most commonly they will be gold in color and 10 inches, 20 inches, or 36 inches in length. You can choose to buy your sparklers in various unique shapes such as hearts or numbers, but the standard stick type sparklers tend to last longer and burn more consistently.
Know the Regulations
Like all states, Idaho has made its own rules and regulation regarding the use of wedding sparklers. Some areas of the state only allow them to be used around the 4th of July, while other areas are a little more lax and allow their use year round. Regardless of what time of year you are planning to have your wedding, you should always contact the local authorities to make sure that using sparklers at your wedding is in line with the Idaho fireworks laws before you make your purchase. You should also check with your venue to make sure you can use them at all, or if they require an additional fee, permit, or fire insurance to be purchased for their lawful use.
A Few Historical Facts about Idaho
Unlike most states in our country, the name Idaho has somewhat mysterious origins. It came from congressional lobbyist George M. Willing suggesting the name “Idaho” citing that it derived from a Shoshone word meaning "the sun comes from the mountains" or "gem of the mountains". Later on, Willing came clean and informed he made the name up completely. Though congress named the area the Colorado Territory in 1861, a community named “Idaho Springs” was created and later inspired the state’s final name; or at least that’s our best guess.
