Sparkler Tip #6: Have Good Timing
One of the most common uses for wedding sparklers is as part of the sendoff line. If you are trying to make sure everyone is coordinated for this type of display, you’ll want to either have a sign or make an announcement about where they should line up and how they will light their sparklers. That way, everyone can get lit at the same time so the timing is right to pull it off.
If you are just going to place some sparklers on the table for your guests to use at their own leisure, you probably aren’t too concerned about the timing. However, there are probably certain times you’d prefer them to not be using the wedding sparklers or only certain areas where they can be used. A good way to make sure the guests are informed is to put a little tag at each table the nails down this type of information so there isn’t any confusion.
If you are going to choreograph some photos with things like writing in the air with the sparklers, hopefully your photographer will know what to do. If not, you’ll want to make sure to do some dry runs before everyone lights their wedding sparklers to ensure that the timing is right and you won’t have to abort the photo only seconds after everyone’s sparklers are lit.
