the cost of living is rather low in Kentucky so by having your wedding there, even if it’s a destination wedding, can save you thousands on your entire wedding budget while still providing an unforgettable experience.
Best of all, Kentucky has very loose fireworks laws which means that couples are free to use sparklers during their wedding; provided of course that the venue allows them to be used on their property. Since the biggest draw to Kentucky is for outdoor weddings, almost all of the popular wedding venues allow you to use wedding sparklers as part of your ceremony or reception. This combination of fireworks laws and acceptance by the venue means that there are a lot of couples wondering where to buy wedding sparklers in Kentucky.
Which Sparklers to Choose
Since your Kentucky wedding is likely going to be outside, it opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for you. Most wedding sparklers are made for indoors use, but some of the best ones have too much color pigment to be considered smokeless and safe to use inside a reception hall. However, this isn’t at all a concern when you are outside so you’re free to use any type of sparklers you wish!
With that said the most popular choice for outdoor weddings are #36 wedding sparklers. Also known as 36 inch wedding sparklers, they are the longest-lasting and most enjoyable for the user. They are rarely used indoors because they are way too long if there are low ceilings, but overall they are the best quality and the best value.
Local Fireworks Laws
In general, almost everything is legal under the Kentucky fireworks laws unless it contains over 200 grams of powder. Things like sparklers, bottle rockets, and even firecrackers are totally legal to use and are available all year long. Each city and county, however, does have the right to enact their own regulations regarding the use of sparklers and other small fireworks. Though this is rare and likely not the case in your area, it’s always best to check with your local fire department or city hall to find out the regulations just to be safe.
Origin of Kentucky’s State Name
Kentucky was named from the Kentucky River. While some sources say the etymology is uncertain, most agree on a meaning of "(on) the meadow" or "(on) the prairie". Like most states, the some of the borders of Kentucky are defined by natural water barriers; the Ohio River to the north and the Mississippi River to the west. Kentucky also border seven different US states; West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Only Missouri and Tennessee touch more states (each border 8).
