Monday, July 27th, 2015

A wedding is seen to be one of the sweetest ways by which any couple can express their full love for one another. Seeing as this is the case, there is no surprise that every couple would want their wedding to be the most spectacular day on earth.

With wedding sparklers, you can quite literally add a bit of “sparkle” into the bride and grooms exit by arranging a sparkling tunnel for them to walk under.

Firstly, its important to remember that this will not work with regular length sparklers. You will need the longer 36 inch variety because not only do they burn for up to four minutes, they are long enough to ensure that there is enough room for the bride and groom. For safety, ensure that you buy only sparklers with a metal core. Bamboo sparklers tend to disintegrate into hot fragments which can easily burn!

Secondly, after ordering enough wedding sparklers, usually no more than 24 (12 each side) its important to make sure that you are prepared! Ensure there is access to buckets with water for extinguishing the sparklers and also a first aid kit as always.

Before lighting the wedding sparklers, tell everyone your plan and conduct a quick test without lighting and if everything goes well, it is time for the real deal. Ensure your lovely couple is aware of the magnificent tunnel and that guests are standing far enough apart so that sparklers do not come into contact with the bride, groom or other guests. Then get ready, get lit and ensure that a photographer is ready to capture the special moment. It looks absolutely fantastic if timed correctly.

This stunning finale is absolutely unforgettable and the wedding sparklers archway really does look classy and stylish and its something which can be adapted to almost any occasion. Birthdays and anniversaries are some examples. With countless things to do with wedding sparklers, the only thing you and your guests need to be aware of is the safety aspects of wedding sparklers.

If you are considering putting the wedding sparkler tunnel idea into practice, it is highly recommended that you take out a bit of time to rehearse the event. It is important that you are well prepared and that every one attending the event is cautioned about the show to ensure that everyone remains safe. Make sure you keep a few buckets of water near by so that you can easily extinguish the sparklers safely.
