Unbox your sparklers and distribute them to your wedding guests.
You’ll want to make sure each guest has at least one sparkler — two if you want a second chance at photographs!
Lighting the sparklers is the trickiest part. They should all be lit around the same time, which can be difficult to do with a conventional lighter.
We’ve found the best way to light sparklers is with a constant flame – that way more than one person can light at a time. Casey’s Fireworks builds custom Sparkler Stations, complete with a 4-hour chafing fuel lighter, and surrounded by a base of sand. After the sparklers burn down, they can be extinguished safely in the sand.
The light given off by sparklers can make for some incredible photographs. But it can also be tricky for wedding photographers to capture. For best results, crouch down with a good view of the bride and groom and the sparkler “tunnel” overhead. You need to shoot at the fastest shutter speed you can to freeze the motion (using a flash spoils the light from the sparklers) and – if they’re willing – have the bride and groom walk by twice.
Casey’s Fireworks is here to help you design a perfect wedding reception, one that you’ll remember for a lifetime. No matter your budget, Casey’s can add some sparkle to your wedding. The more sparklers you need, the more money you save.
Best of all, unlike shopping for sparklers online (which can often arrive broken or late), one of our friendly professionals will be happy to assist you in person to select exactly what you need. And you don’t have to pay for shipping.
