Wedding Sparkler Checklist

Are Sparklers Legal?

Before you buy sparklers you need to make sure it’s legal to possess them in your state. In North Carolina sparklers are legal. If you’re unsure about your area you can use this resource to see what types of fireworks and sparklers are legal for your state.

Does Your Venue Allow Sparklers?

Next you’ll need to make sure that your venue will allow you to use sparklers. Be transparent with the venue’s staff about how you plan on using sparklers to ensure there will not be any problems. Also make sure you inform the staff that you’re using wedding sparklers and not the regular sparklers you find for the 4th of July.

How Many Sparklers Will You Need to Buy?

This will depend on a few factors, most importantly how you plan on using them. If you’re using sparklers just for the wedding sendoff then the number will be pretty easy to figure out. You’ll need one sparkler per wedding guest. Refer back to your guest list to get this number. Be aware that about 10% of the guests will not stay until the very end of the night so you can order less than the total number of guests on your list. If you’re incorporating sparklers in other ways then your estimating will be a little more difficult.

Lighting the Sparklers

Make sure you have a way to ignite the sparklers. A grill lighter, butane lighter, or candles work great.

Disposing of Used Sparklers

After your guests have used the sparklers have a metal bucket or bin to dispose of them. They’ll still be hot so you should not just throw them in the trash. This will melt trash bags and could cause a fire as well.
