Red Ribbon Studio

What a treat.  I have just discovered an amazing photographer who loves bright colors as much as I do.  Maribeth Romslo has such a unique eye, capturing just the  moments and details every bride and groom want to remember.   She obviously has worked with many brides who take great pride in getting everything perfect, down to the tag on the container used for sparklers.  Visit her website at, but please be warned that you will get lost for hours in her amazing photos.  You also might find some  finishing touch ideas for your big day!  Thanks Maribeth for sharing your photos!

Adorable Wedding Tags

I love anything personalized.  Anything.  My poor children never need to wear nametags because their clothes are usually monogrammed or embroided with their names.  Maybe I need to say my poor husband! Back to weddings...I am in love with this website  Their colors are amazing, their website is easy and interactive and their products are really classy.  Browse through their creative ideas section and the sky is the limit.  We ordered the gift tags and used ribbon from to make a cute custom display.  The box is actually from michaels.

We love feedback!

Here is an email we received from a very happy customer: We ordered what seems like a MILLION of your wonderful 36" sparklers for our December 1, 2007 Wedding in Vail, Colorado! Here are some pictures! It was a blizzard and 50-70 mph wind gusts, but we did the sparklers anyway! It was FABULOUS! Our photographer, did a FABULOUS job with "Sparkler Light Writing!" The pictures turned out beautifully with a slow shutter speed, 36" sparklers and some VERY artistic "Love"-ly bridesmaids! Steve and I drew a heart with our 36" sparklers! We all had a ball and the snow didn't even bother us! It made the Sparkle Factor even better! It was perfect! Thank you SO MUCH for providing the "highlight" (pardon the pun) of our evening! Sincerely, Kelly & Steve Heger Grant Oakes Photography � �

What an economy!

It is impossible to turn on The Today beloved show of many years...and not see Jean Chatzky giving advice on how to save money.  Well, when you have plans to get married, you simply are not going to put them on hold for a silly little thing like a downturn in the economy.  The one thing I have always loved about my sparklers, and the idea of using sparklers at weddings, is that they are simply the most affordable "wow" factor you can add.  For $35 (free shipping), you can get 48 of our 20 inch sparklers that will give you the pictures of a lifetime.  I cannot tell you how many people email me saying they spent a fortune on flowers and food but the thing they liked best were the sparklers - which they spent the least amount of money on.  Best wishes! �

Purpose of a Blog

Sparkle has been in business for over 6 years now through the website  Throughout those 6 years, we have had the pleasure of working with all types or brides, mothers of the brides, maids of honors and family friends.  We have also worked with people having weddings with only 30 people and some with almost 600.  What I love about sparklers is that they are a perfect addition for weddings of any size and usually are one of the favorite, most inexpensive touches of the whole evening.  The glow from the sparklers casts such beautiful lighting on the bride and groom as well as the guests - it is like being photographed under candlelight.  The pictures are often the bride and groom's favorites. My goal with this blog is to share ideas and stories from myself as well as prospective and happy customers.  I commonly am asked for suggestions about arranging the sparklers beforehand, where I bought tags for the displays etc.  I want to share websites of trusted companies to help make your day more personal and perfect!  Please pass along any ideas or feedback you have. Thanks! Libba
