Wedding Sparklers in Southwest Commercial

Southwest Airlines & Sparklers Online Finding out a national brand wants to use sparklers in a television commercial is always exciting. What usually happens is a Production Assistant calls and says they need the sparklers the following morning. We usually try to avoid these last minute requests because the sparklers have to be shipped vis UPS Ground. With Southwest Airlines, the advertising agency called us with plenty of time for shipping. Thank you, Southwest! They had a vision and knew a wedding sparkler exit was going to be a scene. We never know how the sparklers are going to be used and if they will be used. Our wedding sparklers are used in different ways and for this commercial they used our 36-Inch Wedding Sparklers. This Southwest commercial was meant to be funny and show a humorous side of a girl on the “wedding circuit” - brides...you know what we mean. The scene towards the end is of the wedding sparkler send-off and it is perfect! Watch the video below and we will guarantee a smile on your face.

How Hot Are Sparklers? The Science Behind Your Wedding Light Show

According to a report from MPR, wedding sparklers can burn as hot as a blow torch. But there's much more to the science and safety of sparklers than this simple statement. While facts like this may sound alarming, in reality, sparklers are nothing like handling a large open flame! So how hot are sparklers really? And if they're as hot as some claim, why don't they feel that hot? Keep reading to find out the basics of how sparklers are made, the science behind our sparklers, and what gives them their namesake sparkle. Shop Your Sparklers Now! Where were Sparklers Invented? Most people know that fireworks originated in China. But what about the sparkler? The first sparkler is actually believed to have come from Heliopolis, one of the major cities of Ancient Egypt. While evidence points to the first sparkler being a weapon, it was quickly adapted for festivals and celebrations. As far back as AD 670, people were celebrating love and victory with sparklers -- just as we do today! What are Sparklers Made of? There are four key components to any sparkler: fuel, an oxidizer, a binder, and metal powder. These chemicals are mixed with water to create a paste. This paste is then coated onto the sparkler "handle" and allowed to dry. The fuel is what keeps the sparkler burning all the way down once it's been lit. Without this the sparkler would die out shortly after being lit -- nobody wants to relight their sparkler several...

Sparkler Writing: How to Take Great Photos of Your Wedding Sparkler Messages

Think weddings are over? A popular belief is that the younger generation no longer believes in marriage. Despite that claim, around 35% of adults in the country still want to get married at some point in their lives. Weddings are great milestones in life, with the union of two lovers cementing their relationship into something almost inseparable. A great way to accentuate your wedding is the use of sparklers. There are a lot of unique things you can do with it. But if you want to make great memories, you can make sparkler writing and take photos with it. Read on if you want to know how to take sparkler messages on your wedding day like a pro. 1. The Set Up You need to collaborate with your wedding photographer with this. They need to use long shutter speeds or Bulb mode if their camera has the capabilities. The photographer needs to have a tripod to put the camera on since the lack of support will result in shakes that can spoil the shots. If they don't have a tripod, a good alternative is a level surface where the camera can rest without movements. Working in Bulb mode needs a remote or cable release since the shutter needs to be open. A shake can appear in your shot even if you hold down the shutter button with your finger. Without the use of Bulb mode, your photographer needs to set the exposure going. They can use the self-timer option of...

What could you do that will make your pictures and memories stand out from everyone else's ceremonies? Your answer may be a sparkler send-off. Learn all about these beautiful exits here to determine if they are right for you and how, exactly, you go about preparing for one. What Is a Wedding Exit? Don't be embarrassed about not knowing the term. It's one of those vague notions that we see more in movies than in real life, so it's good to have a solid understanding of what a wedding send off really is. Most people mix up the process with the recessional, but the big difference is that the wedding exit is purely for the bride and groom. A recessional is for the entire wedding party at the end of the ceremony. When the send-off occurs is entirely up to the couple. Some prefer to do it after the ceremony and on the way to the reception hall. Others prefer it to be at the very end of the night. How to Plan a Sparkler Send-Off Planning a sparkler send off requires some extra planning, but the photos and fun are well worth it.

How To Plan A Proper Wedding Sparkler Sendoff

If you've trawled through Pinterest for wedding inspiration, then you'll probably already know that a wedding sparkler sendoff is perfect for gorgeous wedding photographs. You know the ones, the kind where the happy newlyweds are walking hand in hand as they exit their wedding venue, surrounded by smiling friends and family waving sparklers around. These pics are nothing short of dreamy, and they're great fun too. With that in mind, let's dive into how you can organize your own. First Things First You need to ensure your wedding venue allows sparklers, this is essential. Rest assured, most places allow them especially as nowadays wedding sparklers are incredibly safe and easy to manage. Some places have even had dedicated areas for these kinds of send-offs. This is hardly surprising when you consider how popular they are! Sometimes, the venue staff (providing you've asked them beforehand) will even help you pull this off. Which Sparklers Are Best? Our best advice is to source longer sized sparklers. Typically, these have a longer burn time, making them a more practical choice for weddings. Some premium sparklers are as long as 36 inches! Make sure you buy enough, so each guest has at least two. Top Tip: even if you opt for longer sparklers, instruct your guests to light them one at a time (this bides the happy couple a little more time). If you don't like the look of the extra-long sparklers, never fear. You can still get away with using the standard size...
