Though brilliant wedding sparklers can make any wedding a memorable event, it’s important to observe a few safety tips so that you and your guests will not have an unintentional accident. With so many people attending your wedding and reception, things can get out of hand quickly.
Put Someone in Charge!
The first tip is to control the number of people who have access to the wedding sparklers. They should not be left lying around where even a child could pick them up and play with them. It may be a good idea to put someone in your wedding party in charge of the wedding sparklers and ask that person to make sure that users are mature enough to observe a few common safety precautions.
Choose the Right Lighting Method
The second tip concerns lighting the sparklers. The 10 inch sparklers light instantly, the 20 and 36 inch light better from another sparkler. In order to make sure that your sparklers are safely lit when needed, have a few guests spread out with lit sparklers (lit from the lighting sparklers we provide). Of course, once you get one sparkler lit, it can be used to light dozens of others within just a few moments.
How to Carry Lit Sparklers
Once the wedding sparklers are lit, it’s important to carry them and wave them around in a safe manner. Always keep lit sparklers away from clothing, face, and eyes. Watch for those around you as well. Sometimes wedding guests are having such a great time that they don’t pay attention to what they are doing. Many weddings serve alcoholic beverages as well and guests can become careless after a few drinks.
While waving lit sparklers, it’s best not to wave them too fast. A slow, steady motion will produce the best results.
Keep sparklers away from flammable materials such as gasoline, hairspray, nail polish, or alcohol. When lighting them, visually check the area to make certain there are no flammable items nearby.
How to Dispose of the Used Wedding Sparklers
Once the party is over, it’s time to pick up all the used sparklers and dispose of them properly. Remember that some of them may still be warm or hot from recent use. It’s best to have a bucket of sand or water around where you can safely dispose of the used sparklers. Once you are sure the fire is out completely, then it’s safe to throw them into a trashcan or trash bag.
