Webster’s Dictionary defines a sparkler as a firework that emits little sparks, a person or thing that sparkles (you gorgeous brides, obviously), a sparkling gem, especially a diamond (clearly your wedding ring).
Smokeless is such a funny word. I understand it to mean having less smoke. Webster’s dictionary means it as emitting, producing, or having little or no smoke. Brides want it to mean absolutely positively not a single bit of smoke.
When you put the two words together you are basically saying you would like to have a firework that emits sparks to have little or no smoke. Now that makes perfect sense. There is one little catch… that is the sparkler is lit by fire and where there is fire, there is always a bit of smoke. The goal is that it is a negligible amount of smoke. Just as you see smoke rising from a candle flame, you will also see a tiny amount of smoke arising from a wedding sparkler.
I simply describe a sparkler as one of the most beautiful and inexpensive touches you can add to your wedding day that the bride and groom will enjoy as well as the wedding guests. A wedding sparkler is really the perfect addition to a wedding. A yes, you can find a smokeless wedding sparkler if you are willing to be realistic about the actual word smokeless.
I did a bit of research before I started this wedding sparkler company. I wanted to know what was the best sparkler on the market that would produce the most amazing moment and photos in the end for that perfect wedding exit or sendoff. I tried some of our colored sparklers, thinking that perhaps we could customize them for a desired effect. Sadly those sparkler were not suitable for weddings and burned more like a torch instead of with the pretty wide sparkle effect I was hoping to achieve with wedding sparklers. Also I was hoping for a long wedding sparkler and the colored sparklers were only 10 inches long with a burn time of only 45 seconds. I then decided to try the morning glory sparklers. The one immediate negative I saw about those sparklers is that they were not suitable for weddings because of their dominate magenta color handle and paper wrappings. While I actually enjoy the color magenta, I simply do not want it in sparklers for weddings. They are also made of paper and wood – the exact opposite of what you want to produce a smokeless wedding sparkler.
That left me with the wire sparklers that have been made for hundreds of years, by hand, in China. These sparklers are an easy choice for weddings because they come in a variety of sizes meaning a variety of price points and burn times. I also understood that people do not order sparklers for weddings every day and that it is complicated to order a product that you do not fully understand. That left me with the wedding sparkler guarantee. I decided that someone could return sparklers at any time (we have had people return wedding sparklers 2 years later), for any reason (obvious reasons are rain, changed minds, someone else already bought sparklers) and even if every single sparkler had been used. Now the last had my support team a little worried. They were sure people were going to find some reason to return these wedding sparklers. Maybe they will say the sparklers were not long lasting enough, that there was smoke, that they were silver in color, not gold like the box, that they wished they were gold in color, not silver. But I can tell you that after 15 years, not a single person has asked to receive the wedding sparkler guarantee once. That would include any amount of smoke brides see in their wedding photos months after. Not a single wedding sparkler refund requested.
So when I describe our wedding sparklers as smokeless wedding sparklers, I mean that they emit very little smoke. That the smoke is not even something anyone would notice because who does not love sparklers at weddings! So simply do not worry about this smoke issue one more second. And also, when you order a box of sparklers, try a few! I want to make sure you are completely happy! If you are not, simply send an email asking for the wedding sparklers guarantee and I will personally get in contact with you about a refund. Sometimes I even say keep the sparklers and pass it along – if I am having an exceptionally good day. While these amazing smokeless sparklers may be for you, they also just might brighten someone else’s day.
