Please reference the above chart to find the perfect size sparklers for your wedding. You can’t go wrong with any size sparkler for your wedding, but generally speaking, the #10 sparklers are great party favors for your guests.

Frequently Asked Questions

The biggest difference between wedding sparklers and regular sparklers is length. The longer the sparkler, the longer the burn time. So, wedding sparklers are typically longer to account for the time it takes to execute an effective wedding exit.  

The other main difference between these sparklers is that wedding sparklers offer minimal smoke to account for pictures. Meanwhile, regular wood sparklers create a ton of smoke, making clear pictures difficult to capture.

#10 Gold Sparklers

10 inches in length, our #10 gold sparklers emit a rich, golden sparkling effect that’ll leave you and your guests in awe. All our sparklers have metal wires and produce a minimum amount of smoke, making for magnificent wedding photos.

#20 Gold Sparklers

Our most popular sparkler for weddings – #20 gold is 18 inches in length and is available in packs of eight per sleeve. This product is specifically designed for weddings and memorable celebrations, either displayed or handed out as a party favor to your guests.

#36 Gold Sparklers

Available in six sparklers per sleeve, the #36 gold sparkler is our longest sparkler, at 35 inches in length, making it 18 inches longer than the #20 gold. With an average of three minutes of burn time, it allows your wedding photographer to capture many pictures of your grand exit and everyone involved.

Heart Shaped Sparklers

Our heart-shaped sparklers are perfect for that romantic wedding, adding an extra shimmer to your special day. They are 12 inches long and about four inches wide. This size means they can either be displayed as decorations in the center of tables or handed out to guests.

While most people know what wedding exits are, they go by many names, which can get confusing. To clarify, send-off lines, grand exits and farewell lines are all the same things.  

In movies, these exits are oftentimes extravagant – doves, music, and a “just married” sign on the back of the vehicle driving away. The reality is that, with wedding sparklers, your exit can be elegant, simple and memorable. Also, with the additional lighting provided by lit sparklers, your pictures and videos will come out even better. 

Because wedding sparklers come in a variety of sizes and burn times, you’ll have to consider the size of your wedding. For example, if you are having a smaller, intimate wedding, you could likely go with #10 Gold Wedding Sparklers, which are just under 10 inches long and have a burn time of 35 seconds. 

However, if you’re having a larger wedding, you may want to consider #36 Gold Wedding Sparklers, which are much larger at 35 inches and provide nearly three minutes of light. 

#10 Gold: 35 Seconds

Heart Shaped Sparklers: 60 Seconds

#20 Gold: 90 Seconds

#36 Gold: 180 Seconds

When it comes to the number of sparklers you should buy for your wedding, it comes down to your guest list. You want to make sure that each guest will be able to participate in the exit. However, you don’t want to go overboard and have hundreds of sparklers left over.  

We recommend purchasing a sparkler for each of your guests as well as a pack or two for back up. This ensures that everyone can participate, while you don’t have to break the bank. 

It is generally not recommended to use sparklers indoors, but there are some exceptions such as cake topper sparklers. Whether you plan to use sparklers indoors or outdoors, your first priority should be to contact the venue and confirm that wedding sparklers are allowed on the property. There are also state laws and local restrictions that you’ll need to comply with. 

An ideal spot for the perfect wedding exit is in an open space, particularly a parking lot or nearby field. However, you should also keep an eye open on the weather. Inclement conditions can change the plans of your location. 

Executing a safe and successful wedding sparkler exit takes planning and coordination, because time is of the essence once the first sparkler is lit. 

To light the sparklers at your wedding, we recommend providing butane and grill lighters to every few guests along the exit line. This allows the initial lighting to go quick and smooth, because the rest of your guests can touch their sparklers together to pass off the light. The important part is that all sparklers are lit at the same time. 

However, Direct Sparklers offers an even easier solution. We offer strike-to-light sparklers, which can eliminate the need for lighters or matches. With a strike pad on the packaging, this alternative creates a safe, efficient option for your wedding exit.  

Prior to the exit, the wedding planner should line the guests up into rows, forming an aisle. However, for safety reasons, make sure there is space between each guest to eliminate the possibility of someone getting burned.  

Once sparklers are lit, guests should grip the sparkler upright and hold it away from their face, body and clothing. It’s also essential that the sparklers are away from any flammable materials, such as alcohol. 

Once your wedding exit goes smoothly, you should have a wedding sparkler disposal plan in place. Even if the sparklers have burned out, the sparkler wire is going to be extremely hot for a while, so it’s important to safely dispose of them. 

In a centralized spot, we suggest placing at least two buckets of sand or water where guests can drop their sparklers. Not only does this simplify the cleanup process, but it also ensures the wedding sparklers are safely removed. 

As always, safety first! Before purchasing sparklers, reference state laws and local restrictions, as well as your wedding venue to ensure you’re able to use these products. And while our sparklers are safe for everyone to enjoy, we do recommend children under the age of 12 have an adult present at all times when using sparklers.
