Make It Memorable

Be daring and create a strong statement by using wedding sparklers to add some fun and excitement to your wedding or reception- or both! These beautiful hand-held sparklers can be used as centerpieces on the tables at your reception. They can even be used to adorn the cake, being lit right before it is cut, creating a breathtaking show of gentle fireworks. For your guests, make this day as special for them as it is for you by sending them home with beautiful sparklers as wedding favors. They can use them for a special night of their own, creating lasting and meaningful memories for everyone.

Light Up The Night

Nothing says romance like the soft glow of firelight. And what better way to incorporate that into your wedding than by stunning sparklers to light up the evening as you are photographed with your wedding party? Or better yet as you make your grand exit at the end of the night with the love of your life? Imagine taking off for your honeymoon under the golden glow of a thousand sparkles as they rain down. Set off as you walk by all of your adoring guests, ushering you into the new life of your dreams. Talk about creating memories!

How To Create A Spectacular 2021 Wedding

Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle!

This is your day to go all out, so don’t hold back your deepest desires! Weddings are supposed to be a real-life fairy tale, one that most women dream about since they were little girls. If you don’t use this day to fulfill your dreams, when will you? Extravagance is ok once in a while- and more than ok on your wedding day. Your guests expect it! Or at the very least are hoping for it. Make this a special event for all by following your dreams of how you want your wedding to be, and it is guaranteed to be just perfect.

One Last Thought…

Although sparklers and firelight will definitely enhance and transform the atmosphere at your wedding, nothing will replace the glow and sparkle that comes from you, the Bride. You are the centerpiece! The star of the show- don’t forget that! Consider everything and everyone else as supporting actors. They are all there to allow you to shine your best and brightest. Most of all, remember to have fun. This is, after all, your dream come true.

2021 weddings and the COVID-19 vaccine

The Impact Covid-19 Vaccine Will Have on Weddings

Here we go! We are into a new year and the Coronavirus is continuing. But for couples looking to say “I Do” in 2021, there is a glimmer of hope. Now that we have a “vaccine” can weddings honestly get back to normal? Are you wondering what impact the COVID-19 vaccine will have on weddings in 2021? Here are some things to think about.

With the arrival of the coronavirus vaccine, you may think that your 2021 wedding can be more normal than the 2020 weddings. Sure! The Coronavirus vaccine might just have us on a route to managing the virus better. But for weddings taking place in the first half of 2021, there are still going to be restrictions and safety measures needed. Sorry, we know that is not what you wanted to hear.

But! The good news is, there is hope and today we’re going to share some incredible ideas for you to make your 2021 wedding off-the-chain and totally unforgettable.

The COVID-19 Vaccine And Your 2021 Wedding

Ok, so here is the real truth on why the COVID-19 vaccine won’t mean your 2021 can be normal.

  1. The vaccine for COVID-19 was created at super warp speed.
  2. The rollout is not going as fast and smooth as expected
  3. Dr. Fauci says to get herd immunity close to 85% of the US population has to take the vaccine
  4. But many people just don’t want to take it
  5. There are a lot of side effects, many that are serious.
  6. You can still catch the virus even after being vaccinated
  7. You can still spread the virus to others after vaccination, even though you may not have symptoms
  8. The vaccine may not work on new strains (which are already in the US)

How to Have an Unforgettable Wedding in 2021

Add Unique Experiences for Extra Razzle & Dazzle

In 2021 weddings will be all about “experiences.” You can expect to see everything from playing games, interactive stations, and yes! even sparklers.

Our 36″ wedding sparklers are perfect to create this magical, and unforgettable wedding ceremony in 2021. Your guests will be amazed and your wedding photos will be incredible.

Self-Service Bars

No, we’re not talking about DIY full-service bars that will have your wedding guests totally overindulging (remember you are responsible for them). In 2021, one of the hottest wedding trends is having drink stations. This is absolutely great because it means that your wedding guests can social distance because everyone won’t be at one bar trying to get cocktails.

Set up wall-mounted champagne dispensers, beer taps, and maybe even a wine dispenser area. It is an interactive wedding experience that your guests will never forget.

New View on Gift Registry

Don’t get us wrong, in 2021 wedding couples will still love to receive and open gifts. But the most coveted wedding gift in 2021 will be good ol’ green cash. And why not? We know that many, many years ago it was thought of as taboo to give cash. But in today’s modern times, most couples live together before getting married so there are fewer “household items” needed. And let’s face it, many couples probably return a lot of their wedding gifts to get things they really need.

The 2021 wedding registry trends will include asking for cash, charity registries and having a honeymoon registry. And for those that have a “traditional wedding registry”, the gift items that will make it to the list are the super expensive stuff that they don’t want to splurge their money on.

Impact Covid-19 Vaccine Will Have on Weddings

The COVID-19 vaccine is not going to remove any level of danger when it comes to the Coronavirus, at least not for a while. Plan to still have hand sanitizing stations, ask that your wedding guests wear masks, have masks on hand for those that don’t bring theirs, and implement social distancing measures. Outdoor weddings will still reign supreme in 2021 because the fresh air helps to lower the chances of spreading the virus and it gives you more space to spread out.

Wedding sparklers and your wedding cake!

Wedding sparklers for wedding cakes are one of the most popular ways to incorporate sparklers into your wedding. Not only will your cake taste amazing but it will look amazing too. Your guests will ooh and ahhh as your wedding cake makes its way out. Candles are nice but if you’re looking for something to really WOW your guests and maybe less traditional, sparklers are the way to go!

What Type of Sparklers Should I use On My Wedding Cake?

The birthday cake sparklers (also known as bottle sparklers) would work well, they burn for 30-40 seconds, leaving time for the servers to light the sparklers and make a spectacular entrance. They are a low smoke sparkler and have a plastic point to place in the cake. Just as the name suggests, these can be used in your champagne or wine bottles as well.

The smaller party sparklers such as the #10 dessert sparklers would work as well.  They burn for about 35 seconds and are also considered a low smoke sparkler.

Wedding Sparklers for Wedding Cake

How Many Sparklers Do I Need?

We suggest using 4 wedding sparklers per cake. However, you may want to use more or less, depending on the size of your cake. But be careful! There can be too much of a good thing. Don’t overdo it with the wedding cake sparklers. Just a few sparklers will make for a flashy entrance.

Another great idea is placing a sparkler on each individual piece of cake. Let your guests in on the fun with their very own sparkly piece of cake!  Your guests may be inspired to use sparklers at their wedding or even birthday cakes too!

Let your baker know that you are planning on using sparklers on your wedding cake ahead of time.  This will allow them to decide on the perfect decorations for your cake.

Don’t forget to buy a few extra sparklers. Store the sparklers in a safe, dry place.  On your one year anniversary, put on a sparkler on the defrosted top tier of your wedding cake and relive all of the wedding night fun!

Make your wedding cake ceremony a real crowd-pleaser by adding beautiful wedding cake sparklers into the event. And don’t forget to take pictures! This will surely be a moment to remember.
