Sparklers

Leave your wedding with a grand sparkler exit. Light up the night with these light sticks that make for beautiful photos. Want to avoid flame? Glow sticks are an equally colorful, more child-friendly alternative and a great option for venues who want to avoid open flames.

Fireworks

Send guests home with a memorable show. If fireworks are allowed at your venue, shoot them off at the end of the night (but not too late if there are neighbors nearby or sound curfews). With so many colors and designs to choose from these fiery pops are sure to wow your friends and family for a wedding they’ll never forget.
