If you’ve been scouring Pinterest for wedding ideas, then you’re probably familiar with the classic sparkler send-off.
Over the last few years, these have become immensely popular and for a good reason. They’re adorable, and they make for fantastic wedding pics.
So, if you’re in need of some sparkler inspiration for your big day, you’re in the right place. Here are a few ideas that’ll hopefully get the ball rolling!
Wedding Sparklers – 9 Inch
If you’re looking for a unique wedding favor, you could perhaps give your wedding guests a sparkler. Not only is this an excellent talking point for your guests, but it’s also a fun hint for whats to come later in the evening.
In our experience, sparkers around nine inches long are a great size for displaying on tables. They add a splash of fun to your wedding decor without being too overbearing!
If you opt for a sparkler around this size, you can expect roughly 35 seconds of fabulous golden sparks. Unfortunately, this isn’t long enough for your send-off so make sure you have enough for each guest to have a few. This helps to avoid your guest’s sparklers burning out before you’ve walked through the archway!

Questions to consider before purchasing your sparklers
What Size Are They?
Always make sure you know how long the sparklers are before you buy them. That way you can buy appropriate decor to display them.
What’s Their Burn Time?
Make sure you know approximately how long the sparklers burn for. This will have a massive impact on how many sparklers you’ll need to buy.
If the burn time’s less than a minute, then your wedding guests will probably need more than one sparkler each. Consequently, you’ll need to buy double if not triple, the number of sparklers.
Are they smokeless?
If you can, always opt for smokeless sparklers. They make for way clearer wedding photos, plus you don’t want your wedding guests coughing and spluttering as you make your goodbyes!
What Colored Light Are They?
What colored light do you want flickering from the sparklers? The most popular choices are silver or gold. If you have a preference, you’ll need to do a bit of research before purchasing.
When Should I Buy My Sparklers?
We always recommend purchasing sparklers as soon as you’re able to because it limits the stress. You don’t want to be worrying about delivery times, on the run up to your big day. Especially, as sparklers usually have an exceptionally long shelf life (providing you can keep them away from dampness and water). So if you have somewhere safe to store them, go ahead!
