Less than 125 guests
Plan on one sparkler per guest if you are using 36 inch sparklers or 20 inch sparklers. Do not use 10 inch sparklers for wedding send-offs. 

More than 125 guests
Plan on one 36 inch sparkler per guest or two 20 inch sparklers. That way, guests can light their second 20 inch sparkler if their first one goes out before the bride and groom can get through the send-off line. 

Looking for tips on the best sparkler send-off?

Sparklers do not expire and can be stored safely for many years. Store sparklers away from moisture for the longest shelf life and best sparkle when you do light them.

Sparklers light best off other sparklers. Alternatively, a butane torch lighter is a quick, safe option. We recommend lighting one or two sparklers with a lighter and then using those sparklers to light the rest. Every order from Utah Sparklers includes a safety and lighting tip sheet.

Each State may have different laws concerning fireworks and the use of sparklers. In addition to state laws, each city has its own set of rules regarding sparkler and firework usage. We recommended you check with your state, city, and venue before ordering to ensure sparklers are permitted.

Unfortunately,we can not accept any returned products,so please be certain before you buy. Our products are very versatile and can be stored safely and used for many different occasions or events, including birthdays, Independence Day, New Year’s celebrations, and any other occasion where you want to add some sparkle.

There are 3 types of sparklers on the market—Bamboo sparklers or “morning glory” sparklers, cool burning sparklers, and metal-core or “smokeless” sparklers. 

Morning glory sparklers are made from wood and “cool burning” sparklers are made from paper. Both, when burned, create a fire hazard and produce large burning embers. You definitely don’t want embers falling all around, burning holes in dresses, suits, and veils. These sparklers also produce lots of smoke which can not only ruin photos and obscure the room but is irritating to guests’ eyes and noses. 

We neither sell nor recommend these troublesome sparklers!

Utah Sparklers are made by dipping metal rods into a mixture of chemicals, an Oxidizer, and a binder. As it burns, this coating gives off bright sparks but doesn’t create lots of smoke or dangerous embers. After the sparkler has gone out, you’re left with just the metal rod and no mess or wreckage. Our sparklers are sure to create the most magical, smoke-free pictures and the brightest memories.

  • First, check with your venue or planner to ensure sparklers are allowed for the send-off.  
  • Next, buy Utah Sparklers! All our wedding send-off sparklers are made to be used outdoors.
  • Choose the right time for your send-off. The darker the environment, the better your pictures will turn out.  
  • Put someone in charge of lighting sparklers and collecting used ones. Our sparklers have easy light tips, but keep in mind that sparklers light best with other sparklers. Once you get a few sparklers lit, you can use that one to light others.
  • Walk, don’t run, down the send-off line, and pause at least once for a cute, sparkler-framed kiss.
