Before you organise your awe-inspiring sparkler moment, be sure to check with your wedding venue that it’s allowed. Some venues might not allow sparklers at weddings because of insurance or safety hazards. It’s best to opt for extra long sparklers so that they don’t fizz out too quickly, and make sure there are lots of matches to hand.
