Wedding Sparkler Send-Off
When it comes to send-offs, by far, the most popular send-off for the weddings we do in the Austin and Central Texas area is the sparkler send-off. It looks GREAT in photos and is easy to do! You simply need to buy sparklers, bring a way to light them, and a bucket with water! Buying sparklers isn't too hard, either. There are plenty of websites that have them for sale. The prices can really vary, depending on the seller and on the size you need. We recommend 36 inch sparklers, since they last about 3-4 minutes, each. 20 inch sparklers are okay, but they only last 1-2 minutes. You'll need longer time, since you have to light everyone's sparkler, before the couple walks through!
The site we use to purchase our sparklers, is "Wedding Day Sparklers. They have the best prices and great products. Find your sparklers, today, by visiting wedding day sparklers.
Wedding Bubble Send-Off
Bubble send-offs also look great for pictures! Keep in mind, however, that the lighting has to be bright, so the bubbles show up well in the photos. If you want to do a bubble send-off, try scheduling a "mock send-off" early. You can have all your guests line up, early in the evening (just before sunset photos is a great time) and take send-off photos! They'll look great and all your guests will be in the photo. Then, you can go right back inside and party! :)
Neon Glow Sticks Send-Off
If you don't like the idea of actual fire or if the venue does not allow sparklers, glow sticks are a great alternative! They look great in pictures, too! These can work in day or night settings and you simply need to have your guests grab one on their way out. No time wasted, waiting for everyone to light their sparklers. Keep in mind many of your guests may be "tipsy" so lighting sparklers can often take longer than it should! :)
Other more environmentally friendly send offs are great too! Bird seed send-offs, which have to be done in brighter settings, unless the photographer has the appropriate lighting, which they should. Another alternative is leaves! In the fall, the various leave colors look amazing in photos!
These are the most popular send-off ideas that we commonly see in the Austin and central Texas area. There are plenty more ideas, of course. Thanks for reading!
