Summer and outdoor weddings beg for a little sparkle and shine. Making a romantic, sparkler send-off a must-have photo op for brides and grooms. After all, who doesn’t love a glamorous, dramatic send-off? In three easy steps, create your very own sparkler send-off for guests to light your way as you leave your wedding reception.
Step 1: Gather your supplies. Cut your ribbon and prep your matchbooks with a single hole punch. (Providing each guest with a book of matches is way easier than trying to pass a few lighters around a group of 100+ people.)
Step 2: Tie sparklers (we used groups of three) to your matches using your pre-cut ribbon. Place into your bucket or tray.
Step 3: Write your send-off sign (If you have terrible hand-writing like me, simply print your own). Insert into frame and voila.
