If you’re seeing this blog post, I am assuming you’re interested in a sparkler exit at your wedding (or some sort of alternative)! Look no further, because there are options for day or night you can use. Everything doesn’t have to be bubbles and sparklers, just remember to check with your venue to see what you’re allowed to do.
An exit is usually a great photo op right after a couple is walking down the aisle after being pronounced, when a couple is leaving the church and guests are standing outside waiting, and towards the end of the night or at the very end of the night when the couple is leaving. I typically recommend for outdoor ceremonies for the couple to kiss and when walking down the aisle, have the guests use the required item.
Have the officiant announce for everyone to get ready with (exit item chosen) and that way they remember to use them! When an officiant does not announce it, guests get caught up in the romance and forget to get everything ready. What happens is a few people remember and then everyone starts to remember as the wedding party and family are walking back down the aisle for the recessional – making great photo ops for them and just a meh one for you.
Exit ideas for wedding ceremonies:
- Ribbon wands
- Rose petals
- Baby’s breath
- Paper airplanes
- Biodegradable confetti
- Champagne pops (YAS)
Here’s a photo of an exit using glow sticks – this required some skill but was awesome!
