So, before you start handing out sparklers and lighters to all your guests, there are some things you need to know to keep everyone safe.

Before lighting a sparkler, start looking around. If there are children about that are too young to participate, make sure there is an adult to keep an eye on them or give them a quick education with the demonstration. Let them know that they are fun and pretty but can also cause a burn.

If you had children involved in your celebration choose longer, 36″ sparklers as they are safer. Typically these larger sparklers have a longer, safer handle. Always have an adult light the sparklers. Never give children matches or lighters!

At a wedding reception the Best Man and the Maid of Honor should coordinate a wedding sparkler send off. Pay attention and take care if you are wearing loose fitting clothing, a dress or skirt, especially while using wedding sparklers, since you’re likely to be in your Sunday best!

Hair catches fire almost immediately, so make sure that you do not take any additional risks. Individuals with long hair should tie their tresses back securely before lighting a sparkler.

Keep a source of water nearby, just in case.

Keep a bucket of water or sand beside you to turn off the sparkler completely. You must not throw it away in a corner unless you are sure it has gone off completely. Dip the stick in the container for 5-10 seconds after you think it is used up and then throw it away.

When you are finished, pick up all the wooden and wire handles. Make sure no children will find any unlit firecracker or sparkler when you are not around.

Wedding sparklers are great fun for people of all ages. Just remember to supervise young children and use the proper type of sparkler in the proper setting. Be safe and have fun.
