Can’t use sparklers at your wedding? Alternative wedding send-off ideas

Sparklers have become one of the most popular ways to do a grand exit! The sparkler, the romance, the dash towards the getaway car. It’s everything dreams are made of! However, there are quite a few reasons why couples must look for wedding exit sparkler alternatives. Some wedding venues don’t allow the use of sparklers, there may be a burn ban locally (or some states don’t allow the use of sparklers at all). No matter what the reason is that you’re looking alternative wedding send-off ideas, there are still plenty of ways to have your guests send you off in style. Here are some options we love!

1. Lavender

This one is one of my favorites since it’s biodegradable and it closely mirrors confetti on camera. It smells heavenly too 😉 Just make sure your friends and family know not to throw the confetti at you – they need to throw it over you, or else it’s easy to get in your eye! BUY IT HERE

    My daughter is getting married in two months and we have been looking for fun ways to send her and my future son-in-law off. Using something that is biodegradable like lavender seems like a great alternative to confetti. We’ve may also rent a limo for them so they can have an extra special send off.
