Steps for Success!

1. Make sure you are buying metal sparklers like these (they even have shaped ones!) : https://www.superiorcelebrations.com/category/sparklers.html 

2. Make sure you read the length and burn time on the sparklers, they have 36" length with a 4 minute burn time, and a smaller 20" length with a 2 minute burn time.... decide how long you are walking and how many guests will be lighting them up! 

3. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get everyone set up, lit up, and positioned for you and your photographer to go go go! :) 

Remember to have fun, and at least with a few of these tips you have a better chance at getting that dream night wedding shot! For more inspiration take a look at this inspiration board from Style Me Pretty
