There are many ways to make a celebration more magical. One of them is to celebrate your wedding with fireworks. Fireworks come in all shapes and sizes, from large to small. In other words, fireworks can be whatever you want them to be. However, there are some things you need to consider if you're planning fireworks for a wedding, which is what we're going to discuss in this article.
Take the season into account
Remember that night falls very early in winter—much earlier than in summer. This means that you can set off fireworks earlier in winter. This is ideal if there are going to be children at the wedding, as they'll also be able to enjoy the colourful show.
If you're planning on holding your wedding in summer, you'll have to wait until it gets dark—at around 10 p.m.—before setting off the fireworks. By that time, the dancing will be in full swing and the champagne will be flowing like a river, which is why it's important to designate someone to organise the guests to watch the fireworks.
On the other hand, rain and bad weather are more likely in autumn and winter. Since many fireworks depend on weather conditions, you can't be completely certain that everything will go according to plan or that you'll even manage to set off your fireworks.
Check the wedding venue
The size of the available area near the venue is very important to the success of your wedding fireworks display. Furthermore, you will need to ask the management of the venue whether they allow fireworks at their establishment or not.
You don't want to be disappointed by planning a gorgeous fireworks display only to discover that you can't set fireworks off at the venue. It's best to discuss this matter with the management of the venue in advance before ordering any fireworks.
Keep your photographer informed
Once you've obtained permission from the management of the venue and found a pyrotechnics company to bring your evening plans to life, you'll certainly want to tell your guests. Just remember to tell your photographer too.
Not all photographers stay after the first dance, so make sure to check in advance which services you've bought. If you want shots of the fireworks display, discuss adding the show to your package.
A full-scale fireworks display at your wedding is the perfect opportunity to get incredible group photos. You can also take romantic portrait photos, arrange a stunning photoshoot with sparklers and bring all your guests together for enchanting joint photos. Have them stand around you and draw letters during long-exposure shots, or simply have fun and act natural for more candid photos.
