I purchased enough for each guest to have 2.

I will have them in vases by the exit that say "let sparks fly for the bride and groom - sparkler exit a11 pm" & also get some matches made with our name & date to put on the table as well.

I will have the dj make an announcement & have my planner make sure that everyone knows what is happening and is ready for the grand finale.
