Wedding Sparklers: Giving Rice A Rest And Opting For More Exciting Options
Messing up a newly wed’s expensive attire with rice grains as they make their grand exit is definitely out of fashion. Gone are the days when guests lined up to splatter the bride and groom with rice as they walked out of the chapel. It seems humans have finally realized rice is best left to where it is much needed, inside a pot or in a rice maker. Not even birds love raw rice anymore. It gives them indigestion. So out goes rice showers in weddings and in comes fancy colored sparkles with plenty of options to light up your grand exit after the nuptial rites and celebrations are done.
Sparklers are increasingly becoming the trend even in most traditional wedding settings. This is probably because sparklers come in a wide range of designs, materials, and effects. If you have checked the wedding accessories market lately, you’ll have noticed that manufacturers have added colored sparklers for weddings in their inventories. So besides being the “in” thing, what else makes sparklers a better alternative to traditional rice grains?
For a start, sparklers add joy and excitement to the occasion. They are quite popular among the old and young alike. They can be used in almost every event; with the solemn exception of funerals, although it has been claimed sparklers have become a big hit in Hindu cremation ceremonies. Sparklers are inexpensive and can be bought both in online and offline stores. If you are planning a wedding, sparklers are a must-have item. Let rice simmer peacefully in the kitchens.
In a wedding, sparklers are great for enhancing the newlyweds’ first dance, and in fact make the dollar dance an unforgettable event. Sparkler-waving guests dancing all around make the wedding jig a memorable experience. Sparklers can also be placed on top of the wedding cake and lit when the wedding is being cut for a more excitingly picturesque moment. You can even opt to go green despite being dressed in white and use eco-friendly confetti poppers for weddings, instead of rice and similar seeds. Confetti poppers are stylish and biodegradable. They come filled with white tissue paper confetti that explodes into the air safely once a spring loaded trigger is activated.
You should however exercise extreme caution when using sparklers whether you are holding them from one end of a bamboo stick or from a steel wire. They burn extremely hot and can cause serious burns if not handled properly. They should only be used outdoors under the right conditions. Do not ever allow a burning sparkler to come into contact with your clothes or skin. Make sure you buy them from reputable outlets to avoid ending up with defective products that won’t even light up. Most people prefer to buy the best sparklers in bulk so they can save some for other events such as birthdays and holidays. A sparkler burning from one end of a bamboo stick or even a steel wire and emitting silver or gold sparkles is way better than showering a newlywed couple with rice or similar grains.
