If you want to have a Hollywood-style wedding or simply one that guests will remember for years to come, fireworks are the way to go. Wedding fireworks displays are becoming increasingly popular and have the ability to add excitement to your special night. By lighting up the sky, you can provide wedding-goers with exciting entertainment which can be enjoyed by the young and old alike.
While fireworks do add to the overall budget, they are no longer limited to the celebrations of the rich and famous. There are a variety of different options for a wide range of budgets. Finding the right type of display for the right price is as simple as making a phone call to a display company. Companies can be found quickly by referencing your local phone book or searching online. Often times, wedding planners may even have experience with contracting fireworks displays and be able to provide you with some ideas or promotional materials.
Once you have made the decision to incorporate a fireworks display into your wedding it is a good idea to have a preliminary budget in mind. This will provide a good starting point when dealing with a fireworks company sales rep. They will also need information such as the location of the event and what type of effects you have in mind. The sales rep will be able to explain the different options available for your given venue and in most cases give you an immediate quote.
Indoor and outdoor options exist and their available is dictated by your venue and budget. Indoor effects might include gerbs (fountains), waterfalls, and star mines. Outdoor effects include those previously mentioned as well as the large scale displays such as the ones seen on the 4th of July. While the large scale displays do require heftier budgets, the previously discussed options can provide an affordable yet beautiful effect. Small scale displays and indoor effects can be had starting out at around $ 1,500.
Don’t be afraid to shop around. Get quotes from small, medium, and large companies. Often times the smaller companies will be able to offer a better deal due to lower overhead costs. Just be sure to ask for a portfolio or list of references.
Understanding the different options which are available is important in achieving the desired effect. If you are interested in educating yourself on the different types of effects and the overall process then the Wedding Sparklers and Fireworks Guide is a good place to start.
