I have very happy memories of my dad lighting sparklers for us kids as children. They were the most beautiful thing to me, but I was also terrified of them in all there fizzing and unpredictability. You know… they give you the kind of fear that you can’t help but want more of.
Photos like the one above inspired me to have a sparkler send-off at our wedding. Unfortunately the NZ government had to rain on my parade. New laws have banned sparklers from being sold by themselves, they must be sold in packs with other fireworks. Understandably, NZ has always enforced strict rules for when and how fireworks can be sold and used. But still.
Oh, well. It was a nice dream while it lasted. The one upside- I’m forced to not add yet another DIY project to my formidable list. The set-up below is nice though, yes?
Have you had to let go of one of your mini-wedding dreams because it just isn’t practical or your venue doesn’t allow for it?
