Wedding Fireworks – a good idea?
Last night’s New Years Eve firework display in Sydney Harbour included more than £5,000,000 of fireworks ($6.8 million) in a display watched via TV from around the world.
Assuming you don’t have unlimited funds and access to several barges, bridges and tall buildings to fire fireworks from, a wedding display is going to be far more modest, but how modest can you go without losing the wow factor?
- Check that your venue doesn’t have restrictions on fireworks. Any venue in a built up area is unlikely to allow fireworks after 10 pm.
- Considering using “silent fireworks” in a venue with sound restrictions? For most people, the sound effects are as important as the light show.
- Get creative. Experienced firework companies can set a simple, inexpensive display to music to add an extra dimension, and “pad out” the display.
- If you are aiming for a DIY display go for a self contained firework “cake”. They cost around £200 and have just one fuse triggering a short but effective display.
Don’t forget, if you are planning a DIY display you will need to clear it with your venue first and someone needs to stay sober to fire it.
