First comes love, then comes marriage and then comes fireworks – at your wedding that is! Having a fireworks display at your nuptials as an end-of-the-night sendoff or a surprise to your guests is the perfect way to end a fairytale day. While a fireworks show might sound a bit extravagant, it can actually be relatively affordable and surprisingly easy to coordinate if you work with a professional company.
Here are some important considerations for wedding planning when fireworks are part of your big day:
Checking with your venue to confirm the location allows fireworks is always the first step. Many venues have the space and may even have areas that make beautiful accent points during the display such as fountains, ponds or lush plantings. Keep in mind that depending on the site you choose, there might be a cleanup fee involved so it is key to connect with your event planner. In addition, there are a number of permits that are needed for a fireworks display, however, if you work with Atlas PyroVision we take care of all the paperwork so you don’t have to.
Deciding on a budget is key. The amount of money you want to spend on your wedding day fireworks display will dictate its duration and level of extravagance. A display can cost anywhere from $3,500 to upwards of $15,000. The less expensive displays tend to run around five to six minutes, while the pricier ones are much longer at 10 to 12 minutes.
The fine details are important and it’s no different with a fireworks display. Deciding on the little things, including colors, songs that you might want playing in-sync with the show and if you desire special patterns (heart shells are very popular, for example) is an extremely personal and fun part of the process. Again, working with a professional who can guide you during the decision-making process is very helpful.
