Sparkler exits are a really great way to add excitement to your night, but before you plan it consider this:
Invest in the large/long sparklers. These sparklers last longer and produce more light.
Plan to do it at least 2 times. Making sure we get the perfect shot during your sparkler parade means we may ask you to "do it again!" The first time through you'll be excited and may walk or run a little to fast. That's okay because we love to capture that excitement! Plus, if you do it again you could do something different like kiss or twirl, adding drama or whimsy to the image.
Don't wait until the end of the night. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but on average 75-80% of your guests will most likely be gone before the last song is played. With fewer guests to light your way, you will be disappointed with the final result.
Consider doing a sparkler entrance and be guaranteed a larger number of guest participation. But keep in mind this may be harder to do if you will be arriving to your reception venue while the sun is still up.
Call it a sparkler celebration. Worried your guests may think "um...this is weird" because you are doing your sparklers early in the evening. Change the name and call it a Sparkler Celebration instead. Let your guests help you celebrate your first dance or cake cutting by forming a tunnel of sparklers afterwards.

Talk to your reception venue. This is the most important piece of advice, other than don't burn your self! Ask your venue if this is okay and to give you the best possible locations. After all you don't want to catch anything on fire!
