If you ask me, every celebration is improved with the inclusion of sparklers. Being so cheap and readily available, they’re a great last-minute addition to your wedding day schedule.

Here’s how to make them wedding-worthy:

  • Download the free printable sparkler tags
  • Print onto cardstock (I used one with a linen texture)
  • Trim to size, cut slits and round corners with a corner punch
  • Assemble
  • Party!

Such a magical (and photogenic!) newlywed send-off from your reception.

Have a safe and happy Easter, everyone!
