20" or 36" Sparklers?

Hello,

I am trying to decide whether I should buy 20" sparklers or 36" sparklers. I was thinking about getting the 36" one but a friend of mine mentioned that it will be too long. But I'm also afraid the 20" ones will be too short.

Anyone did sparklers send off before? Which one you use?

Thank you!

    My photographer told me not to buy anything less than 36”. They burn down so fast. At my friends wedding they had to do the exit a few times to get good pictures.

    I did sparklers. They were very short we had to give everyone a second one

    We did the 20 inch ones and had no issues. I’ve disliked the 36 inch ones at weddings I’ve been to because I always have to stand around for another minute or two to wait until they burn out.

    We're doing 20 inch sparklers since I got them for a great price from another bride, but I originally wanted to go with the 36 inch ones!

    My fiancée tried sparklers when he asked me to marry him but by the time I got there they all burned out. I’d suggest the longer the better because they will last longer

    We’re trying to decide too. Our photographer was no help, she said either were fine.

    I think we did 24inch. Our venue didn’t allow the 36inch. We brought plenty extra in case anyone’s sparkler burned out too quickly.

    The longer the better, some people are scared to hold short sparklers, afraid they’ll burn their fingers.

    I haven’t executed my sparkler send off yet, but my wedding coordinator said to get the longest I could find, so I got 36”. It burns longer for photo ops.

    I would do the longer. Any short ones would make me nervous I'd burn my hand!
