Alternative to Sparkler Exit?

So we're inviting 278 guests and I originally wanted to do a sparkler exit. The venue allows it as long as it's outside (we would be). However, I've decided against doing that because of logistics. I just wasn't sure how many people would be there at the end and then how hard it would be to light 50+ sparklers at the same time!

So I was thinking of having the bridal party come outside with us halfway through the reception and just having them have sparklers and then me and my FH just do some sparkler shots alone after a couple of us surrounded by our bridal party. Trying to get some opinions on this idea!

    We had glow sticks - the pictures turned out wonderfully and one of the kids gathered them up and had a great time with them.

    I had originally thought sparklers, but had concerns about ending up with little holes in my dress - probably wouldn't have happened, but no reason to worry.

    Thanks! I'm hoping that it's logistically easier! We would do bubbles, but my dress is silk and it would stain the material!

    I had considered that, but I guess the only way to prevent it is to be super careful LOL Glow sticks sound like a fun idea!

    I wanted to do bubbles, but it will be dark by the time we exit, so I'm not sure anyone will be able to see them. Have to think about this some more. Maybe glow sticks, then.

    Following becuase I am having the same issue! I wanted to have a sparkler exit but only have my photographer for 8 hours, so she will most likely be gone by the time the partry ends. But I already bought my sparklers! haha The Bridal Party idea is a good one, I just don't know if after partying for a few hours they will want to come back out and regroup for the picture
