Question about wedding exit send offs?

Sarah, on June 4, 2023 at 10:17 AM Posted in Wedding Reception 0 3
Hey guys!

My fiancé and I are getting married at a church and then the reception is at a different location. We were planning on having bubbles for everyone when we exit the church for a picture, but my friend also bought us these adorable tags for a sparkler send off.
Obviously, when we will leave the church will be during the day and so I’m not sure sparklers would look right for the day time. Would it be weird to have a bubble send off when we exit the church into the limo, and another send off with sparklers 30 min before the reception ends at night?
I wasn’t sure if this was too much. Maybe I’m overthinking.. Smiley smile
Any input it appreciated!

    I don't think it's too much. I do think if you have the second send off 30 minutes before the end of the reception that your guests will leave as they will likely believe that's the actual end of the reception so you'd be basically losing the last half hour of the reception that you paid for.

    You can do a staged exit at your reception after it gets dark. This is common since a lot of people don’t book their photographer through the whole reception, so that way you can get your photos in before they leave. It’s not you actual exit, hence why it’s staged.

    You could do the bubble “send off” with all your guests when you leave the church. Then, yo our photographer could discreetly pull you and your wedding party when it gets dark and do a quick staged sparkler “send off” with them. That would save you having to round everybody up and get them outside for a second send off photo, and wouldn’t affect the party atmosphere of your reception.
