I am looking at ideas for our send-off after the reception. Our reception will end around 6:00pm, it won't be dark then (so probably no sparklers).
Do you do a send-off? Do you play a special exit-song? What are you doing for the send-off? How is it typically announced/organized?
I have never been to an American wedding which makes the planning a bit more challenging. In my home country we don't have send-offs, so I have never seen it - just seen pictures (pretty!) and heard about it and since we have to end so early, I think it would be fun. (Where I come from the party just goes on and on and on and the couple is among the last to leave, usually some time between 2am and 4am - while I would love that, that doesn't work with our venue/budget/crowded).
