Who doesn't love a good sparkler picture?? Are you still into this exit trend, or has it become too popular?

Do you think sparkler send offs are overrated or underrated?

    I think they're really popular so I guess overrated, however, I LOVE the photos of them and we are doing one. I think even though it's super popular, everyone's pictures look different and I never get sick of seeing them so even though I think it's being a little overdone, I still love it.

    Somewhat overrated. I feel like they are done a lot. They are very pretty pics, but every time I see one done I'm like oh please don't catch the dress on fire..

    They look really great in pictures but the set up is painstaking. Everyone has to stand in a line for 20 minutes waving around a 2 foot eye poker. Then light them on fire and run through an arch of 2000+ degree sparks with loads of hairspray in my hair, no thanks.

    I like the way it looks. But a lot of venues won't let you have them anymore, so as quickly as the trend started, I fear it will end.

    Underrated. I think the pictures are so fun and I could just imagine feeling like a rock star walking through them.

    A little overrated. Maybe I just don't trust people with fire and alcohol LOL!

    Underrated but expensive if you’re having a big wedding.

    Overrated. The set up is a pain to plan to try and gather everyone at the end of the night.

    I think it looks pretty but the last thing I want over my head is sparking fire.

    It is cute, but too many people do it. I want to do something unique

    They're very popular, but I still think they're underrated! I love the way they look in pictures. We're doing a sparkler sendoff. Smiley smile

    I wish we could do it but the venue says no so it's probably best we don't lol I think for a photo op it's great! It does seem like another thing to have to coordinate though.

    I'm gonna say overrated though this is more of a personal preference thing. I love the pictures I'll admit but it is a bit of an awkward shuffle to get the guests to partake and then have them go back into the venue and so on. I also think it's a bit overdone. I say do what works for you!

    Pretty but overdone.
    Also, I'm staying to help clean up.
    Do I do a sparkler send off and come back?
    I also dont plan on my photographer staying til the almost end.
    Too many logistical problems for me.
