Charlotte Venues Are Banning Sparklers – What To Do?


Charlotte Wedding Venue back with more tips for planning your wedding: most Charlotte venues are banning sparklers due to liability reasons. This sparkler ban has forced many couples to replan. Not to worry, we have a great alternative,  the cold spark. Have you heard about cold sparks yet?  These babies are so cool, and they make for amazing first dance and send-off photos!

From our understanding, these machines work by heating granules of a special powder to create glowing sparks, before quickly cooling them to a safe temperature. The sparks keep their glow even when cold, to produce a safe and non-flammable special effect. We don’t get it, but we know a picture is worth a thousand words, so here:

Not too shabby, eh? 

The bright side of banning sparklers is not only are cold sparks brighter than traditional sparklers, they’re also safer (hello drunk people, this is for all of you), and doesn’t produce smoke.  That means you’ll have bright, bold, gorgeous send-off photos.

These are also safe enough to use inside, so if you really want to make your first dance together something extra special, these are totally for you!

In our experience, this is something DJs are able to offer in addition to their other lighting package add-ons.  Some venues such as Separk Mansion also offer these as an add-on option

Check with your vendor(s) to see if this is something you can add on.  You 100% won’t regret it!
