3 Epic Wedding Send Off Ideas

Smoke Bombs

Pinterest tipped smoke bombs as a massive trend for 2019 and we couldn’t agree more! They popped up in lots of our real weddings and we’re sure we’re going to be seeing plenty more of them in 2020 too. These fun, colourful clouds are the perfect backdrop for wedding pics. Available in lots of colours, you can opt for the palette to suit your theme. Opt for a pink for a touch of romance, the Irish flag colours for a nod to your heritage, blue for something blue or a rainbow of colours!

If you’re looking to up the romance and end the evening in a gorgeous haze of light, sparklers are an amazing choice. Guests will have so much fun twirling about with them and you can do some cute things with them too. We love the idea of spelling out ‘Love’ or your wedding date, and they look awesome when guests create an arch or pathway with them or surround the happy couple for the first dance.

Fireworks are another fitting finale! Make a seriously romantic statement with a bit of a show later in the evening. They’ll light up the night sky, providing some serious entertainment and plenty of photo ops too. If you’re looking to arrange a firework spectacle in Ireland, Nationwide Fireworks who cover the whole of the country can do this for you. Pat and his team will do their utmost to design a display best suited to your budget – enquire here. Here’s what one happy couple had to say: “BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT – can’t say anything other than brilliant – how special did we feel with a fireworks display just for us? We had kept it as a surprise for our guests so they were totally gobsmacked and it was the perfect finish to a perfect day. Thanks a million guys!” – Emma & Jay
