Weddings & Fireworks!

// Published by Sam, Editor - October 30, 2014

Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night is nearly upon us and you can’t beat a stunning fireworks display, but how about one on your wedding day? It can be a great way to kick off your evening reception and party, and also makes for some great wedding photos with a very colourful back drop. If there are kids at your wedding then this is also great and will wow your guests.

So before you start researching firework companies to light up the skies at your wedding here are our top tips and considerations.

Your Venue
First off it is good to check that your venue allow firework displays, if they do then they may also have a company they recommend that has done many displays at your venue. If they don’t allow fireworks then you could look at hiring land from nearby or a neighbour depending on the venue and location to fire the display from.

If there are noise restrictions in place or perhaps you like the light but not so keen on the noise then you can also get quieter displays that are designing for such instances.

How much should you budget?
A basic display can cost between £125-£200 per minute as a guide, so a 5-6 minute firework display would cost £600 – £1200. This cost will vary depending on the fireworks used and the type of display you want, as well as the number of firing points used.

Other things to note:
By law fireworks cannot be used after 11pm with certain exceptions such as New Year’s Eve, so if you were thinking of having it at the end of the night then it maybe best to look at having it at the start of the evening.

Firework companies should be able to fire in most weathers so if rain is a concern then you need not worry, however you may want to provide some brollies!
