Depending on the neighborhood, and the size of the property, you might consider having fireworks at the wedding! It’s not as expensive as you might think. A fireworks show of three to five minutes in length is all that you really need, and that might cost a few thousand dollars. If your budget permits, it is a fun and exciting addition to any wedding. Always hire an experienced fireworks professional and make sure that your contract requires them to obtain all of the proper permitting. Be certain that the fireworks are scheduled for a time it will be completely dark, and that your guests have easy access to view them. And try to keep it a surprise!
