Most people think its just for the glam and the beauty of the moment, but actually tradition of scaring evil spirits from bride & groom has always found a way to be a great excuse for a lot of things involved in weddings.

LIGHTING UP THE SKY
Fireworks were invented in China in the seventh century to scare away evil spirits, as a natural extension of one of the Four Great Inventions of ancient China, gunpowder. Such important events and festivities as Chinese New Year and the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival were and still are times when fireworks are guaranteed sights. China is the largest manufacturer and exporter of fireworks in the world.
Fireworks were first introduced in the United States in the early 1500s. Fireworks were used in the military and also as a major entertainment show during events. There was such an overwhelming response to fireworks, that factories were started everywhere in America, giving rise to more employment opportunities.
So how did they end up in weddings?
Ask your Destination Wedding Planner about pyrotechnics experts in the area, they will be able to tell you if the wedding venue that you have chosen or your reception site is appropriate for a fireworks display.
Considerations like distance, city ordinances and the conditions of your site all need to be taken into account. If you are set on making sure that you can have fireworks at your wedding, remember to speak with the pyrotechnics expert before you start planning the wedding venue.
Not all venues are going to be appropriate when you are thinking about setting off fireworks. Fire codes and city regulations are two key things for you to investigate.
For venues that do not allow fireworks we have COLD PHYROTECHNY. This are the shots of light that come from the ground and look like a fire shower.
