How to include glow sticks at your wedding

1. Swap confetti for Glow Sticks

The perfect confetti toss alternative, a glow stick send-off. As you and your partner make your exit after the ceremony, guests can wave glow sticks, creating a mesmerizing tunnel of light.

This is particularly stunning for evening or nighttime weddings. If indoors though you can have the lights dimmed.

2. Glow stick Dance Floor

Create a lively dance floor atmosphere by handing out glow sticks to your guests during the reception.

As the music gets going, the dance floor will come alive with colourful lights, making for incredible photos and unforgettable memories.

3. Glow Stick Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with a backdrop that features hanging or arranged glow sticks.

Provide guests with glow sticks to hold, wear, or pose with for their pictures. The resulting photos will be dynamic and full of energy.

4. Glow Stick Favors

Give out glow sticks as wedding favours. You can bundle them with other small items or place them in individual containers for guests to take home.

Personalize the glow sticks with your names, wedding date, or a special message.

5. Glow Stick Bar

If you’re having a bar at your wedding, create a glow stick-themed drinks station. Serve cocktails in glasses with glow stick stirrers or attach glow sticks to the rim of the glasses for a fun twist.

6. Glow Stick Exit

For an evening reception, consider having a glow stick exit. Have guests form a pathway holding glow sticks as you and your partner exit the venue. The glowing lights will add a festive and ethereal touch to your departure.

7. Glow Stick Games

Plan some glow stick games for your guests to enjoy. From glow stick ring toss to glow stick limbo, these activities can keep everyone entertained throughout the celebration.

8. Glow Stick Cake Topper

Top your wedding cake with a large, illuminated glow stick. This unconventional cake topper can serve as a conversation starter and a unique decorative element.
