A brand new week, a lovely question from bride-to-be Jenna! She wants to know what the deal is with sparkler tags: do you really need sparkler tags for wedding send-offs, where to buy sparkler tags, and where you can get sparkler tags with matches. We’re also adding in our own: are sparkler tags and sparkler sleeves the same thing?
“Hi Emmaline Bride team! I need sparkler tags for my wedding reception (or do I really need them?) What are sparkler tags used for and do I really need to buy sparkler tags for wedding send-offs or can I just use the sparklers as-is? Also, do you have any ideas on where to get custom tags or where I can find sparkler tags with matches to go with them? Thanks!”
Great question, Jenna! I love sparkler send-offs. Always have, always will. But there is a difference between sparklers by themselves and sparkler tags. Mostly, it keeps guests’ hands in a lower position so they don’t burn themselves. And that, my friends, is always a good idea.
And to be honest, there’s a big difference in style when you hand over a pile of sparklers that are plain or you had out custom sparkler tags for wedding send-offs. They look pretty, pulled-together, and planned. The 3 P’s: always a great idea.
Also, to answer the question we added: sparkler tags are synonymous with sparkler sleeves, in case you’re looking for either. You can buy sparkler sleeves from here at For Your Party.
Your sparklers will look extra-special on a side table at your reception, complete with custom sparkler tags and all, and placed in a container like this:
Put a bit of sand in the bottom for extinguishing, FYI!
And place it next to a sign telling guests there is a sparkler send-off coming and what time it will happen. This sign is cute! By TheRustyWindmill.
We spotted these custom sparkler tags for wedding celebrations at here in small, large, and — bonus! — sparkler tags with matches, as a combination! Yay!

On top of it all, these are cheap sparkler tags that are also personalized sparkler tags! It’s rare to find an affordable option that is so nicely-made and offers customization, too.
You can get cheap sparkler tags under $1 each. If you choose the sparkler tags with matches, it costs a bit more (but you’re getting 30 matches in a book attached to the sparkler tag, so that’s definitely worth it! It is still just a little over $1 each for orders of 100 or more. And right now, you can get these cheap sparkler tags for even less with FREE shipping on orders over $99. Score!
There is also a little crafty element to these, as they are DIY sparkler tags. Very little assembly is required, as you’ll be placing your sparklers into the sparkler tags when they arrive. But don’t worry, you get the full bragging rights of making your own DIY sparkler tags with very little elbow grease, thanks to the the collection at For Your Party. :)
