5 Things to consider if you want wedding fireworks!
1. Does my wedding venue allow fireworks?
It's important to find out if your wedding venue allows fireworks, most do but some may have restrictions. In some cases the venue may have a preferred supplier, they may also specify that the fireworks are over by a certain time or that only 'low noise' fireworks can be used.
Ask your venue where the fireworks are usually let off from and where your guests will stand to watch. Very few venues will allow you to set off your own fireworks because of the insurance liability. Illusion Fireworks Ltd have at £10m the highest level of insurance required by most venues.
2. How much should we spend on fireworks?
We are most often asked how much it will cost to provide a fireworks display, if we were to quote £500 for a traditional showcase when in fact you had in mind a budget of £10,000 for a multiple site masterpiece then you would be unlikely to book! This is why we always ask how big your budget for fireworks is.
All of our displays are tailored to suit your budget, realistically a bespoke wedding fireworks display should cost between £1000 and £3500 but we can provide a package display for as little as £500! A great start would be our Glitter, Shimmer or Sparkle packages and firework display upgrades.
3. Can we have fireworks to music?
Fireworks choreographed to music or 'Pyromusical' will provide you and your guests with an unforgettable memory. Fireworks visually reinforce the powerful emotions experienced while listening to music. The two arts come together to create a unique and evocative spectacle that can make grown men cry!
We can design a display choreographed to a piece of music that is sentimental to you and your partner, a favourite track or even your wedding song for as little as £1695 (including our PA sound system for up to 300 guests). Its best to have a dedicated PA between the audience and the fireworks
4. Can you include our wedding colours in the display?
Another common question we are asked! Of course we can, usually we kick things off in the wedding colours and include them in the finale uisng colour comets below bigger bursts, you can even have our famous firework rainbow or love heart shells which are always a winner with the audience.
There are a number of upgrade options that allow you to tailor your wedding fireworks display, for example the popular 'Ultimate Finale' for a classy finish or the 'Big Red Button' to start the show!We are always open to your ideas and love making your dreams a reality!
5. Is it easy to arrange the fireworks?
Because you have enough on your plate we like to keep things simple. Once you have chosen a display and how much you would like to spend (we are always on hand to help you make a decision) we simply ask you to fill out a booking form and choose the most convenient deposit / payment option.
We handle the rest, we will speak top the venue, carry out a site survey and design the show. A team of trained firers will set up the fireworks on the day, fire the show when you are ready and tidy up after! It's as easy as that, now, are you thinking fireworks will best the best way to end the day?!
