Fireworks displays are not just for New Year’s Eve or Guy Fawkes’ Night celebrations but they can bring the wow factor to a lot different occasions and parties. Having a fireworks display doesn’t need to end up costing a fortune as long as you do enough preparation beforehand.
Here are some top tips to help you set up a great fireworks display.
The key to a successful fireworks display is in the planning and you should spend enough time to really think about your display. The key things to consider are:
- The venue – you need to get fireworks that can be set up regarding the space you have available. This is the time to consider where you will be shooting and where the audience will be.
- The time and day – by the UK law you can shoot fireworks on most days as long as you do so before 11pm so take this into consideration. Also make sure that the night sky is dark enough to ensure a better view of the fireworks.
- The budget – set a budget before you buy fireworks. Think about how much you are willing to spend and then look around to see how much and what types of fireworks you can get with this amount of money.
You can then start thinking about the order you want to start your fireworks. As a general rule of thumb the best is to start with a bang and end with an even bigger bang. Change the fireworks around a bit and don’t shoot all of the same ones at once.
Quality Over Quantity
You shouldn’t think that the more fireworks you get the better your display would be. As the Firework Review writes this is a big misconception that simply isn’t true. Always go for quality over quantity. This is especially true with a limited budget. You want your audience to be really wowed even if it only lasts a few minutes rather then going for cheaper fireworks that will provide a longer show.
You can look at some good firework bargains from Fireworks Crazy and start planning your fireworks display. Look at a few bigger items and then add some smaller fireworks in between them. With great quality fireworks your guests will enjoy the display and they won’t notice whether it was long or short.
Remember The Safety
Of course the essential thing is to remember to take care of all the safety regulations. Make sure that you have a safe place to store the fireworks before the display and that you buy only from licensed dealers.
Get to know the specific shooting instructions on your fireworks before the display and get yourself a pair of safety goggles to keep yourself safe. Don’t allow children near the fireworks when you are setting them up and remember to tell your audience to keep the safety distance.
The above top tips can help you hold a great firework display and really wow your audience. With careful planning you can have a great show even with a limited budget.
