  • Send guests this navy and white invitation with fireworks motif, and be sure to add the wording "dynamite duo" as a reference to the couple -- FineStationery.com
  • As favors, give out these lifesaver packets wrapped to look like firecrackers. (Please note that the original image via An Altered State of Mind said "Independence USA" for a Fourth of July celebration, but we edited it to show how you could use it for this particular event) -- An Altered State of Mind
  • Reserve a packet of sparklers for each guest and attach place cards to them containing seating information -- Country Living
  • Roll your napkins and add colorful napkin rings and sparkly confetti to the tops to make them resemble sticks of dynamite -- Simply Entertaining at Home
