While we love how wonderfully nostalgic throwing rice is after you’ve been pronounced ‘husband and wife,’ it’s fun to mix things up and choose something festive that suits the theme and feel of the wedding and you as a couple.
Here’s a round-up of some send-off ideas we love:
CONFETTI: Light, bright-colored confetti makes for a cheery celebration.
LAVENDER: Aromatic and a perfect shade of pastel purple, lavender is suited for a rustic, farm-inspired affair.
BEACH BALLS: If oceanside I dos are in your future, beach balls make a splash with guests to celebrate the new couple.
RIBBON WANDS: String together colored ribbons to make these whimsical wands, which look stunning flying through the air.
FEED THE BIRDS: For the eco-friendly love birds, throwing birdseed is a cool send-off sans guilt.
SPRINKLED WITH JOY: They’re on your favorites cookies, your favorite sundaes and now on your favorite day — multi-colored sprinkles are a sweet salute to your new marriage. And they’re photogenic!
UP, UP AND AWAY: There’s a childlike wonder in releasing balloons into the sky — fitting for the two kids in love.
GO WILD: Freshly-picked blooms are an earthy way to shower the newlyweds. How clever are these sheet music cones?
ALL THAT SPARKLES: If bling is your thing, flying glitter is just the ticket for your send-off.
WAVE ‘EM HIGH: Mini flags flying through the air couldn’t be any more charming. Fourth of July wedding, anybody?
