Top 10 Wedding Day Send Offs

top 10 wedding day send offs

Every part of the wedding planning is important — from finding THE dress, to choosing your colors, to planning your grand departure.  If you want to make a lasting  impression on your guests as you leave your wedding reception, take a look at our fun, and often non traditional, top 10 wedding day send offs!

1. Sparklers- They’re perfect for lighting up the night and I think we’ll all agree, they really do make for great photographs!  *Planning Tip- Shell out for quality!   Better quality sparklers usually don’t shoot wayward sparks, burn cleaner and last longer.

2. Glow Sticks- Glow sticks fill your wedding night with colorful lights, the perfect accompaniment to couples who want to dance the night away.  Especially good for a night time exit,  when sparklers aren’t allowed.

3. Lanterns- Sky lanterns, originating from Chinese culture, were used to declare hopes for a prosperous future.   Have your guests follow tradition and send their lanterns into the sky with well wishes attached.

4. Bubbles- A bubble exit is a fun, playful and inexpensive way to depart.  *Planning Tip- Great for daytime pictures, try these directly after the ceremony when you’re leaving the chapel.

5. Pom Poms- Have your guests cheer your new life as a couple together with pom poms!   They make such cute photos, can easily match your wedding day colors, and afterwards,  make great favors for guests to take home.

6. Balloons- What says a celebration like a balloon? They’re also an easy way to match the colors of your wedding and can add a whimsical feel.

7. Streamers- Streamers add a unique and colorful feeling to your photos!

8. Ribbons- Like using streamers but with a much easier clean up!

9. Rose Petals- A send off classic, rose petals are timelessly romantic, and great for the environment! They’re the one of the best “green” options out there, being bio-degradable and easily sourced locally (where they’re often grown organically).  Believe it or not, roses are actually edible and won’t harm wildlife long after your departure.
(rice, pigeons, need I say more).

10. Confetti- Another colorful option, these make a dazzling photo display.  Check out these confetti favor cones, for a clever DIY idea to try!
