Gone are the days of throwing rice or bird seed. This tradition was introduced to me when I was just a little kid as the flower girl of several weddings, I watched with confusion as the bride and groom were pummeled with bird seed and it felt strange. How many times in ones life would a couple ask their friends and family to throw handfuls projectiles right at them? Haha bizarre right?! With this in mind, I’m definitely more partial to the unique and fun send off ideas I see at weddings today! Friends with sparkles form a long tunnel that the bride and groom, hand in hand run through as their family and friends yell and cheer for them and wish them well as they begin their life as a newly married couple.
While sparkler exits are fun and exciting, they are also beginning to get ultra popular and oh so common. Being unique and different are often the goal of couples as they plan their wedding so I thought I would share with you some unique wedding exits from around the internet to help you find something new, wild and so much fun!
Pom poms are inexpensive, soft, colorful and fun. Definitely a fantastic thing to toss instead of rice or birdseed!
