The first dance has been done and the cake's been cut—now it's time for the grand finale. It's easy to make your wedding exit just as exciting as your entrance with a little help from your guests. And you can customize it to fit your personalities perfectly. Whether you're timing it at the very end of the special night or as you depart from your ceremony venue, en route to the reception, this fun tradition is always super fun and interactive for everyone.
1| Toss Flower Petals
Move over flower girls, blooms aren't just for tossing along the aisle anymore. A post-nuptial petal toss is a pretty and festive way to kick off the rest of the day's celebration.
2| Blow Tiny Bubbles
Streamers and petals are pretty, but require extra post-ceremony cleanup. Bubbles double as fun favors with less mess—just don't get too sticky. While you may think these suds only lend themselves to daytime celebrations, we disagree. With enough ambient lighting, a bubble fest will be just as visible after dusk—or you can even opt for glow-in-the-dark bubbles. And if you really want to get serious about your bubbly exit employ a bubble machine.
3| Light Sparklers
There's always the classic wedding send-off: sparklers. A sparkler-studded exit is a great way to glam up a casual wedding or add a sense of whimsy to a formal celebration. Present extra sparkler sticks in custom wrappers with your name or monogram for an easy wedding favor.
4| Toss Oversized Glitter
Why oversized? It's easier to clean up than regular glitter, and it will show up better in your photos. Just don't forget that this is glitter that we're talking about so it will stick to your skin and hair, especially if you're a bit sweaty from a night of dancing.
5| Toss lavender
A lavender toss would be especially lovely at a wedding in the spring or summer and adds a bit of provincial French flair to any occasion. You can also incorporate other dried flowers like chamomile or calendulas to the mix.
