Throwing rice as the newlyweds take off for their honeymoon has been a classic part of wedding traditions over the years, but lately it has fallen a bit out of trend. The bride and groom’s exit is an exciting part of the wedding and of course everyone wants to see them off in a special way. In honor of that we have come up with some “rice alternatives.” These are a few trendier and more stylish options for the big send-off.
The colors of flower petals show up great in photos and because they naturally occur in nature you don’t have to worry about them doing any harm to the environment. Totally safe and totally gorgeous. We especially love using petals that correspond with your wedding colors.
Bubbles are almost as classic a choice as rice but they are still very much on trend. The great thing about this choice is that the bubble bottles make great wedding favors and the kids will love blowing bubbles for hours!
Balloons are a totally original choice. Give each guest one balloon in the color of your choice and have them line up along the exit path. It is such a whimsical take on the sendoff. The balloons will look great blowing in the wind but we would advise you not to let them go as they could get caught up in trees and power lines!
