Wedding Send-Off Ideas

Looking for some wedding send-off ideas? Something other than confetti and rose petals?

It was the against the rules of the church that Darin and I got married in to have confetti or rose petals thrown as a wedding send-off because of the mess. Your church or ceremony venue might have similar rules. If this is the case, here are some charming alternatives:

Wedding sparklers are fun and make for great photos. (I love this photo by kabloomstudios!) It would make a great painting!

Ribbon wands are another charming (and colorful) wedding send-off!

    How about a Yay! flag. I did a combo of Yay flag and Ribbon wand. I bought plain muslin flags from Oriental Trading, did iron-ons of Yay in different fonts and our names (to put on the back). I think put eye-hooks in the top of the stick and threaded ribbons through.

    Still waiting for the professional pic...

    One of the most popular trends in weddings is to hold a grand send off of the bride and groom under a halo of brilliant wedding sparklers. Make a regal exit from the church or hall when your guests form an arch using the 20 inch sparklers.Consider making it extra special by lining the walk way with 36 inch sparklers. Simply insert the 36inch long sparkler into a flower pot or along the sides of the walkway, space them out one every 3 to 4 feet. This not only adds to the effect but also provides a great way of getting everyone’s sparklers lit. Have an usher or two walk the line lighting the 36 inch sparklers, and your guests can light their sparklers directly from them.
