The vows have been read. The guests have been fed.
There was dancing and laughter and now it’s the end.
We were glad to have you at THE SPRINGS.
You partied like rock stars.
You, wedding rock star, you.
And now it’s time for the big finale.
Here are the 13 of our brides’ favorite wedding toss items for the Grand Exit:
Ribbon Wands – A favorite on Pinterest; these often have swirls of
ribbons & noisemakers attached to them. They photograph well.
They’re inexpensive & no clean up. Guests can take them home with them.
You can personalize with your themed colors or add lace, notes, and
be as DIY as you want with these. (See pic #3)
Candle cups – These make for stunning photographs.
A little more effort for the DIY bride to assemble these because you’ll
want to make sure no wax lands on your venue floor! Best for small
wedding guest counts. Ask your manager where you can hold one of these
exits on property. (See pic #4)
Bubbles – Probably the most popular & for good reason.
These stay in the air for a long time, so the photographs are AWESOME!
They’re inexpensive & available all over the internet for ordering.
They’re whimsical & always a crowd favorite. Plus, they
can be combined with most any other guest favor!
(See pics #2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 21, 23, 29)
Lavender, Baby’s Breath, & Floral Petals – A romantic option for a pretty exit.
Lavender smells so good, doesn’t hurt when thrown at you, is
friendly to the environment & if you can time it just right with
your photographer, makes for great pictures. Often, brides put these in small
sachets or paper cups for guests. Do ask your manager where
floral petals can be thrown- some have dyes in them
and stain walkways, yikes! (see pics #11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 22, 27)
Glow Sticks – These are a real crowd-pleaser because they’re introduced
to the party during the reception when guests are still
dancing. They make for great photos for the night shots
and can go home with guests. No risk of anything dying or staining
your clothes & nothing is being thrown at you! (See pics #14, 18, 24, 28, 30, 32)
Ribbon Streamers – These are really fun, but short-lived because they only work once.
The photographs gained from it are worth it, but make sure your photographer
is ready for the big moment, there’s no “do-overs”. These attached to your finger and
all at once, you throw them forward and they elongate to streamers. (see pic #25)
Paper Airplanes – These bring out the “kid” in everyone. It also gives
guests something to do at their reception tables between dances. Guests fold
their own paper airplanes & get ready for the exit. Use colorful paper to match
your wedding colors. It’s inexpensive & an easy exit item. (See pic #19)
Towels & Flags – A great way to incorporate your alma mater if your school(s)
are important in your lives. Or, if you’re military or patriotic, consider using
the state or USA flags. It’s also a great way to have fun if you’re hosting a destination
wedding & you have out-of-state or international guests. I couldn’t find a picture
of flags, but do have a nice towel photo that I LOVE. (See pic #17)
Balloons – This can be done in a variety of ways. Some do a “release” while others have guests
take them home with them. Use your wedding colors or introduce a new element (school colors,
red / white/ blue for something patriotic, red / gold / green if it’s in December, etc). Some
fill the balloons with LED lights or glow sticks- beautiful for pictures! (See pics #1, 5, 20)
Nothing – Yep, I’m serious! Sometimes, less is more & this is definitely the case.
Guests assemble & clap hands, outstretch their arms, make a tunnel, etc. It’s a great way
to focus on the moment and give hugs & high-fives on your way out without having to
stress over a “toss” item. You’ll have to check out the pictures to believe me! (See pics #26, 31)
