GOING OUT WITH A BANG: THE PERFECT WEDDING SEND OFF
Whether it be an evening grand exit or the ceremony recessional, it’s been tradition for newlyweds to celebrate their exits by going out with a bang! Here’s a combination of what we’ve seen our couples do for a creative and awe-inspiring wedding send off and what’s up and coming for both ceremony and reception exits!
Ceremony Recessional Exits
Used traditionally for ceremony recessional exits were to toss rose petals, rice, confetti or blow bubbles. Just like other wedding elements, the traditional wedding send off items have been reinvented into so much more! Here are some of the items for a ceremony recessional we LOVE!

Balloons to line the walkway and be released on the count of three!
Other wedding send off ideas we love are tossed feathers or lavender as well as colorful ribbon dowels. What could be more of a perfect wedding send off than this? Just like I say in all of my posts, try something unique! Chances are your guests have been to several weddings previous to yours. Give them something to talk about right from the get-go that they’ll have fun with and remember long after the wedding is over.
Reception Send Offs
I always love when couples choose big impact decorations at their reception and when the wedding send off isn’t overlooked! Not only are evening exits the perfect note to end the reception on but are always great photo ops you’ll want your photographer to capture! We’ve seen a ton of AWESOME send offs – here are some of our favorites!

Tips for your wedding send off: consider the clean up involved afterwards as well as the user-friendliness of the send off item you’ve decided to use! Make sure you inform guests when and where to use them!
