Inspiration: Distinctive Farewells and Exits..Part I

If you’re looking for one last fun photo op before the end of your wedding night, look no further! Welcome to a the first in a series of posts filled with inspiration of wedding departures, sendoffs, and farewells!  Read below for some fun ideas and things to consider with each option.

Freeze Dried Rose Petals

  • Eco friendly
  • Freeze dried; will not stain dress/apparel
  • Over 105 colors
  • Flyboy Naturals http://www.flyboynaturals.com/ – Visit their website and order samples before you decide- see for yourself- they are so fun (I also LOVE these for table and event decor)

Eco Friendly Confetti!

  • http://www.ecoparti.com/toec.html
  • Ecofetti™ is the new safe and accepted wedding toss with no cleanup worries.
  • Water-soluble and completely biodegradable confetti – either hose it away or let nature help with the cleanup…
  • No slipping or staining, and ecofetti flutters easily to the ground
  • Ecofetti™ is packaged with a scoop: Packages contain enough for each guest to have 1 rounded Tablespoon for the toss.
  • Keep in mind, if using a basket for guests to help themselves, you may want to increase the amount ordered – some enthusiastic guests can take 2 to 3 times that amount…




Finger Streamers

•Less messy than traditional confetti and streamers!
•Nice way to combine your wedding colors for some visual interest
•Fun and safe for all ages
I love these from Etsy seller Extravagant Exits

Ribbon Wands

•1, 2 or 3 colros of ribbon per streamer 
•I LOVE these from Etsy Seller Romancing Juliet
  • check with your venue to find out if they are permitted
  • Buy the extra long variety, becuase it takes a little time to get everyone lined up, and light them!
  • Stop halfway through the line, and kiss for at least ten seconds- great photo op for the photographers, especially given the low/no light!
  • Don’t forget buckets filled halfway with sand for guests to discard them into  (oh the reasons to hire a planner, just one of  a thousand!)

Silver Streamers

  • This is a fun choice for daytime weddings
  • Fun look, safe for all ages
  • Very budget friendly; Party City sells them for $19.99 for a set of 14
  • Be sure to check to see if your venue allows them- or arrange for cleanup- they leave a mess!
