I recently had a friend ask for some ideas on how to leave her wedding without using bubbles, sparklers, or having something thrown at her. I actually had zero ideas whatsoever, so I did some Google searching and found some ideas I thought were great! But, let me be clear… having things thrown at you can make for some great photos:
One great idea Catherine Flanagan suggested was Sky Lanterns. It seems like they’re really popular in the U.K. They’re a more expensive option – it costs $180 for 50 from SkyLanterns.com, but you could order less and do one per family or group of friends. When you leave the wedding, they’ll launch them and create a beautiful sky for you to walk through.
Another awesome idea I saw was photographed by Jeremy Igo. He suggests long flexible glow sticks for this.
I like the idea of signs – and there is so much you can do with them. This image, that I found on Side by Side, shows some really large, classy signs.
Similarly, these flags would be super cute to have waving as you make your grand exit..
These ribbon wands would be easy to make, but they’re also available online.
Finally – Here’s an inexpensive and fun way to leave. Simply have your guests gather in and raise their hands in the air, creating a tunnel for you and your new hubby to run/dance through!
What better way to end your wedding than with one of these options? It will help create great photos and your guests will remember your out-of-the-box ending!
