Ideas For The Wedding Send Off!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

What are you planning for your grand exit after the festivities have ended, or you are leaving the church.

Most churches prefer you not to throw paper confetti due to the clean afterwards and rice confetti can be deadly for birds so here are a few alternatives.

Bird Seed Wedding 'Confetti'

Bird Seed Wedding ‘Confetti’

Bird seed is a great green alternative to traditional confetti and whats more the local bird population will clean it up for you.

The diy tutorial for making these pretty confetti packets can be found on The Pretty Blog.

Bubbles Wedding 'Confetti'

Bubbles Wedding ‘Confetti’

A great photo opportunity is to use wedding bubbles as your send off, the bubbles floating in the air around the bride and groom would make a beautiful photo.

 

Wedding Sparklers

Wedding Sparklers

For a wedding at night or a winter wedding a fantastic idea is wedding sparklers.

They look perfect personalised with the bride and groom name and wedding date.

Wedding Ribbon Wands

Wedding Ribbon Wands

If you would prefer your guest not to throw anything at you then another idea is to give each guest a ribbon wand to wave as you leave the church.

These wands are available from Craft Up Your Life and are available in many colour ways.

Petal Confetti

Petal Confetti

Another natural idea is real petal confetti, maybe tie it in with your bouquet flowers.

These are available from Shropshire Petals.

Pom Pom 'Confetti'

Pom Pom ‘Confetti’

And finally a fun idea, throwing wool pom poms, they can be made in any colour way to tie in with your colour scheme and as they are soft they won’t hurt when thrown.

Wedding Marquee Letter Lights

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

It would seem this years wedding trend is Marquee Letter Lights. They seem to be huge and everyone is talking about them, whether you prefer the original vintage ones complete with fabulous faded paint work and rust or you prefer the modern reproductions there is a huge range to choose from.

They range in size and of course price but there are companies out there who hire out the large signs and plenty of companies selling the smaller reproduction designs.

I have selected my favourite designs here complete with the marquee letters I have purchased myself for our 10 year wedding anniversary party next year.
