Rice-throwing? Passé. Shower the bride and groom with these instead.
Instead of throwing rice, try these ideas for the wedding exit.
Bubbles: Cheap, easy and whimsical
Balloons: Use custom colors for a cheery vignette or fill up a limo
Rose petals: A delicate and fragrant option A human tunnel: Hold hands above head, connecting with the person across the aisle. High-fives for everyone. Bird Seed: Safe and satisfying for feathered friends Streamers: Colorful, fun, inexpensive
Wild flower seeds: Ecofriendly and adds beauty (much later)
Confetti: Toss any combo of shapes and colors
Sparklers: Looks great in the dark, but be careful: Tulle is flammable Hops: Milwaukee! ◆
