Long story short, I really really really want people to throw rice when we recess back down the aisle. Love the idea of it, the tradition of rice etc… Also, please don’t tell me that birds will explode, it’s a complete myth!
I am worried that our elderly guests will slip and fall because our aisle is concrete (outdoor setting, concrete aisle). I have been thinking of doing a confetti toss, but am worried that it will get all over us and not come off.
Anyone else have experience with confetti tosess or have any other ideas of what we can hae thrown as we exit the ceremony?
As a friendly FYI I am not a fan of bubbles, streamers, bells etc…I need something thrown at me 🙂

We were going to use a confetti toss, but I didn’t want to have all that paper lying about on grass. We looked at eco-fetti, but I really didn’t like the look of it. I wanted bigger rectangles or dots like the kind you shoot out of a confetti cannon. Turns out that dissolvable confetti is usually only available in white in the US and that just didn’t suit our needs… So we abandoned the confetti plan and thereby limited our clean up!

We would have had bubbles…but I forgot to put them out on the chairs. But they’re a no clean up solution! (The chemist in me just giggled at the pun…)

Don’t know if this will help, but… We used some confetti ‘shooters’:
There were colored ones (which my DOC had to sweep up afterwards) and silver ones. The silver ones (not pictured above) were attached to the ‘popper’ part so there wasn’t anything to clean up.
Sort of like this, but not red white and blue:
In retrospect, should have used just the silver ones to save my DOC some work. But I guess that was part of her job! 🙂

Im actually buying ecofetti 🙂
I dont really mind what they look like, because they look AWESOME in pictures IMHO! Im really looking forward to the pics when we leave the altar and our guests shower us with ecofetti!

I’d be more concerned about cleaning it up then it not coming off. Have you thought about a petal toss?

We are doing bubbles! Our church actually would not let us use anything but bubbles so that solved our problem 🙂
