Are you doing a special exit?

We didn’t do a grand exit. We left with the last of he guests. I stopped and used the bathroom on the way out. We rode to the hotel in the back of my uncle’s truck (only a half mile on neighborhood streets).

I’d  be afriad of someone getting hit in the face with a glowstick. Especially you, since you’d be in the middle. And that could hurt. I’d also worry that there wouldn’t be a lot of guests left at the end and they may not be into it. But if you’re finishing the night fairly early you’d probably still have plenty of guests, so it might work. Generally I avoided most things that you do just for a cool picture. But that’s me. Maybe see what your bridal party thinks?

No, we won’t. I want to party until the end so we will just leave with the last people.

We did the ribbon thing … Or we tried – my mom

had a long trip and volunteered to

make them I told her to make them about 14-16inches long  but somehow she got 4-6 inches long ….

so we tease and call them

twinklers she made like 200

so I didn’t have the heart to re do them

@excitedtobeMRSF:  I love cute exits.  Since I plan on staying to the end of the reception, I’ve considered some sort of send off from the Church, but I don’t know if that will work out.  The glowsticks sounds like it could be painful, and difficult to photograph since some people will be off with their glowstick-throwing timing.

@excitedtobeMRSF:  Yeah, I think 10 is a good end time if you want to do an exit. Your responce made me flash to A Christmas Story – “You’ll poke your eye out kid!” You could also consider those glow in the dark necklace/bracelet things that are flexible – those might hurt less if you get hit. You could also consider bubbles. There was a wedding that I went to that had bubbles for the exit out of the ceremony (which didn’t work very well) but then people used them during their first dance and it was really pretty.

We’re both Texas A&M fans, and at games everyone waves towels. So I bought a ton and handed them out for our exit.

We did bubbles when we left the church (we had to do it outside). Otherwise we had glowsticks for the dance, and they rocked. We didn’t do an exit song at the dance though. You guys might have enough people to do an exit since you’re ending at 10, but we just didn’t have the crowd at midnight 🙂

We did a sparkler exit. After weeks of my planner trying to get me to do a sparkler first dance, when we did it our way at the end she told us “good call on the exit instead of the dance.” Funny story that we had to run through the sparklers three times so the photographer could get plenty of shots. Glad we got the 3.5 minute sparklers lol.

I really wanted to do a sparkler exit but our venue doesn’t allow it!
