    our reception is at a hotel, and part of the deal is FI and I get a nice suite for the night! so…in our case at least, a “send-off” would be a bit anti-climatic! Haven’t thought much about it yet. I was assuming we would probably just slip out.

    No.  I don’t know how late we’ll stay, and we aren’t going on our honeymoon until the day after, so it would seem odd to me to do in my circumstances.

    We had a sparkler send off and left on a boat. It was one of the most fun (and picture worthy) parts of the night!

    My wedding is at a B&B and the barn turned reception hall is literally right across the driveway from the cottage we’ll be staying in.  As such, a regular send off wouldn’t really work BUT I still wanted to do the sparklers.

    Instead of doing it as a send off, we’re going to do a special last dance on the patio of the reception hall with all the guests gathered around us in a circle while we dance to our runner-up first dance song.  I think the pictures will turn out awesome and it won’t be awkward with everyone lining up to watch us walk 10 feet.

    I plan on closing down my wedding reception so there won’t be a send off.

    We stayed at our venue that night (B&B), so we just said our goodbyes and when the last guest left went up to our room.

    We aren’t doing any special send off. I’ll toss the bouquet and we’ll be off!

    We are renting a hunting lodge for our ceremony/reception/place to stay/honeymoon afterwards so there wont be a normal send off. However the closest hotel is like 30 minutes away so at 10 or 11 Ill be having a shuttle come get the older and/or wasted people. So as a send off to them we are going to release sky lanterns. I can’t wait.

    The resort that we’re getting married at includes our wedding night suite as part of our package so having a send-off only to turn around and come back seems pointless to me. More than likely 11 o’clock will hit and we’ll all just leave. Quite the exciting conclusion, I’m sure.

    We had sparklers~which I loved! After we ran through the sparklers twice, we thanked everyone for coming to the wedding and kinda mingled with the guests until everyone left.

    If you want a send off go for it. Just because you don’t immediately get into a car and leave, doesn’t mean you can’t do sparklers, bubbles, rose petals, or what ever you want. 🙂

    Our venue has to be cleaned up by midnight, so we will leave about 10pm (if anyone is still there) go to the hotel and change clothes… 5 minutes away, the come back and help clean up, after all it is our wedding party.

    Ceremony is at 3:25pm on the patio, reception immediately following inside the building, potluck dinner, dancing and fun.

    We are getting married on a Sunday, so not sure how many will actually hang like they would if it had been a Saturday.
