Bird seed will get stuck in your dress.  I would def avoid it!

We’re using ribbon wands. I love how they look in photos.

I found some biodegradable confetti online that looks beautiful, but then never bothered to order it in time for the wedding. it dissolves in water so the first rain will get rid if it or you could just hose it down after the wedding.

i ended up sending my brother out to collect frangipani petals from the streets around our house. also one of our guests bought her own confetti and gave it out to other guests to throw which I thought was kind of strange. I think I was not yet in ‘yay we’re married now lets just relax and enjoy the day’ mode, because I remember seeing these dried rose petals everywhere and thinking ‘ummm what the hell are they? red roses do not feature anywhere in this wedding!’

We used bio-degradeable butterfly confetti from BHLDN. It was perfect.

Ribbon wands are the new thing.

Do you guys have a theme?

What makes bubbles tacky? When I think of tacky I think of too much cleavage hanging out of a dress, or asking directly for money. Bubbles are just fun!

I used bubbles, and it made for some neat photos. No cleanup, and my photographer got some cute pictures of my FIL and grandma delicately blowing into little bride shaped bubble wands. The pictures make me giggle.

And there were pretty non-people ones too, like so:

They will make for good backgrounds on wedding album pages.

@caiteliz23:  Bubbles are the easiest!  And they look great in our pictures.

I’m trying to figure this out as well. I thought about possibly using colorful sprinkles.

Since we’re getting married in November we didn’t want to use something that guests would need to remove their gloves for. The weather is so unpredictable that it could be quite cold that time of year. Bubbles could be freezing, especially if the liquid got on someone’s fingers.

We decided to go with bells. When we leave the church, guests will have little bells to ring. No clean up and can be done with gloves on!
