    I think maybe you could do a mix. If you are having kids at the ceremony they are probably going to like spinning around with the ribbon wands so that could provide some cute photos. Then adults can do bubbles so you can get a bunch in the photos.

    I voted bubbles because they are what I’m doing. I never even considered ribbon wands because… I think theyre dumb. If you love them then thats awesome and totally go for it, but I have always hated ribbon dancers and it reminds me of them.

    I love bubbles, but I have been warned that depending on your dress material and the type of bubbles you can actually stain your dress 😐

    I voted ribbon wands for this reason πŸ™‚ (Plus they are cute!)

    bubbles are great and lots of fun, but I’ve also heard about them ruining dress material! That would be heartbreaking! Ribbon wands all the way!

    I personally LOVE ribbon wands, but at my cousin’s wedding a lot of the guests vocally shared that they thought it was a dumb idea. I guess some grown folks think it’s undignified or silly to wave them around? They’re your pictures though, and I bet they’d go over a little better if you had a sign posted with instructions, or someone passing out the wands encouraging them to wave them for pictures. Bubbles are nice too and probably a lot cheaper and easier.

    @pinkpaperbride: LOL kinda funny, but blowing bubbles isn’t all that “adult” either πŸ™‚

    Before I clicked on the post, I would have said bubbles but now looking at the pictures, I do like the ribbons.  I do like the white ribbons instead of the colored ribbon.

    I will never outgrow the magic of bubbles! I would do bubbles. I just feel like they’re more fun for the guests to play with.

    If you do bubbles make you sure buy quality ones. The last wedding I was at had bubbles and they were those wedding favor ones you buy pretty cheap. Almost none of them even produced bubbles so the effect was lost for the pictures.

    I think I like the wands though.  You know they will be seen in a picture!
