Have a question, my ceremony is in the garden of the venue I am having my cocktail hour/reception. Its only a few yards from the door of the venue and I am not sure if having guest throw anything as we walk down the aisle as we leave the ceremony. Is it too tight a space for rose petals and would people know when to throw them?

I have been to 2 weddings where the ceremony was outside of the venue the reception was held at. Guests did not throw anything at either and I felt that it was appropriate to be done that way. I personally would not have known when to throw anything!

If you don’t provide anything to throw, or any direction/guidance on when to throw, then I don’t think that it would be weird.
Being such a short distance, I would probably opt out of throwing something…

From what you describe, it seems best to not throw anything. If you do decide to, tough, there a cute poems out there that you could use to tell your guests when to throw them.

to be honest i have never been to a wedding where guests threw anything! some people were given bells to ring as the couple walked out of the ceremony but that’s about it.

People usally throw things ‘outside’ as they exit the church/temple. I’ve also heard bells being used at receptions so people don’t clank classes.
You need to ask permission also if you can ‘throw anything.’
Save your $ and spend it on something more meaningful.

Do you want to have people throw something? If you really want people to throw rose petals, or blow roses, I’m sure you could find something that would make it work!

i’ve been to weddings where flower petals were thrown and weddings where nothing was thrown… i’m thinking having guests blow bubbles because we’re sort of in the same situation… our ceremony and reception will be at the same spot, and we’re having quite a relaxed wedding. giving bubbles to the guests to blow can also act as a wedding favour =)
