Hmmm…how will the bubbles be distributed?  Are they at each seat?  If someone’s handing them out, that person could let guetss know their purpose and encourage bubble blowing!

Are you going to have programs?  If so, you can add a cute little line in there about it.

You could also have your wedding party initiate it!

Brushetta’s got a good suggestion – perhaps have an usher or groomsman stand with the basket of bubbles, and as they are handed out, ask everyone to blow them at the end.  Including in the program is a good idea, too, or adding a ltitle hang tag with info.  You could also ask your officiant to mention it in their introduction, at the very beginning.

Oh, and for wording:

Shower us with love and bubbles after we kiss!

Or something along that but cuter πŸ™‚

I am not having bubbles because I am afraid they will mark my dress…am I being silly?  I like the idea, but too afraid!

Place a basket of bubbles at the entrance of the ceremony site with a sign that has a cute poem or phrase on it, and just to make sure everyone has one, have the ushers hand them out to people who may have missed them right before the ceremony starts.

The biggest thing is to make sure several people know when to do it. As long as a chunk of people know and can lead the charge, you should be good.

Heathaah: There are bubbles specifically for weddings that won’t stain your clothes.

We are having a rose petal toss at our recessional, and our officiant is including a mention of it in our presentation. After we kiss, he will say – “Let’s shower Danielle and FI with love by tossing rose petals their way as they walk down the aisle (short pause) for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Mybelle!”

I read somewhere that people often get so caught up in the ceremony that they forget to blow bubbles or toss petals before the bride and groom have already made their exit, as recessionals move quickly.

I’m having a basket of bubbles with different color ribbon on them to go with my wedding colors. On them i am tying a little poem on each one that i wrote…it says

As we walk down the aisle

As husband and wife

Please blow these bubbles

As we begin our new life!

 

I hope that helps you πŸ™‚

I think the best solution would be to add the bubbles to each chair; people will know what they are to be used for. Another option would be for the program attendent to hand them out with the program to each guest.

Otherwise I was going to suggest, but a few already have, to make a notation in your programs about it as well.

The last wedding I was at one of the readers and an usher stood at the end of the aisle with the baskets and while we all left we grabbed one.  I think most people know what the bubbles are for, so you probably don’t even need a sign.

I didn’t think tags would be necessary — but then my MOH reminded me of a wedding we went to last summer, where there were bubbles literally being blown at all different random times… including during the ceremony! A little distracting…

SO, here’s what we’ve come up with:

“After the kiss, if it isn’t too much trouble,

Shoot us a smile, and blow us a bubble”

or

“After the kiss, when we walk down the aisle,

Blow us a bubble, and watch us all smile”

πŸ™‚

 

Oh and we bought the tags at Jo-Anns and are printing them at home πŸ™‚
