I am having a nautical themed wedding, and I was wondering if you have bees have any ideas of things to throw when we are walking down the aisle for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. I’m thinking it might be cute to throw gummy lifesavors or goldfish. Thoughts? I like the idea of rose petals, confetti or just not doing anything at all as well.

@gsmith10: well….lifesavers might hurt if someone really THROWS it at you.
I wouldn’t throw anything. Alot of places wont let you throw things because of the mess it makes.

Bubbles ? It’s not as messy. All the places we’ve visited do not allow throwing of any sorts (confettis, rice, petals).

@gsmith10: How bought you get nautical themed ribbon wands like in the first pic and then everybody can wave them. Like the example in the second pic??

@Swizzle: gummy lifesavers wouldnt hurt too bad! lol.
@gsmith10: agreed with @NauticalDisaster: most places wont allow you to throw rice or food or confetti. Bubbles and wands arent a bad idea at all.
I’m having a beach wedding and i have palm sized inflatable beachballs in everyone seat to throw in the air as we walk back down the aisle

@gsmith10: Clamshells. Definitely clamshells. I’d prefer to throw whole quahogs in fact. They can then double as guest favors for those willing to bucket them up and bring them home.

@beachbride1216: Ha ha. Do you see the heart shape in the shell? Sooooo romantic. Ok, ditch the idea unless you two are wearing helmets. Good luck girly! 🙂

I think you should stick with bubbles or a ribbon wand. I would hate to try and clean up gummy lifesavers or goldfish.

I like the ribbon flags too! Sometimes the bubbles do not work as well as you would think.

I like the ribbons or bubbles. Lifesavers would hurt, be a mess, and pretty wasteful. Same for goldfish and as people step on those it will get even messier.
We’re also not allowed to toss anything, we can have bubbles but that’s all.

@LilRhodyGem: Geoducks. They’re softer and much more gross-looking!
