Is throwing rice/seeds/confetti still a thing?

I’m doing heart shaped rice, but no, I don’t think people will care if you don’t do something like that.

As a many-times guest, I hate doing it. Confetti is hard to clean up, rose petals can be slick, and rice is food (I just don’t understand people who would be that wasteful for no reason.) I also once saw a bridesmaid slip on bubble solution from a bubble-wand exit. So I’d feel the last thing in the world from slighted, personally. But as with all things, it’s an individual choice.

I know for ours the church told us DO NOT DO RICE, the birds can’t digest it. They recommended doing bird seed. We did bubbles for ours

11mikesgirl21:  I wouldn’t think twice about it! I’ve been to some weddings that have and some that haven’t, and those that haven’t have never stuck out as being strange or felt like something was missing, I didn’t even think about it!

I am partial to the confetti craze that has come back (i’m not sure if it’s just popular again in my area or everywhere) but we can’t have it due to venue rules so we won’t be doing any ‘throwing of stuff’ either! 🙂

Nope. Haven’t seen it in decades.
