I am having mixed feelings about what to do for my exit. Of course, we are all looking for something unique or creative. My chapel is very particular on what can be used. For instance, if throwing petals, you must clean them up afterwards. I simply don’t want to go through the hassle on my wedding day.
Tell me about your exit.

- Wedding: July 2012 - The Gables Inn, Santa Rosa, CA
Bubbles are a great option that don’t require clean up. Or, for an evening event you could get sparklers– I am an event planner, and I worked a wedding last May where the bride and groom ran through a tunnel of sparklers held by their guests– it was super cute, and the photos came out great afterward.

i wouldnt recommend bubbles. Depending on the material your dress is made of, the bubbles can very possibly leave a bunch of little brown spots all over your dress. Not to mention, imagine trying to smile, in heels, with a bubble in your eye! Not the most graceful, if you ask me. Im making hundreds of little bags of birdseed for people to throw outside the church, that way we dont have to clean it up because the birds will do it for us and it wont hurt them.

Sparklers are super cute, but it does take a lot of close management to have everyone light them at the same time and be in line to send you off.

@FluffysMama: Very good point! I truly didn’t think about my dress or eye (LOL)! After consideration, I am going to go with bird seed. I just don’t want to spend hundreds on wedding wands. Majority will throw them away.
@kate02121: The only thing that sucks is my wedding is during the day :*( I wanted sparklers but I figured…by the end of the reception some people would be gone and others too wasted…lol

My venue is extremely picky about what you can use. I wanted sparklers…but I can’t do them. I don’t want bubbles….so I am using these:
The best part is…they stay ATTACHED! My FI and I tested them ourselves too and they are truly about 7 feet long. If you point them up at a decent angle I think they will be really cool in pictures! There is an example picture on the Amazon link 🙂

I was able to make ribbon wands for our guests for about $1 a piece. I got the idea from another bee’s post about an Etsy seller. My venue doesn’t allow bubbles or sparklers. Any rose petals thrown would need to be cleaned up immediately or we’d have to pay a $500 fee. Plus, I’m not too keen on the whole having stuff thrown at me thing. Ribbon wands can be done on the cheap. Home Depot sells dowels for less than craft stores and you can find ribbon at WalMart.

I used ribbon wands too! They turned out great and the kids loved them.
