Some people throw stuff/blow bubbles as the couple exits the church, leaving the ceremony and heading for the reception. Others do it as the couple leaves the reception. As the bride, you get to set the tone, hopefully with the input from the groom and whoever is paying for the wedding.

Aside: do not throw rice, as birds eat it and while there are differing opinions on if it actually explodes their stomachs when it starts absorbing water in there, it’s definitely not good for the birds. And do not throw birdseed without your venue’s consent as it will attract not just birds but also squirrels and rats.  Rose petals are good for throwing (real or fake), and bubble-blowing is generally more considerate than throwing stuff because no one has to clean up bubbles. Some couples use streamers or sparklers for their send-off.

We had planned on having everyone blow bubbles as we walked back up the aisle, but that didn’t quite happen because we had someone to pass out the bubbles, but neglected to tell her where the bubbles were. So instead, we passed out bubbles at the reception.

@arabesque0128:  oh no! our bubbles are in the same basket as the programs so my FI niece will be handing out both and telling people to start to  blow them when we kiss 🙂
