Ok Bees maybe its a possibility that I tend to overthink things a teensy tiny bit a lot. But with a month left until my wedding I feel like my OCD has gone into OVERDRIVE! Im stuck in this awkward inbetween of not caring and wanting it all over with to omg what if I don’t have enough (insert minor thing that doesn’t matter at all here)! Now I have recently found out that because our venue is set up with a cobblestone aisle but everything around it is not they will only allow confetti/rose petals/rice (I have harry potter book page heartshaped confetti to be tossed 🙂 to be thrown in the center aisle and with the way the venue is set up there will be no grand exit to throw things. So my idea is this.. Place organza favor bags filled with the hearts in the seat on the aisle with a little poem attached that explains when to toss them. It would still turn out in pics but my concern is I don’t want everyone else feeling left out.. I also thought about buying bubbles for the people that wont be in the aisle but I don’t really like bubbles in my photos (odd Ive been told but eh…). Will it be ok to just have those in the center aisle toss the confetti since it will be during the recessional after we are prounounced hubby and wifey? According to everyone else I am overthinking it but I know I have some fellow bees out there that may be a tad OCD themselves 😉
PS. I can’t get rid of the confetti altogether it’s one of three things my FH actually wanted to have a say in.

I’m not sure if this will help, but maybe! To include more people you could purcahse some of these confetti “launchers”…(Launcher is a scary word, but there is no CO2, it’s just “launched” by a flick of the wrist.) for people who aren’t seated towards the aisle. I think these will make pictures awesome. But I may be bias because I am having these at my wedding. lol
Make sure you watch the youtube video at the bottom.
Also, I don’t think people will feel left out if you decide to only place confetti at the aisle seats…some people will want to sit in the aisle seats to throw confetti, and I bet some won’t sit there because they don’t want to.

@Razzmatazz: thank you! I am worried though that it wouldn’t all end up in the cobblestone and I don’t want to be charged extra for clean up :/

There is eco-friendly dissolving confetti: http://etsy.me/180bRhG
Would that work?

@LadyMoriarty: I unfortunately I asked about this kind and she said no because there are pebbles around the walkway and they have a wedding the day after owould:( I wish they would have told me about this rule before hand because its not in any of my papers. I thought about wands for the rest of the crowd but do you think it would look funny in pics to have Wands on the outside and confetti in the middle?

@lilhenry89: Hmm.. no, I don’t think it would look weird. I think wands and confetti would look nice together. It would make for a great picture, because there would be so much going on (in a GOOD way!)
