I’m having this same problem! Bubbles make me nervous, because they can stain fabric. Rice can choke and kill birds. Flower petals also can stain, but that’s less likely than with bubbles. I think that birdseed is the best option. Delicious for birdies, and nobody has to pick stuff up afterwards.

Edit: I didn’t think about birdseed sticking. I hadn’t heard that, but I’d hate to have a collection of birdseed between my boobs.

From what I’m heard petals seem like the best idea. Although they can stain … I wonder if you use white ones … will they stain? I haven’t conquered this question yet! I see you are married the weekend before me! Congrats. It’s coming so fast.

I know that I don’t want bubbles… or bird seed =)

I do want those great tossing shots though

P.S. and birdseed is hard … ouch

Lol is it bad that when I read your question, the first thing I thought was “I wish money…” and then my brain went to questions, insults, and rotten tomatoes. Nothing at ALL wedding related.

I saw those little fuzzy pom-poms in a few weddings, but God bless the person who had to pick those off the street.

We used birdseed. It got all in my dress, had birdseed impressions on my skin when I took the dress off. But it didn’t bother me too much and made for some fun pictures!

Oooh! That’s a really cool option. I’ve never heard of using lavender before.

@kmsull… my first thought too was along the lines of rotten tomatoes.  Must readjust mind to wedding type thoughts.  haha.

I like the great photos you get with your guests tossing things your way as you pass through!  what about those little confetti popper firecracker things.  There you pull the string and a few streamer-like things shoot out? Probably wouldn’t be any fun for someone to have to clean up though.  I’ve seen dailsy petals too, small, white, I don’t think they’d stain.

I have never been to a wedding where the couple has been showered by things as they left the church. The throwing has always happened when they left the reception. Not sure why that is…

Anywho, we are going to be handing out rally towels before the grand march, and they will be used for our send-off. I wasn’t crazy about being pelted with things by people who had been drinking.

I second the lavender! I can just imagine how wonderful it would smell 🙂

We are having sparklers so nothing thrown 🙁 Easy clean up though!

I have this weird fear that lavender will be soo messy. I don’t know why? I’d love to hear from someone that has actually seen this … was it messy? What it dried or fresh?

Rocks? Gumballs? Misc fruit? Hot dogs? It’s halloween, people could throw candy corn at us, that would be sweet
