What did people toss at you when you were married?

Nothing. We went from the hotel ballroom to our hotel room.

I believe at the time the church had a birdseed-only policy. The service ended at 6:30 PM, in the middle of winter, and all the guests headed over to the hotel, for cocktail hour, while we had photos taken. I believe the church changed their policy, because of bird droppings.

coffeedrinker:  we also skipped tosses. I know other bees have done ribbon wands, & ringing little handheld bells is also popular.

I think we’re doing little bells. They’re a play on our response cards which had options related to “being there with bells on!” But, I don’t have them yet, and our wedding is next Saturday . . . we shall see if they make an appearance!

Dried flower petals in our wedding colours. I have been to several weddings with these. They are handed out near the exit to the church and tossed. The only problem occurs if they are dyed, in which case they can stain fabric. However, if they are not dyed then they are organic, fragrant, and generally acceptable by most people, because are organic and biodegradable.

coffeedrinker:  I’m not a fan of the tossing because I’m a rebel and I hate being told what to do 😉

Nothing.  The venue rules out most options, and it was extra work for something I didn’t care about anyway.  It’s been about 15 years since I’ve been to a wedding that had something, and it was bubbles.

Nothing. We’re using ribbon wands instead – which people will wave, not throw.

coffeedrinker:  We are using these cool pop out streamers by Wilton! They can be purchased at Michael’s Craft Store (love the 50% off coupons). I managed to score a large quantity at a very low price on Ebay by someone who purchased them from Christmas Tree Shops.

The streamers are 10 ft long and remain attached to the container for easy clean up (we’re getting married in a public facility that does not allow “tossed” items). But we’re making sure to instruct our guests to aim the streamers high to avoid getting overly tangled!

We got married outdoors at a conservatory and did bubbles.

coffeedrinker:  Way back in ’99, before it was a thing, we did the little handbells. We may do the ribbon wands with bells, but it will be done after the ceremony. However, I am not really wanting to include too many extra costs, so we may forego it.
