We had everyone line up and throw rose petals. We then got in our car and drove around to the back of the building to get out bags haha but we didn’t see too many people other than the bridal party after that so it worked pretty well for a send-off! It also makes for cute pictures

Since we can’t have sparklers (which would’ve been perfect for a NYD wedding), we are going to give out glow sticks. We will probably get blue to match our colors.

We stayed for the last dance, then we scheduled a car to come get us.  We ended up running around the room and waving goodbye.  If you stay until the very end, you might get held up and never get a chance to spend some alone time with your new spouse on your wedding night.  I suggest giving yourself a departure date and making sure someone (a friend even) get you the heck out of the room or the patio where happy hour is at that time.  You’ll just get stuck otherwise.

We’re having our wedding at his family’s farm, which is in the middle of nowhere.  I imagine a lot of our younger guests are going to be camping out in the back field.  We’re doing the “send off” as we walk down the aisle, since we’re not actually going anywhere that night.

We did not stay until the end. We had everyone walk down to a dock where a boat was. Then we walked down and everyone had sparklers. People stayed at the reception about 30-45 minutes after we left and kept dancing and drinking and hanging out. We didnt have a definitive time that we were leaving, but we just left when we were ready to. At one point I just went up to my husband and said “Im ready to go” and he said he was too so our DOC got everyone to go down to the dock at that point. I was so glad we left when we did!!!

I’ve been to a wedding that was at the hotel everyone was staying at and that also had an after party.  The bride and groom had a big exit and had a car waiting, which eventually brought them back to the hotel.  They had some alone time but joined everyone for the after party a little later.  It seemed to work out really well for them.
