    Leave the bags plain. Birdseed really only has one use at a wedding. Make sure that the venue even allows it since most don’t anymore, mainly due to littering violations and they also think that people will trip and fall on it.

    i wouldn’t necessarily know what it was for…  i voted to add a tag, but if it’s too much work maybe someone could make an announcement or spread the word for you.

    A quick side note, have you checked with your venue about using the birdseed?

    I ask because a lot of places don’t allow bird seed because of weeds, and of course…birds lol! So check with them first.

    But if they do, I think a little tag would be cute.

    These would be really cute tags and they’re inexpensive,

    A little tag, (print on normal paper and use those crazy scissors to fancify if you want) explaining when and what is a good thing!! Everyone doest do that anymore so a little reminder is a good idea.

    A tag might be great; the last weddng I was at the ushers told people in the aisles to throw rose petals (next to their seats) at the end… even more obvious what you were supposed to do 😉

    Mandy, I figured you could maybe write something on the back of those tags.

    Maybe, “Shower us as we walk back down the aisle as husband and wife.”

    If you want to make it clear what the birdseed is for but avoid another project, could you make a note in the programs? If you have to do them anyway, what’s a few extra explanatory sentences?

    You could put something in your programs about the birdseed and its purpose.  If you have time after everything else is done, you could always decorate the bags.

    Depending on how formal your wedding is, how about “toss me”?

    I like the tag idea…that can easily be done DIY and then tied to the bags.  Very cute. 

    I think that there was a post by a bee on this one…lavendar bags…Miss Bear Cub maybe?  I don’t know for sure, but here is a post that I did in my blog about it…and I know the inspiration was from a bee!
