Nope.  I’m not allowed to throw anything at our venue.

I’m not planning on it but I know that my mum and sister are secretly going to be packing some rice for some after ceremony photos. It’s a tradition in our family and, like you said, there’s no difference to birds eating rice from the ground in the centre of town to them eating rice that was thrown at a wedding.

You’re correct- there is no danger that the birdies will blow up after eating rice.  Just be careful about the pavement- maybe guide any elderly guests to walk around where the rice has been thrown- because the pavement can get slippery.

I found this really cute idea to make little petal baskets for the isle seats so they can toss petals when we walk! That way its parishable and won’t get stuck in my massive hair 🙂 Think of the cool pics with a shower of flowers as he carries me down the isle!

I would love to have something but we’re not allowed to at my church (or we have to pay a HUGE fee for someone to clean it up).

A word of advice for anyone doing birdseed though:

WASH IT! Friends were married in Oct & painstakingly put a handful of birdseed in little organza bags with pretty little bows. When it came time to throw it there was dust everywhere & the Groom’s tux was all dusty.
