I’ll be having my ceremony and reception in the same place. When you say exit, are you referring to the reception exit or the ceremony exit? I’m a bit confused with what you’re asking. Our ceremony will be immediately followed by a cocktail hour, and then followed by the reception. Our exit from the reception will more than likely be with the guests holding sparklers for us as we leave.

We did pictures between the ceremony and reception, so the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. At the end of the evening we did a sparkler exit.

I was concerned about this too, we are having ceremony with reception immediately after. I wanted to do the wands while walking back down the aisle but my wedding planner advised me that it is a very short walk and could end up a bit awkward. So I gave up te exit, we will there with everyone else until the end, and we ae staying the hotel so the exit thing seemed to complicated for us. I hope you get some good suggestions here.

Hi Amy in 43026  🙂  I’m Kristen in 43065!

 

Anyway, we’re just going to have cones of rose petals for people to toss as we walk back up the aisle, but that’s it.  I think it’s okay to try to orchestrate an exit if you want to have one for leaving your reception.  I might have sparklers later on too, but I’m not sure I trust my drunk friends with fire.

We are having our ceremony and reception at the same venue. Our ceremony is on the top floor terrace of a new hotel which overlooks KU’s campus. Following the ceremony we will be having a cocktail hour in a lounge called the All Seasons Den in the hotel on the main floor, and our reception will be under the first floor in a ballroom. That said, we will be able to do our entrances separately so it works out perfectly!

We too are having it all at one place. NO FANCY exit after the wedding or reception. I want to stay until the very end of the reception, so that seemed silly to me. My reception is in the evening as well and it just doesn’t seem feasible.

I’ve seen other bees use the flower petals in cones in this situation and it made for great photos as the bride and groom walked out after the wedding.

@Amy43026:  Aww!  That sounds fun… where are you getting married?

 

 

@furtureffcaptwife: I think entrance ribbons is fine, but I have to ask – why do you want it so badly?  Is it for photo ops?  Because I think giving props to guests as the night goes on is fun too… like dancefloor props, you know?

@KristenGotMarried:We are getting married at The Blackwell Hotel, I love it:) how about you?

 

 

@furtureffcaptwife:How big is your bridal party, maybe they could be announced and walk in with the wands then form a little line on each side for when you two are announced…

@furtureffcaptwife: I agree with you. I saw as REALLY super cute DIY for ribbon wands that I have been dying to do, but my ceremony and reception are also at the same place and IU honestly don’t know how I’m gonna make it all work out. I think I might still make some ribbon wands and tell my bridal party and close family when I would “Ideally” like them to be waved and hope tht they remember and the guest follow suite.
