If they allow petals, maybe even little wild flowers? Also depends on if you want stuff thrown at you or just something to make it more fun than them just waving you off?

My first thought was ribbon wands. Strands of ribbon, lace, etc on a stick and guests wave them. Easy to make or order off Etsy. 

If your exit is at night and dark, I worry it won’t have a great impact for pictures. When I went to Pinterest to find that picture I also came across this one with long glow sticks. It’s definitely fun, quirky and different.

I want to do a lavender send of! It smells divine and looks pretty.

You just break the little petals off the lavender and then have your guests throw like they would birdseed/confetti/whatever.

And metallic velvet ribbon that looks glittery

Check out Ecofetti.  It melts as soon as it gets wet or blows away.  My daughters venue did not allow regular confetti but after showing them the ecofetti, they said okay.
