  • poll: Shower us with petals as we enter reception?

    Sure why not!

    Could be ok, but guests might not be into it.

    This idea seems wierd, so no.

    Not sure, I'll just leave a comment

    Well as for things not being strewn on the ground, there are still the always-popular bubbles if you don’t want to forgo the grand exit! Or even sparklers, if they’ll permit it.

    I’m having a hard time picturing how the petals coming into the reception would work, since usually everyone is seated when the bride and groom enter…what would the set-up look like? If there was a way for you to set up some kind of ‘path’ as you walk to the reception site I think it would be really cool! Another option I’ve seen is for people to do the ‘grand exit’ from the actual reception at the end of the night, assuming you can swing leaving earlier and have someone to take care of the break-down.

    Our venue did not permit flower petals on the wood floor.  They said the petals stain the wood.  I have always like the bubble idea.  You can also have ribbon wands that people wave.  If I had heard of this when I was planning, I would have done the ribbon wands.

    Hmm, that would become messy. So I say no.

    Glad you got it worked out.  I didn’t think it was weird.  But wasn’t sure if you’d be able to do it at the reception.
