I was in the wedding party for a wedding that didn’t have anything thrown. And it worked out great for photos. The families and wedding party knew they needed to clap and cheer and started doing it when they saw the happy couple. Everyone else joined in! I think it would work fine as long as you have a group in on it who will get the cheer started. 🙂

You can have someone organize the guests to line up inside and form the exit.


If you can control the lighting, you could dim the lights and give the guests glo sticks.

I think you can just have them clapping and cheering. For example, in Bridesmaids, when she made her grand exit, they were all empty-handed and it looked fine.

I’m sure lots of clapping would be fine… or what about some kind of noisemakers… like little bells they could ring or something?

we were the last to leave our reception… no big exit for us! haha.

People (well the younger people anyway) made an arch corridor with their arms and we walked under. Totally not organised as far as I know (unless the bridal party organised it without me knowing), it just happened.

I’ve been to only one wedding, out like 50, where there was a legit send off.  My cousin’s wedding everyone had a drink and we toasted them as they climbed into the limo.

My son doesn’t want to give the anyone anything to throw (birdseed) or to have them blow bubbles at them as they exit so, instead he’s going to ask our Pastor to offer a prayer over the new couple as a send off and exit. Love the idea of the clapping, may have to talk to my son about it and let them decide.
