I posted about this like 2 days ago lol!  we are probably going with rose petals, because of the burn ban and my, uh, fear of sparklers… *ahem*

I think rose petals or confetti would show up great in pictures.  I think bubbles might be too clear.

Are you lining the drive with anything? Maybe you could have candles in a jar, or string lights. That way your bubbles and streamers show up.

What if you had a black light on and sprayed or painted the streamers so they glowed in the dark? I think there are certain types of glow paint that will glow after the black light or natural light has prepped them for long enough.

We used dried lavender since the venue nixed sparklers and bubbles and said it had to be biodegradable. It actually showed up pretty nicely in pictures, like snow.

Ignore the weird faces. Running through showers of lavender ain’t easy. :p 

 

ETA: Lining the drive for lighting is a good idea – they make some super realistic looking LED candles if you’re worried about people knocking them over.

I agree, if you lined the drive petals or lavender would show up pics

We had our grand exit in the dark in Texas, too.  We used bubbles.  So far, I’ve only seen one photo of our exit, but the bubbles showed up great!  Here it is:

I can’t share the photo because it’s of a friend’s wedding, not mine, but she had AMAZING photos of their nighttime bubble exit. They were seriously so cool. Even on my own little digital camera, I captured some great ones.

I LOVE the glowstick idea…but I think bubbles will look nice, too.
