    We will be staying at the same location as our reception, so I don’t think we will have a big exit. When we’re tired we’ll just go upstairs.   πŸ™‚

    We are exiting with sparklers and riding away in a horse and carriage.

    Originally, we were going to use my dad’s ’67 Chevelle BUT then we saw past how bada** (FI’s take on it lol but i do agree) it would be and thought about how after a night of drinking, it would not be a good idea to say the least. Now, we switched the horse and carriage from the church to the reception to the exit after the reception and the antique car for after the ceremony.

    Any thoughts for you?

    We didn’t have an exit! We danced until the very last song and then went upstairs to our hotel room (our reception was in the hotel).

    We left after our guests exited the building because we wanted to enjoy every minute of the reception.  We then rode in a shuttle bus with some of our wedding party to the hotel, then crashed soon after!  lol

    I plan on walking across the street to the bar with everyone who’s still willing and able.

    We are exiting with sparklers and a friend is taking us in his antique car to the hotel.

    I think we’re going to do sparklers! And then my hubby will drive us away to the hotel I suppose. I’m not budgeting transportation for our wedding. I honestly love to ride in his car, and it’s pretty awesome, so we’ll just do that! πŸ™‚

    @PitBulLover:

    this is what we were planning on doing before our original venue waffled — we were going to hop on our sail boat πŸ™‚ ..now that we’re using a different venue over on the western arm where the water is more shallow, we will probably have to come up with a different plan.

    We’re likely going to be leaving by a regular old jeep or suv, unless we can convince one of the pilots at the club to fly us down the lake in their Otter πŸ˜›

    We’re walking from the tent where our reception will be held to the guest bedroom in Fi’s parent’s house or their RV.  Most of our bridal party is camping out in the back field in tents.  I imagine most of our guests will be doing that, too.

    We had everyone dance to “The Piano man” in a big group dance as the last dance.  Then the lights went up and people started cleaning up and we had planned on just walking back to our hotel.  It was kind of a bad way to end though because everyone kept asking me questions right when the lights came up, like where the shuttle was going to pick them up to go back to the hotel (right outside the reception hall, duh!) My husband also had to pay the caterer for the bar bill and pick up the leftover cake from the kitchen before we could walk out of the reception.  So all this stuff kind of spoiled the specialness of the night.  If I could do it over I would have had us do some sort of fancy exit with bubbles or something and then walked back to our hotel from there.  People could have figured out the clean-up/shuttle/caterer bill/and leftovers on their own!

    We were the last to leave (besides some of my wonderful family that helped pack up all the gifts/decorations) and I drove us away in my husband’s truck.
