It looks like birdseed in this bowl, and I assume you could put whatever you like and just let guests fill something (what would it be if you don’t want the expense of sachets?) …
Would you like birdseed thrown at you?
At our grand exit from church … we are having all guests gather and we leave first. I need something still …

Pretty photo but many churches do not allow birdseed as it can become very slippery. Plus what about it getting stuck in your hair, veil, dress details? What about using rose petals instead? http://www.fiftyflowers.com has some at a reasonable price. A little of those go a long way and they look great in photos.

this looks like lavender actually! and thats what i’m doing but i’m putting in sachets! if you don’t want the expense of sachets (which i got 50 fr. michaels for only $9 (using 50% off coupon) then use the little brown or white bags thats like $7-10 for a 100!

or Oriental Trading 50 for $10.00. If you get free postage you’re golden! They sell them in organza and silk. Sweet 2″ x2″ bags with satin draw string
But, my vote is this….if you are set on birdseed, use it as a favor…Don’t throw it. Some places don’t allow it. It could get stuck in your eye or hair…

We used bird seed (we decided on this the night before) and it worked out pretty well. Yes, I did get it all in my hair and down my dress, which was a little annoying, but our original plan of releasing (eco-friendly) balloons didn’t work out because of cost ($1.19 to blow up the balloons??).
I just bent over and shook my head a bit and most of the bird seed came out, shook my dress, but some was stuck. At the end of the night when I unlaced a pile of bird seed fell on the floor! haha

That’s definitely lavender, which would also be neat because when people step on it, it releases the scent.
Have you heard of eco-fetti? I think that’s what we’ll be using.

Lavendar would be so lovely – though you still get the chance of things getting stuck in your hair and dress (of course, at least you’ll smell lovely)! I would check first to make sure you’re allowed to throw anything!
I do like the idea of having it in a bowl and choosing to get some with the spoon instead of having individual sachets! It makes for a lovely presentation.
