Hi!  We’re doing “yay flags” which are similar and since our ceremony and reception are in the same venue we will have them wave the flags during the recessional.  I don’t think it’s a huge issue and you would still get some beautiful and fun photos!

The other option would be to save them for a send off when you leave the reception if you’re having one.

I thought “send offs” were done when you leave the reception.  Or at least that is how it is done in my area.

I think its a great idea!  As long as you do note in the program to wave the ribbon as you walk back the aisle.  Maybe inform some of your family so they can take the lead.   I say this b/c a recent wedding did not have a send off either.  So as they walked down the aisle everyone was supposed to be blowing bubbles but no one knew to do that sooooo the bubbles went unblown.  What a waste.

But ribbon wands are so cute!  My fingers are sore from screwing the eye screw in the dowels just now.  And I jumped online to order my ribbon too.  Found it cheapest per yard($0.19 a yard!) at JKM Ribbon.  Here is a tutorial in case you need it!

We are doing wedding wands as well. I feel the same as you. Get the guests moving and onto the reception. We’ve decided to walk out of the church and come back in through a back door once everyone has exited the church. Our ushers will then pass out the wands, and instruct guests what to do with them. Then once we do the send off, we will go back in the church for pictures with the bridal party.
