A lot of venues will not allow rice because its bad for birds. You could do birdseed, or lavender buds? I never considered lavendar buds, but I saw a posting on here about them. I guess they smell good, show up well on camera, and are less expensive than rose petals. I was also thinking about ordering petals from the Petal Garden. Let us know how they turned out.

Do you want a toss? Or would getting glow sticks work for you? I think you can get a tube of them at Target for about a dollar, so that’d would provide about 8 or 10 color sticks. One bright alternative to sparklers.

Since we’ll be finishing up pictures after the ceremony I decided to have ribbon wands for the bridal party to use as we enter the reception. After each couple is introduced they will line up in the entryway with their ribbon wands and wave them wildly as we’re introduced.

(ETA: we plan on partying until the rental runs out, so we won’t be doing an official exit from the reception either!)

Tosses can be done at either place. I always thought they were at the church until I started going to my friend’s weddings, and they have all been at the exit from the reception.
