You could have paper cones with rose petals in them maybe. Like these:

@Erika_Meep:  That is super cute. I don’t think we will be throwing anything, but if so..that’s what we will do.

I’ve seen people do things like petals, confetti, or glitter (which I wouldn’t recommend. Who thought glitter was a good idea???!!! I bet the bride was washing it out of her hair for weeks!). I even saw a TV show where people threw small stuffed pugs (because apparently the bride and groom had/loved pugs… but who wants to be pelted with 100 stuffed animals after they’re married??). But I would make sure to check with your venue first. I really wanted to do little cones of confetti or something, but our venue won’t allow us to throw anything, except the flower girls tossing petals (and they have to be fresh petals).

@JlovesM: I think it’s really cute too! My fiance and I are definitely considering doing this simply because it would be fairly quick to put them together and would add a fun touch to the ceremony for the guests. 🙂

I was thinking about adding a little message like the upcoming picture to them as well:

I am going to old fashioned way and trowing bird seed, putting some in little purple bags like this.

Don’t forget that oats, birdseed, and other food “projectiles” are great food for the birdies, but also a HUGE attraction for squirrels, and also for rats. Yep, rats. Make sure you check with your venue and ask about cleanup rules or extra cleaning fees. You really don’t want today’s birdseed to become tomorrow’s rat buffet, especially if there’s another wedding booked.

We’re doing ribbon wands! : )

People have also done flags, sparklers, flower (esp. rose) petals (dried, silk, or fresh), butterflies, confetti/sparkles, rice, birdseed, herbs (ex. lavender), etc.!
