So I just found out that my venue doesn’t allow any sort of material for a send-off that will create debris on the floor – this includes sequins, sparklers, rice, beans, even flower petals, real and fake (Not even for the flower girl! :()…They allow bubbles outside, but by the time we leave it’s going to be dark out and bubbles will just be pointless.
Does anyone have any ideas for an alternative to a wedding send-off?
Your help would be much appreciated!

This stuff is great! It dissolves with water so all you have to do is spray the area with a hose and it’s gone!

@julies1949: I love this idea! I didn’t even think about glow sticks! I did see something on Pintrest about glow-in-the-dark bubbles, but thought it probably wouldn’t be best with the NEON stains on my dressing. I’l have to look into the glow sticks 🙂
Absolutely NO sparklers 🙁 Anything that can create a mess on the ground. If it wasn’t for the gorgeous view, I would change venues they are so stingy. We can’t even have flowers (fake or otherwise) for my flower girl!
I think we might be able to bypass the rules with this, but since it’s a nighttime send off, it might not have that much effect for photos 🙁

NO BUBBLES!!!! I was at a wedding 2 years ago and the bubbles stained my lovely emerald green silk dress. Bubbles are the worst!
We’re doing ribbon wands: http://pinterest.com/pin/43487952622624673/
But I do love that glow stick idea! Oriental Trading has them in bulk for cheap.

A balloon or floating lantern release? As you pass by the guests let theirs go, kinda like “The Wave” effect. Lanters would be pretty on the night sky!

@CarolF: I originally thought about the lanterns, since some vendors on Etsy offer biodegradable ones, but my mom made a good point that since we are right next to the fire department and the ocean is practically at our doorstep…might not go over so well lol.
I would love ribbon wands!! They are so pretty! But it might not have the best effective at night for photos 🙁
