Nothing, we left at the end, and those that were still there to say goodbye waved us off. Our wedding started at 5 and ended at 10:30 so we didn’t do an early getaway.

Go on Pinterest and look at Biodegradable confetti. It actually disolves with water leaving no trace. This way you don’t have to worry about a messy clean up after the big day.

We had bubbles blown at us outside becuase the church didn’t allow for anything to be thrown.

This video is a great reason not to throw anything at a wedding.

Nothing. And I would check with your venue before making plans.

I’ve only been to one wedding where they had the guests “throw” something- bubbles. And honestly it was a bit of a pain because they had a receiving line and then all the guests had to wait outside for them to come out so we could blow the bubbles.  

Also, most weddings I have gone to don’t have a formal exit for the B&G.

At my wedding we had everyone throw white rose petals as we walked out. The florist gave us bags of rose petals. I think it was about $100 total for the rose petals for 85ish guests. Walking through the rose petals is an awesome memory and the photos turned out amazing!!

We made streamer wands.  They are kind of like ribbon wands but with really long streamers people will throw at us.  We really didn’t like the idea of something being thrown at us.  Even bubbles sounded sticky and gross.   I liked the idea of ribbon wands but they were too short in most pictures I saw.  Really loved streamer tosses but we couldn’t leave a mess so this was the best option.   They turned out really cute and the supplies to make 100 only costs 20 bucks

Nothing 🙁 We weren’t allowed to have bubbles or confetti at the church or reception hall. I would have loved it though!

We also are not allowed.  I think it looks nice in pictures, but I am not torn up about it either.  Someone I knew had their guests write well wishes on little paper airplanes and they threw them after the ceremony (I’d be a little nervous with projectiles like that with my family lol) but the pictures were great!

@EffieTrinket:  Ha, the first thing that came to mind when I saw the thread title was tomatoes.  I think we’ll do bubbles, if anything.  That’s the only thing I’ve seen done at weddings I’ve attended, now that I think about it.  At most weddings I’ve attended over the past few years, we haven’t thrown or waved anything.

The church only allowed biodegradable confetti, so we went with lavender. Pros: it was cheap and it smelled great. Cons: it’s very small and light, so it didn’t toss or photograph very well. I think you need a lot more than what we had to make it feel like you’re being showered by it.

We had lavendar.  We put a litte packet on the back of the programs and had it thrown at us after the kiss and walking back down the aisle.
