I am torn between several options for our guests to throw during our recessional after our ceremony leading into our reception. We are having an outdoor ceremony right beside our reception tent. Also, we are doing a sparkler grand exit at the end of the night from the reception. Here are the options: Rose petals, biodegradable confetti or bubbles. I am kind of thinking against bubbles because people look kind of wierd in pictures blowing them and it’s not very colorful for my spring wedding (colors hot pink and light green). The confetti would be a good idea since it is biodegradeable and we might not have to clean it up and rose petals are always a classic. Any thoughts?

Bubbles. The others require cleanup.

Have you thought about lavender? That’s what we’re using as a toss, and no clean up since it hides in the grass. But if it’s color in photos you’re looking for, that won’t really work. I suggest bubbles simply b/c you do not want to worry about cleaning up confetti. Even if it is biodegradeable or water soluble, your venue most likely won’t want it laying all over, and someone will have to use a water hose to dissolve it or pick up all the pieces.

I’d suggest bubbles, but make sure that the soap won’t stain your dress or the bridesmaid dresses. Some fabric types are sensitive to soap. It would suck to end up with bubble splatters all over your dress. (PS, another option is to have guests wave ribbon wands.)

I like bubbles, but I too wonder if they would stain anyone’s dress? I voted rose petals.

I voted rose petals though I am planning on doing bubbles.

I voted rose petals. I think it’s classic and elegant oh and fun!
I agree about the bubbles…I made tages for ours then nixed them.
At least at our venue we can use anything the mowers can chop up afterward so maybe yours has the same policy? And then you wouldn’t have to clean anything up.

Yeah, double check what the venue says. Mine says nothing may be thrown.
