Alternatives to Throwing Rice at Weddings

Every bride and groom wants their wedding to be memorable! One of the best ways to ensure your special day stands out is to make your exit a unique one. So, instead of having guests throw generic old rice as you make your way out of the festivities, get a little creative! Here are some fun alternatives to get you thinking…

Weddings

Bird seed

Rice is rather harmful to our avian friends, and since whatever you throw up in the air will eventually end up hanging around on the ground, bird seed is an eco-friendly  alternative. Package it up in pretty little packets for your guests to grab on their way out of the ceremony.

Lavender

This is another eco-friendly alternative, and it smells divine! The lavender can also compliment a variety of color schemes and will look beautiful in your wedding photos.

Flower petals

When guests throw flower petals up into the air they’ll flutter slowly to the ground, and this makes for a lovely photo op! Whip up some little paper cones like the ones below to hand out to guests as they leave the ceremony venue.

Sprinkles

This is a really fun and affordable option and will make for some very colorful wedding photos! Just be careful to watch the weather. If it is humid or raining and the sprinkles land on light-coloured clothing, there is a likely chance the colors will bleed into the material. This would be especially distressing for the bride!

Sequins

This is a great way to add some sparkle! They’ll shimmer as they fall through the air and will add a magical touch to your photos.

Glow sticks

This is such a fun idea for evening weddings, as it photographs so well!
