20 Fun & Creative Wedding Send Off Ideas


There are few moments that I love more than the wedding send off. It's fun, whimsical, and involves the entire guest list in the celebration. But where does it come from? The wedding send off is a tradition that dates all the way back to ancient Rome. Newlyweds were traditionally "showered" in rice to bring them good fortune and fertility. So it's no wonder it's still such a common nuptial practice. But what if you're not looking to add to your family any time soon? Or you just want to toss something that you wouldn't find in your pantry? Look no further! We've found 20 great wedding send off ideas to make your grand exit even grander.

1. Glitter

For the bride who loves to sparkle! Handfuls of over-sized glitter add an element of glamour to any wedding send off.

2. Snow

No winter wonderland wedding would be complete without a snow send off! If you don't feel like freezing and being pelted with the real stuff (we don't blame you) give your guests fake flurries to toss.

3. Pom-Poms

Cute, soft, and oh-so quirky! Pom-poms add the perfect texture and pop of color to your wedding send off.

Perhaps the easiest one to clean up, since the birds will do it for you! This eco friendly option is a popular replacement for rice.
