Sending off the bride and groom into the night of their wedding may be one of the most magical moments of the entire day. Even though we are all exhausted from the happy tears that came as they said their vows, stuffing our faces with appetizers and desserts, and of course dancing the night away; we pull it together for one last “hurrah”! And for the bride and groom, running through the sparklers, bubbles, or confetti is one of the best feelings in the world. Because you know after that moment you get to spend the rest of forever with each other.
With all that said, I think you get the point. Your send off is pretty dang important! Just like the rest of your wedding, it should be planned uniquely and specifically to your relationship. If you’re more of an outdoorsy couple, maybe toss seeds, or you want a more magical moment, sparklers or bubbles are another option! For such an awesome moment, you need some options! So here I am to give you a few unique ideas for your perfect send off!
With fall around the corner, tossing leaves would be the perfect way to send off the bride and groom! Just imagine walking through a cascade of bright fall leaves on a crisp October day. And if you have a little bit of extra time on your hands, you can use a hole punch to create biodegradable confetti! Either way, it is a gorgeous (and totally free) way to send off a bride and groom!
Okay, hear me out! I know exactly what you are thinking, and no I am not suggesting you get some dried oregano for your guests to throw at you. There are a lot of gorgeous flowering herbs that you could use! Lavender is probably the most popular, but there is also Bee Balm, Dill, Rosemary, Spearmint and so much more! No matter what you wedding colors are, there is an herb for you!
If you are more into the party scene, or just want an epic exit, light wands are for you! Flashing neon lights surrounding you as you run into the night, that honestly just sounds like the beginning of the after party! It is a super fun way to involve light in the send off, and give your guests a fun party favor to take home!
One of the most unique ideas I have seen to this day is seeds! Bird seeds don’t only give you a fairy tale send off, but it also provides a little snack for the critters in the area. Bird seed is especially helpful for our feathery friends during winter months, when there is not as much available for them to eat!
The adrenaline that comes with being sent off into the night is indescribable! It truly is a once in a lifetime experience that you will never want to forget. I would be thrilled to be part of your send off, and capture the special moment with your family and loved ones wishing you a happily ever after! Let’s connect and make your dreams a reality!
