We've all seen those incredible photos of couples exiting their ceremony or reception with sparklers, bubbles, confetti or rice. What you may not know is that those moments have usually been carefully orchestrated behind-the-scenes! Here are a few tips:
- -Before you order anything, make sure your venue allows it. Many venues restrict confetti or sparklers for clean-up reasons or fire hazard reasons.
- -If you're tossing something outside, make sure it's environmentally friendly. Rice can be very hazardous to birds. A better alternative is bird seed or a special type of rice that crushes underfoot and dissolves in water.
- -Recruit some "ringers" to start the trend of the bubbles/confetti/etc. Otherwise you'll be down the aisle before anyone has tossed their confetti!
- -Check everything beforehand and unwrap it or open up any seals. Many times bubbles come with a silver seal that will impede timely bubble-making as you head down the aisle.
