Grand exit or sneak away? Let's talk about how to exit your wedding reception.
There are many different thoughts on this idea. From staging a grand exit with sparklers, bubbles, glow sticks etc, or maybe just sneak away sometime during dancing so that you don't have to deal with 150 jumbled good byes.
It's really up to you, and what your style is. But to give some ideas, here are some fun ideas on how to exit your wedding reception
Expert Tip: Buy extras of the single serving bubble blowers as they are guaranteed to be a hit with kids!
You can find lots of different types of wedding day bubbles here. (affiliate link)
Expert tip: make sure to check with your venue on if sparklers are allowed as many have a no sparkler policy because of the fire danger as well as the amount of smoke that can find it's way into the venue. Also, while the photos are definitely pretty, keep in mind that sparklers + drunk guests may be a bad combo.
Check out this fun heart shaped sparkler. I've never seen these at a wedding, but they could be really fun!
This is the new idea behind the old school option of bird seed. Too much bird seed can hurt the birds as well as just make a mess. Instead, dry a petal or leaf of a plant you like ( like Lavender!) and have your guests toss that toward you as you leave. And if you put it in a cute bag, it can double as the wedding favor!
Lavender seeds also double as a fun wedding favor too. You can get lavender seeds here
What is funner than having a specialty car ready to take you away at the end of the night? Even if you decide to not do a big send off, having a car service is always special (and doesn't include asking someone who's been drinking to drive you to your hotel!)
Get a fun Just Married banner to put on the back of your car too! It's 100% easier to remove than the paint on the windows!
Dance the night away
Want to forgo the exit all together? Then stay and party on the dance floor
Expert tip: Even if you want to stay to the end, don't plan on participating in clean up. Make your exit (even quietly) before the lights go on and the brooms come out. You spent all year planning the day, you should trust in your bridal party to clean up and let you leave during the peak!
