Lavender Toss Bags — Ceremony Exit Ideas

Every couple ought to have a grand exit after the ceremony! A grand exit is where the couple walks down the aisle together — now married! — and guests applaud. This is also the time when guests throw things — like rice, petals, or lavender — at the newlyweds. I’m not sure why throwing things at the newlyweds equals festivity, but it does and that’s just the way it is. ;) We’ve seen flags waved, bubbles blown, bells rung, and ribbons twirled. We’ve even seen confetti popped into the air. (See the best ceremony exit ideas here.) We recommend a ceremony exit because it’s a fun way to kick off the reception.

One of our favorite ceremony toss ideas is lavender because it’s natural, organic, earthy, and exudes the loveliest fragrance. Our friends over at Four Sisters Farm Soap Co. make it easy for your guests to toss lavender by pre–packing it into these sweet muslin toss bags. This is today’s handpicked item of the day and you can find out the full details below.

Lavender Toss Bags

While Four Sisters Farm Soap Co. usually focuses on soap favors, they’re now offering lavender toss bags because they’re such a delicate and fragrant wedding detail. They fill natural muslin bags with french organic lavender buds for guests to toss as the newlyweds walk down the aisle. We recommend placing these bags in a large basket at your ceremony entrance so guests can take one as they arrive. If you prefer, you can leave a toss bag at each guest’s seat with a simple tag telling them to, “Please toss as the newlyweds exit the ceremony”.
