Brides: you’re making a grand entrance at your ceremony, but what about a grand exit? A ceremony exit is an opportunity to engage guests as you walk down the aisle for the first time as a married couple. Traditionally, guests would toss rice at the bride and groom; today, though, rice is on the outs. I’ve heard this is because rice can harm birds when ingested, but Snopes reports that it is a slip-and-fall hazard for guests. To stay on the safe side, skip rice and opt instead for one of these creative ceremony exit ideas. We’ve gathered up nine of our favorite ideas to inspire you today including a few that aren’t tossed (which means couples in all ceremony venues can participate!) PLUS, we’re announcing the next prize in this week’s giveaway lineup! You won’t want to miss it…

Hello + Happy Thursday! Today we’re talking about how to welcome guests to your wedding. When you’re a wedding guest, it feels nice to be welcomed and included, right? Today we’re going to show you how to make sure your guests feel welcomed, whether they’re traveling from across the country or around the corner. When A & I tied the knot, we were blessed by the number of guests who traveled far and wide to attend. Our wedding took place in Michigan, yet we had guests from Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, New York, Illinois, and Texas – that’s eight states! Luckily, all of our out-of-town guests previously lived in the area, so they already knew the best places to eat, where to stay, and the best places to see downtown. What about your wedding? Will there be out of town guests who are unfamiliar with the area? Are there things you can do to make them feel a little more comfortable? How can you make local guests feel just as welcome? We have all the answers – and more! – in today’s post. We’ll tell you how to welcome your guests with twelve helpful tips including DIY wedding welcome bags, a clever ceremony program idea, transporting to and from the reception, and more!
