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…
