There’s a problem with tossing petals down the aisle and we’re here to show you the solution: the flower girl wand. Bur first, let me explain. The flower girl typically tosses petals down the aisle ahead of the bride at the ceremony. It’s cute, it looks pretty, and that’s her number one job. Easy, right? Well, it was all unicorns and sunshine until wedding venues began prohibiting it, for a multitude of reasons.
Rose petals, particularly the real kind, are most often selected for tossing because they look best and smell incredible; faux petals are great, too, and they’re super cheap. But what has happened in the past few years is, churches and other places of worship have figured out that couples aren’t cleaning up up after these petals. And when there are multiple weddings occurring in the same space following your ceremony, it can be a pain for venue staff to clean up since they have more important jobs to do (and only a short amount of time to do them).
