Want to make a grand exit at your ceremony, but your venue doesn’t allow you to throw rice or confetti? You’re not alone. Many venues are saying no to messy or potentially hazardous ceremony tosses. (Mine wouldn’t allow us to, either!) But that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. See Jessica’s Ask Emmaline question about an alternative to throwing rice:
Hi Emmaline! I had my heart set on our guests tossing rice in the air as we exited the ceremony, but our venue forbids it. My mom suggested we do something different. Is there an alternative to throwing rice?
Jessica, great question! We have the perfect alternative to throwing rice: ribbon wands! We love these ribbon wands because they make NO MESS. Plus, your ribbon wands can include a bell so you hear wedding bells ringing as guests wave them in the air. Instead of a quick toss of rice with cleanup and hassle, these ribbon wands from The Blush Market are customized in your colors. You can even reuse them as you make your reception grand entrance! Here, take a look at some of the colors available (there are TONS of color combinations):
