Favorite Wedding Send-Offs

There are so many fun and creative ways for guests to send you off at your wedding! Today we would like to share new ways for guests to say their farewells and well wishes to the newlyweds:

A sparkler send-off is a fun option for evening weddings that makes great photos!  This option can be pricey so be sure to keep that in mind when considering budget. This choice really creates a magical environment as the special day comes to an end!

For anyone who keeps up with the latest in the wedding world, this next option is new stylish trend might appeal to them. Using ribbons that complement the chosen color scheme ties into the theme nicely. Not to mention, this might appeal to anyone who has a knack for DIY!

Couples with strong school spirit will love this idea! Have guests wave pom poms in their school colors as they exit the ceremony or reception for everyone to hop in with school pride.

Get creative and have some fun by lighting up the night with a glow stick send-off!

This idea is great in trend and also for the environment. Toss colored recycled paper confetti as the newlyweds leave the venue. It’s a fun way for guests to say goodbye in an eco-friendly fashion.

Wedding send-offs are the “grand finale” of the wedding day. Therefore, it’s important to make every lasting moment count, especially the couple’s final moments from their special day. Unique send-offs like these will without question make newlyweds feel special while concluding their wedding celebration.

Including Family In Your Wedding

Getting married is one of the most important days in a person’s life, and many couples want to honor members of their family by including them in aspects of the wedding. There are many different ways to have family be a part of a wedding and we have put together some of our favorites:

One great way to show appreciation to both families is by setting up pictures of them at the reception. It’s often old wedding pictures around the cake, but any meaningful photos work just as well. We love this idea of bringing both families full circle to the present.

Another wonderful way to include family is having members of the couple’s families give a reading. It can be a famous romantic poem or it can be something they wrote themselves. Either way, it can be a very personal and special moment during the ceremony.

A gift for the parents of the bride and groom is a sweet gesture from the newlyweds that gives thanks for their love and support throughout the years. Personalized photo albums, gift certificate for a special dinner or a weekend away are just some examples we love.

Weddings are about bringing not just two people together, but two families. Make sure to honor those that have always been there for you by including them in your special day, and it’s sure to lead to lasting memories.
