Beach Ball Party

Having a beach wedding? How fun are these colors? Have your guests throw beach balls as the officiant announces you Mr. & Mrs. Photo by: Emily Crenca Photography


Is your style burlap? Quilts? Cowboy boots? Then cowbells would be the perfect ending to your big day.

Tie these fragrant blooms up in cute monogrammed muslin bags so your guests can take a little extra home to put in their linen closets.

Military Swords & Sabers

For those who have served in the military, a sword or saber arch is an honorable, traditional way to exit the wedding ceremony. 

Sparkler Exit

We love this classic, glitzy exit. Pro tip: Purchase extra-long sparklers to ensure you have enough time to capture a sweet shot like this one before the sparks die out.

Ribbon Wands

Ribbon wands are another new, fun wedding exit trend. Add a personal touch by writing your last name and wedding date on one piece of ribbon in each wand.

Elevator Exit

So maybe you don’t want to throw anything or the venue won’t let guests litter their hallways or doorsteps with confetti. An elevator exit still makes a dramatic photograph. Don't forget to kiss!


A classic — but photo-worthy for sure!

Glow Sticks

Perfect for a nighttime exit, glow sticks are a fun, off-the-cuff idea that could also double as favors for your guests.

Smoke Bombs

Talk about wow effect! Keep this a surprise and wow all your guests with this dramatic exit.

Flower Petals

If your style is pretty and classy, then this exit is a must. Plus, you can choose petals in a variety of colors to match your wedding theme. Dress them up by pouring them in folded paper cones. Learn how to make paper petal cones >>

Spirit Fingers

Fun and budget-friendly, high-fiving friends and family as you run through a tunnel of 'spirit fingers' makes for a great photo. 

Floating Lanterns

How incredible would it be to release floating lanterns to mark the beginning of your marriage? Pro tip: Check to make sure this is allowed in your city/county.


For an ultra-elegant affair, consider having guests toast to your new life together as you walk back down the aisle.


Why not add even more bling to your wedding? Warning: this could be difficult to clean up but would make for great photos!


Wanna bypass the glitter? Confetti is an easier option and you can coordinate the colors to match your wedding color scheme. You can also buy eco-friendly confetti packs!
