Most couples are looking for something unique for their wedding exit. Whether you are just tired of sparklers or if your venue doesn’t allow sparklers (Hello! Drunk people + fire don’t mix) or you’re planning on having multiple exits, here are 10 other great wedding exit options for you that are picturesque!
(PS I have linked Amazon sources!)
1 . Bubbles
Bubbles might just be my favorite exit accessory. They photograph SO well and you can feel the magic. I suggest NOT using bubbles that people have to blow with their mouths, because they will either be cheering or blowing bubbles–not both. So you’ll either have silence or no bubbles. lol! I recommend getting a bubble machine or buying these bubble guns for them to use.
Bonus: your guests have the time of their lives and there will be plenty of boomerangs to prove it. See more from Angela and Robby’s wedding here.
Ribbon sticks are a great alternative to sparklers! I love the way you can customize them to your wedding theme! Just be sure that your guests are spaced out far enough so that you don’t get poked in the eye while you’re making your getaway ;)
Confetti is another FAVORITE!!! Honestly, you just can’t beat it! Be sure to get the biodegradable kind! Bonus: you can use this for your ceremony exit, your last dance, and even getting ready! (some venues with turf do not allow this because of the mess factor, so be sure to ask!)
Tamara and David used confetti AND rose petals for their wedding! See more from their wedding here
Rose petals are another favorite (can you tell I have a lot of favorites?). I love seeing these for ceremony exits and reception exits! Bonus: You get to use extras for epic kissy photos.
Glow sticks are not my top choice, but they are fun and very affordable. They don’t photograph as well as the ones listed above, but we make it work!
Let your guests cheer you on as you make your way out the door and to your getaway car!
Are you a Star Warz fanatic? These are perfect for you and photograph really well.
Lavender is probably the least photographic option, but it smells amazing and is so fun for your guests to throw. Some venues are very particular about the types of exits you are allowed to have, and lavender is almost always allowed! Bonus(?): You’ll have lavender in places you didn’t know you had 😂
These look SO fun and photograph so well! A lot of venues don’t allow confetti, but these no-mess streamers give you that confetti feel without the littering! It’s a win-win

Bonus: Have your band lead you out!
All in all, don’t be afraid to do something different and set your own trend!
