How to Make Memorable Wedding Toss and Release
A wedding toss adds a memorable touch to
every ceremony. Rice and birdseed have typically
been traditional choices for a wedding toss.
Fresh and innovative ideas, though, have appeared
over the years for sending off the bride and
groom. These items include: fresh rose petals,
lavender buds, freeze-dried petals, rice confetti
(biodegradable), and soap bubbles. Wedding
sparklers have also gained popularity especially
for weddings near the 4th of July and other
celebrations, that also include St.
Patrick's Day Weddings.
Use Attractive Packaging for Wedding Tosses
When simple paper cones are not enough, use
colorful and elegant containers such as embroidered
silk pouches, pomander
shaped rose bags, or organza
favor bags (see pictures below). Fill
these miniature bags with your favorite scented
fillings such as rose petals, lavender, or
hydrangeas, and present them to guests as
they arrive for the ceremony. Create a beautiful
placard that says “Take One, Please,”
so guests will be sure to send you off in
the most flattering manner. Alternatively,
you may also place them on each guest's seat,
so that they can be reminded to use them after
Wedding Toss for an Indoor or Outdoor Ceremony
Whether having an indoor ceremony in a chapel
or church or an outdoor beach wedding, select
wedding toss that is appropriate for the venue.
Also, be sure to inquire with the ceremony
venue, if they allow wedding tosses, since
some vendors do not allow or discourage them
from being used. There are also some venues
that may charge a clean-up fee, so it is important
to inquire first before making that wedding
Elegant Ways to Make a Memorable Wedding
Although releasing white doves have been
traditional choices for making a wedding release,
releasing butterflies have also been a top
favorite. Beyond doves and butterflies, unconventional
brides have also chosen to use more exciting
ideas such as bubbles, streamers, or even
balloons. Wedding releases can either be conventional
or hip and modern as long as they hold a symbolic
and special meaning for the bride and groom.
