Monday Funday: Wedding Send-Offs

Although the goal is to have so much fun at your wedding you’ll never want it to end–it eventually will have to. So why not make the most of it and get in one last fun moment with your guests! Traditionally, the wedding couple has rice thrown at them as they made their exit, but there are so many new fun ways to send the happy couple off, and they all look great in photos!

Sparklers have become an extremely popular option. Especially if you are making your grand exit in the evening, these are sure to light up the night!
