12 Stylish Ideas For An Unforgettable Wedding Exit

You’ve scored the man, the gown, and the venue of your dreams.  You’ve got your wedding party dressed, your wedding vows memorized and you’ve planned your grand entrance from top to bottom and bottom to top.  But wait.  Have you planned your grand exit?  The grand exit, also called the wedding send-off, is an ancient tradition in which guests throw rice or other items at the newly married couple. In Roman times the majority of the items tossed represented fertility and abundance meant to give the couple good luck.  Today however, wedding send-offs have become more of a reflection of the bride and grooms personality.  The these days, the objects waved, tossed, or released are more varied than ever and make for one amazing photo-op!  If you’re looking for fun, pizzazz-filled alternatives to the traditional rice send-off, consider these 12 stylish ideas for an unforgettable wedding exit!

10) Eco Dove Balloon Wedding Exit – Skylanterns.us | $15.99 for a 5 pack

Why we love: Why have a regular balloon wedding exit, when you can have a Eco Doves Helium Balloon wedding exit?!  Eco Doves are unique, memorable, and biodegradable.  Plus, a tad safer and more predictable than the real thing.  They are made of a special biodegradable plastic that decomposes quickly when in contact with sun and water.  When filled with helium they take the form of a dove, and when released they fly into the sky mimicking the flying motion of a real dove.  Due to their unique shape and construction they give the appearance of real doves flapping their wings and circling in the air.  Simple, lovely, and makes for a fantastic photo-op.

Hues You’ll Heart: Olive Green and Gold

I’ll admit, olive green isn’t the first color that comes to mind when dreaming of weddings.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore my olive green cargo pants.  And I’m certainly a fan of olives and olive oil (these both go well with my first loves, wine and cheese), but the idea of using olive green as a wedding color was not on the forefront.  However, I have most certainly changed my mind after seeing how olive greens and golds were incorporated into these stunning weddings featured below.  I love the unexpected and nontraditional element this color offers.  I also love that olive can feel au’natural and organic on it’s own, but takes on the most elegant form when matched with gold.  The decor options are endless, especially when it comes to centerpieces.  Consider using colorful olives and olive branches as table centerpieces, olive sprigs in place of ribbon, and olive oil as wedding favors.
