Leaving your wedding reception is more than the rice and bird seed of your parents’ wedding – there’s a lot of time, effort, and planning that goes into choosing how you leave your wedding. A wedding exit has to have pizzazz and flair. It needs to really be a “WOW!” moment. And not just for the camera, although we are always game for a great getaway! This needs to be your moment to shine. It’s the last thing you’ll do at your wedding, and driving away with your new spouse is the first thing you’ll do as a married couple after your reception is over. So make it memorable! Exit your reception with a bang and enter your marriage in style. We’ve compiled some of our favorite getaways to give you some inspiration as you plan your big exit – or big entrance into marriage (however you want to look at it).

LET SPARKS FLY

Sparklers are always a classic. Few people attending a wedding will turn down a sparkler for the getaway and it has become a very popular, and beautifully photographic, way to leave in style. This entrance into marriage is great for those who always burn bright with an abundance of explosive energy!

POM POMS AND JERSEYS AND STREAMERS, OH MY!

whether you cheer for the same team on nfl sunday or you both went to rival basketball schools, nothing is more fun than winning! and let’s face it, your spouse is your number one draft pick and you know you can go head to head with all that life throws at you as long as your #1 is by your side. celebrate your upcoming winning season with whatever sports paraphernalia suits you — pom poms, matching jerseys, maybe even bring out the marching band to get you both pumped for this game called life.

LET LOVE GLOW

Glow sticks need to be broken before they can glow bright – and these are the perfect sendoff for those who are strong enough to break and still choose to light up the night. it doesn’t matter if you get glow sticks that go with your wedding colors or get all the colors of the rainbow – this sendoff is a nod to your unbreakable spirit and your glowing personality!

LOVE IS THE FLOWER YOU’VE GOT TO LET GROW

THROWING FLOWER PETALS ISN’T JUST FOR FLOWER GIRLS ANY MORE. IS THERE ANYTHING MORE ROMANTIC THAN ROSE PETALS GENTLY CASCADING FROM ABOVE? THERE’S SOMETHING SO SOFT AND TENDER AND, DARE WE SAY, INTIMATE ABOUT WALKING THROUGH AN ALMOST ENDLESS CURTAIN OF FLOWER PETALS THAT SPEAKS TO THE KINDNESS AND GENTLENESS OF THE COUPLE FRAMED WITHIN NATURE’S MOST DELICATE CREATION.
