We had colorful lightsticks for our "send off" at the reception and after the ceremony we had a bubble send off :)

@james: A "send off" is at the end of the wedding when the married couple leaves the reception. The guest stands on the rifgt and the left and swing lightsticks or blow bubbles, etc. to "send" the couple off :)

Oh okay thank you GermanBride2.  I didn't realize there was a name for that.  That would be a fun thing to do I think.

BTW I would like to do rose petals...yellow rose petals to be exact.  Yellow roses were my mother's favorite!

We did sparklers but instead of walking out down a row of sparklers we ended up being stuck on the dance floor while everyone had sparklers. It was very very awkward after the first few giggles and 30 seconds of dancing in... I wanted to bolt but couldn't. I can't handle too much attention for like 3 minutes of inpromptu dancing... wth DJ... could have wrapped that up for us!

None for us! I was still at the venue after the party ended, delegating what to keep and what to toss and where to put it. Haha.


I wanted to do a sparker send off, but our venue did not allow sparklers so my dreams were dashed.

We had a bubbles send off, but we went back inside and tried to help get stuff together (they had to practically push us out the door so they could clean stuff up themselves!).

I'm thinking of doing a ribbon wand send-off, but I'll probably add bells to them.  I like the idea of the send-off so much, I'm willing to do it even if we have to walk back into the room later on :P


Tangent: where can I get some cheap bells?  I feel like this could be an easy after-Christmas sale find.

We didn't have a send off because I knew we'd be partying until we got kicked out! LOL We would have done a sparkler send off thought if we did do one. Maybe for an anniversary party/vow renewal? lol
