Sending Off the Bride & Groom: A Few Unique Ways to Make a Grand Exit at Your Wedding

For a split second, I thought, "Oh, no! This is going to be a disaster!" 

I looked at all the elderly wedding guests lined up to send off the bride and groom. I noticed the young ladies in their high heels. For a brief moment, I was terrified these tiny little balls of joy were going to send people slipping and sliding on the sidewalk. I was I just knew someone was going to break their neck.
As it turns out, soybeans squish surprisingly easy!
Everyone was safe and the bride and groom were heralded as geniuses!  I am now and forever an advocate for having a soybean send off after a wedding ceremony. Just look how perfectly they freeze the action of the moment!

To make this work best for your wedding photos, have at least 2-4 of the giant champagne bottle confetti poppers! Ideally, use two at the beginning of the exit and use two more near the middle or toward the front of the line. The small ones are great and cost effective, but they come on with a whimper. The large ones pack much more punch! Here, the bride and groom put their parents in charge of the champagne bottles, and they had great timing! 

A few more creative send off ideas that photograph well are: 
Sprinkles! 
Something to wave: ribbons, cheer poms, or monogrammed flags
Birdseed
Wildflower seeds (use light-colored seeds &
make sure you give your guests a bountiful supply so they will show up on camer
