Wedding Grand Exit Ideas!

Here are some super fun Wedding Grand Exit Ideas!

It’s the end of the night, you’re feeling buzzed on booze and high on life. Your friends and family are ready to hit the road, so it’s time to leave in style. What kind of grand exit do you choose??? That’s what this blog is going to be all about. First, though, I would like to educate you as to why you should not choose a sparkler exit.

Sparklers are dangerous as hell. 

This year, I saw a bride’s hair catch on fire. I’ve had multiple guests almost injure me. I’ve had to cuss out a drunk male guest who thought it would be funny to point a sparkler directly at my face. I’ve had a kid almost take out my eye because he was so short, that’s as high as the sparkler went. I do not like sparklers. They burn over 3k degrees and you’re handing them to drunk guests late at night. What could go wrong? LOL Venues hate them, vendors hate them, they’re dangerous. It’s why I charge $200 to shoot them. I’ll need some extra cash if/when a guest injures me. So let’s look at some gorgeous alternatives!

Looking for other ways to make your event more memorable? Here are some tips on how to add special touches on your wedding day!

Bubbles

Boy oh boy, I love bubbles!! THEY’RE SO FUN! They glisten with rainbow colors, they’re safe and put everyone in a good mood. They’re my favorite option for exits!

Flags

Of course, let’s not get all fascist here. However, I LOVED this exit for Drew and Dawnielle. All of the LGBT pride, none of the dangerous fire!

Dried Flowers

Oh what fun when it comes to wedding grand exit ideas! Plus, it’s biodegradable! It IS messy, but the photos are a blast, even at night! You can buy petals/seeds online. Ask your wedding planner if they have any resources!

Rose Petals

These are certainly an option, but it isn’t my favorite, simply because of the shadows they create. Would be an excellent choice for during the day, but perhaps let’s avoid them at night. Also biodegradable and smells great!!!

Streamers

I REALLY liked these! They pop out of the container, but can then be pulled back in. Perfect for a no-mess type of grand exit! Let me know if you’d like to use these. A planner I’m friends with found the ones below, I can ask them where they found them!

Lightsabers

One of my favorite nerdy wedding grand exit ideas! A perfectly nerdy exit! It was such a blast! You can buy these in bulk here. I’ve done a few weddings with this as an exit and it’s always so much fun!

A Group Shot on the Dance Floor! 

This can always be a blast! Try and get everyone into the shot, have glow sticks/bubbles/etc and just have a grand time! Plus, who doesn’t want a photo of everyone who was there on your big day?!

Flags

This can be super duper fun! I’m not sure how many kinds of flags would look amazing, but I DO know this amazing grand exit is EVERYTHING with the pride flag!
