Wedding Send-Offs: Ideas For Ending Your Night In Style

You’ve spent months planning your big day and just like that, it’ll be here in a flash! All good things must come to an end though, including your wedding—so why not go out in style? Read on for creative send-off ideas to begin your marriage in a memorable way.


Sparklers are a classic, favorite send-off, and for good reason. They’re a ton of fun for guests (adults and children alike), and they photograph beautifully! Before you set your heart on this type of send-off, however, check with your wedding venue to ensure they’re allowed.

Ribbon Wands

Ribbon wands are another beautiful, eco-friendly option. Plus, they make great, lasting mementos for guests! The wands and ribbon can even be customized to match your wedding’s color scheme. Bonus!

Glow Sticks

Glow sticks are a fun, inexpensive wedding send-off option. For extra versatility, tie ribbon to the ends and distribute them to guests after the reception. They can be worn while dancing and then used again when the night is over!

Fiber Optic Wands

Like glow sticks, fiber optic wands are another colorful way to end the night. They’re perfect for adding extra oomph to the dance floor and for later capping your wedding in style.

Who doesn’t love the whimsy of bubbles? This send-off photographs beautifully, is inexpensive, and there’s practically zero mess to clean up afterwards. They’re also a ton of fun! Bubbles are a great invitation for your guests’ inner child to come out and play.

Flower Petals

If you’re looking for an elegant send-off, flower petals are a great, eco-friendly option. Who doesn’t love to be adorned by flowers? Simply task someone with passing out a basket full of petals to your guests before your exit, and voila—snap away!

Lavender is a beautiful, eco-friendly alternative to rice or confetti that biodegrades easily. Plus, it looks AND smells wonderful! Dried flowers and confetti made from leaves are also great alternatives.
