You’ve spent months wedding planning and picking out the perfect details, color palettes, outfits, and decorations. All to spend the rest of your life with your favorite person on earth. That kind of dedication and love not only deserves a grand celebration but also a grand exit. Make a statement with these fun wedding send-off ideas!

Ceremony Wedding Send-Off

Imagine this, you and your fiance have just exchanged vows, hand in hand, and sealed it all with a kiss. Now you’re running back up the aisle as a newly wedded couple. What makes that moment even more magical? A wedding ceremony send-off. Here are some fun wedding ceremony send-off ideas for you!

Ring Those Bells!

Bells are not so much a visual representation of getting married, but the sound is definitely tied to weddings. It’ll be so exciting to hear everyone cheering for you with the sounds of bells.

Throw Some Confetti

Another great representation of a celebration is confetti. Make sure to check in with your venue’s rule on “messy” wedding send-offs. If you get the okay, definitely don’t shy away from this send-off idea. The bright colors in confetti will add to the ambiance of the day.

Final Wedding Send-off

After spending a full day and night celebrating you and your fiance, it deserves a memorable ending to send you and your fiance home. Here are some ideas for your final and grand wedding send-off!

Light Some Sparklers

If you haven’t already thought of this, here we are reminding you of a classic wedding send-off. Sparklers! You’ve probably seen them at other weddings, but there truly is something magical about these. Imagine yourself walking out into the crowd of your wedding guests as they light up your path to your happily ever after. Sparklers also make for some great wedding photos with their warm glow.
