Wedding Ceremony and Reception Send-off Ideas


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 that you can incorporate. Please remember though to check with your Springfield wedding venue that it is allowed!

Throw Flower Petals

Flower petal send-offs are a classy take on the old traditional bird seed send-off. What I love about flower petals though is that you can tailor the petals to your wedding colors, it is biodegradable and it does not get stuck in your hair!

Throw “Snow”

Another fun season idea is to throw some “snow”. Make sure to check in with your wedding venue’s rule on messy wedding send-offs. If you get the okay, definitely don’t shy away from this wedding ceremony send-off idea.

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.


Fireworks are an epic way to end your wedding with a big bang.  It creates a memorable and romantic experience for both you and your guests to enjoy after a long night of celebrating! Check out Haunter Fireworks which serves Springfield, Mo, and surrounding areas.


A common way to end the evening is with a sparkler exit. Most venues won’t allow you to do traditional fireworks so sparklers are a nice compromise. It is important for you to chat with the venue owners so you know where you are allowed to do your sparkler exit and bring a bucket of water to extinguish the flames. Serving Springfield, Mo, and surrounding areas Pyro Life has both sparkler and wedding exit packages.


Streamers can be a fun and affordable idea to exit your reception or ceremony. Most venues don’t allow messy send-offs so I recommend gluing ribbon to a stick instead of using the pop-out streamers. The bright colors in streamers will add a fun atmosphere to your special day.
