Rice Toss Alternatives we Love

You’ve heard of the rice toss, right? At the end of the ceremony, when the couple walks back down the aisle as Mr and Mrs for the first time, guests shower the love birds in… rice. Why rice? Why not something more fun? Well… we have some alternatives for you if you’re not in to being pelted with grains. And spoiler alert: these ideas are cute as all get out.

 toss ideas for your wedding that we love


ONE: Remember a couple weeks back when we created that gorgeous heart garland with sheet music? Well, you can totally make confetti out of it too.

TWO: Having a fall wedding? Throwing leaves is always an option- and even better if you punch them into adorable confetti first! And if you’re having an outdoor wedding, no worries about cleaning them up since they’re completely safe to leave for the birds.

THREE: Another organic option- toss flowers! Wild flowers, dried flowers, whatever you choose- it’s a lovely option for an outdoor wedding!

FOUR: Remember how we suggested using eucalyptus leaves to toss? Well, we’re suggesting it again… with any pretty little leaf! And we’re also vouching for those sweet doily cones to pass them out in.

FIVE: And if you’re into glitz and glamour… why not toss sequins? These DIY translucent little packets of sequins make a cute hand out for guests.

SIX: I am in LOVE with these cute confetti poppers. And since they’re DIY, you could fill them with anything your heart desires… even rice 😉

SEVEN: Confetti. We could almost end the post with this one word because confetti is one of the best things to throw on any occasion!

EIGHT: Goodness gracious, these tiny pom poms are the most adorable thing I’ve seen all day (and yesterday).

NINE: This idea’s for the birds! Oh man, so cheesy, but I love it! If you’re looking for a wildlife friendly- this might just be the best yet! Why not toss birdseed?

TEN: How dreamy is this photo thanks to the shower of rose petals the couple is walking through! You could shower me in rose petals any day.

ELEVEN: If you’re looking for a toss idea that smells as good as it looks… lavender is your friend! Your whole ceremony would be scented and that would trigger fond memories for the rest of your life.

TWELVE: Another idea we absolutely love? These sweet quail feathers in paper cones. Just imagine how they would slowly float to the ground!


So tell me… what’s your favourite? I’m all heart eyes over those tiny pom poms but I’d also toss confetti any day!

Feature Friday: Driftwood Arch

I love the idea of a driftwood arch for a wedding ceremony!

With the weather warming up, I can feel wedding season speeding towards me! If you’re in the wedding industry, I’m sure you can relate- it’s an exciting and sometimes overwhelming time… but it’s so worth it to hear how special your big day was! Today’s Feature Friday is devoted to our beautiful Driftwood Arch- where the most tear worthy moment happens. I know a lot of brides who have chosen to have an outdoor wedding question if they want an arch or not- but arches don’t need to look like every other arch out there. And not all arches need to be covered completely in flowers to be gorgeous. This is one of those arches!

Of course it looks incredible decked out in florals (above) but see the simplicity with just a couple sprigs of greens at this golf course wedding (below)!? Id love to hear if you plan on using an arch for your wedding! There are still dates available for this guy for 2015 weddings *winkwink*.
