Bubbles can even be used or indoor send offs as well as outdoor!

Bubbles are a great choice for a wedding send off, and they fit the vibe of almost any wedding. Whether you’re going for classy or fun, bubbles compliment any farewell at the end of the night. They are inexpensive and easily accessible so there should be no trouble getting your hands on a few hundred of them. They don’t really make a mess and best of all, they’re kid-friendly! Bubbles should be a definite go-to if your wedding will have a lot of little ones.

Glow Sticks

Who doesn’t enjoy glow sticks?

Another cheap, kid-friendly send off item! Glow sticks are tons of fun for young and old, and they are also extremely easy to find. They make no mess whatsoever and they’re great for night-time send offs to add a little flair to your pictures!

The sparks are flying!

Sparklers are definitely a classic wedding send off item. However, they do come with a few problems. One, they can be a bit difficult to get your hands on. If you don’t have a wedding planner to handle that for you, it’s harder to find a few hundred sparklers than it is glow sticks or bubbles. They also are not the best choice for a wedding with a lot of young children. Sparklers do make for an epic send off (what’s more epic than fire?!) but we recommend making sure they can be used safely. Obviously, if your send off ceremony will be inside, sparklers are an absolute no-no. Even if you will be under a patio or something similar, it’s probably best to forego the fire for the evening.

Ecofetti makes for great send off pics!

Ecofetti is exactly what it sounds like! It’s biodegradable confetti that’s safe for the environment. There’s nothing more traditional than throwing handfuls of confetti on the bride and groom as they make their exit as man and wife. Ecofetti is a fabulous choice for your wedding send off, and it is super kid-friendly!

Any one of these options is sure to give you an epic, unforgettable wedding send off. If you just cannot decide on one, you can always combine your favorites! Try ecofetti and bubbles, or spaklers and glow sticks. Or add in a few fun items like beach balls to make your wedding send off really stand out!
