24 reasons to replace the rice on your wedding

If you know anything about planning a wedding, you know it’s all in the details. From your something blue and table cards to centerpieces and floral arrangements, it’s a lot of work to get everything right — and rightly so: A wedding is one of the most important events in a gal’s life! Luckily, we’re here to help you cross one small (but major!) detail off your checklist: The Wedding Exit. Will you have your guests toss rice to send you off? Or will you go with something a little more unique? If you’re all about changing it up, check out these 24 non-traditional ways to send off the happy couple.

1. Pom Poms: It may take a lot of work, but DIY-ing a whole bunch of pom poms is totally worth it for both the fun photos and the quirky, colorful touch. You should probably start crafting now. (via Brit + Co)

2. Wild Flowers: What’s a bohemian wedding without some wild flowers? This couple wrapped their buds in paper cones — made of sheet music. Love it! (via Rock n’ Roll Bride)

3. Confetti: Nothing says a party without a little confetti. You could go with neutrals or metallics, but you know what we always say: The more color, the better! (via Style Me Pretty)

4. Bubbles: Bring out your inner child by having your guests blow bubbles upon your exit. (via Johnny Fenn)

5. Sparklers: Who says you actually need to throw something to celebrate the newlyweds? This couple wanted their guests to hold sparklers to light the way to their new life. (via Style Me Pretty)

6. Flowers: Use this colorful wedding shoot as inspo for a bright and fun affair. Tossing yellow flowers into the air will go along with any theme. (via 100 Layer Cake)

7. Leaves: If you’re planning to wed in autumn months, make use of your natural surroundings. Plus, falling leaves create a great backdrop for photos. (via First Class Weddings)

8. Cap Guns: Bring your romance story into the wild, wild west by telling your guests to fire off cap guns after the ceremony. The decorative tags add a sophisticated touch would otherwise seem childish. (via The Knot)

9. Glitter and Sequins: Glam bride? Glitter and sequins should do the trick. While it’s definitely a pain to clean, it’ll make the wedding ceremony sparkle almost as much as the glowing bride. (via Style Me Pretty)

10. Leaf Confetti: Go green with beautifully colored, all-natural confetti that won’t hurt the environment. All you need to DIY it is a pile of leaves and a hole puncher (or two). (via Play Create Explore + Kinfolk)

11. Lavender: If you’re looking for something non-traditional but still lovely, lavender is the way to go — even if just for the pretty scent alone. Those floral paper cones aren’t too shabby, either! (via Style Me Pretty)

12. Bird Seed: An eco-friendly alternative to throwing rice is throwing birdseed. You’ll get the same effect while helping out your cute little love birds (literally). We love the idea of setting it up as a bird seed bar, too. (via The Bride’s Cafe)

13. Glow Sticks: Throwing a night time affair? You’re going to need some lights. Even if you’re not throwing a rave, get the party started with some glow sticks while they simultaneously light the couple’s exit path. (via Wedding Wire)

14. Oatmeal: Tossing oatmeal is another eco-friendly option that your wild animal friends will adore. We are especially diggin’ the “Oat to Joy” envelopes. (via Jessica Claire)

15. Streamers: Have your guests toss rolls of streamers into the air to send the happy couple on their way. It’s one of the easiest ones to clean up and makes for some truly unique photo ops. Yarn balls would be another cool variation. (via Brides)

16. Herbs: If you’ve got a cooking couple on your hands, throwing herbs is a perfect way to tie it in. Not only do they smell deliciously fresh, but they’re also environmentally friendly. (via Style Me Pretty)

17. Mini Beach Balls: Beachfront weddings sure are romantic, but that doesn’t mean the bride and groom can’t have a little fun. Mini beach balls are one thing your guests will thoroughly enjoy tossing into the blue sky. (via Ruffled)

18. Petals: If you’re not interested in throwing full flowers, rose petals are another romantic twist. (via Style Me Pretty)

19. Confetti Push-Pops ($20): Colorful, mixed media confetti is all well and good, but what we’re really obsessing over are these plastic push-pops that holds it. And afterwards, your guests can keep the containers and make their own DIY pop treats.

20. Paper Planes: We’re loving these pink paper planes, but you can go with any color that fits your scheme. Stamp your initials on each plane for a unique and personalized touch. We envision an origami party in your near future… (via Southern Weddings)

21. Sprinkles: How cute is this? Rainbow sprinkles are always a good idea. Always. (via Green Wedding Shoes)

22. Balloons: Nothing says celebration like a bunch of balloons. If you’re not really a fan of having things thrown on top of you (or at you), this is an equally fun variation on the tradition. (via Brides)

23. Ribbon Wands: This couple was sent off with ribbon wands that were beautifully displayed at the wedding’s entrance. These are something you could totally DIY. (via Wedding Chicks)

24. Heart-Shaped Plantable Confetti ($10 for 350 pieces): Heart-shaped anything is completely appropriate for an event celebrating love. This adorable confetti is handmade with wild flower seeds inside to mark where your love actually bloomed!

PASO A PASO

La Cinematografía de Bodas puede no ser una cosa famosa, pero las personas están amando esta tendencia cada vez más y más; por lo tanto los proveedores de bodas están añadiendo camarógrafos talentosos a su equipo de vendedores de la boda.
La Cinematografía es una inversión, que creemos que vale la pena si tienes el presupuesto. Después de todo lo dicho y hecho en el gran día, tus fotos de la boda y el video son lo único que tendrás para recordar cuan maravilloso fue ese día.

Al igual que con cualquier otro proveedor de bodas, los videógrafos ofrecen una variedad de paquetes para ayudarle a obtener exactamente los servicios que está buscando. Los paquetes pueden ser grandes porque puede elegir los servicios que coinciden con sus expectativas y su presupuesto. El concepto erróneo más común sobre la videografía es que normalmente el Cliente piensa que recibirá clips o de todo lo que sucedió el día de su boda. Mientras algunos videógrafos ofrecen esto como una opción de paquete, lo más probable es que su producto final será una obra maestra estilizada y editada para recordar las mejores partes de tu día.

 

Estas son algunas de las opciones de paquetes más populares que puede ver al contratar a un videógrafo:

Algunos videógrafos incluyen un video teaser como parte de su paquete, mientras que otros lo ofrecen como un complemento. Highlights / Climax (3-10 min) - Para muchos videografos, El Highlight es el producto final que usted recibirá de los puntos más culminantes de su boda. Comúnmente, esta película no es lineal y adopta un enfoque más moderno, donde el videógrafo ha creado verdaderamente una pieza de arte cinematográfico de los eventos y momentos a lo largo de su día. Cortometraje (10-20 minutos) - Si te decides por un paquete con un cortometraje, recibirá una versión editada del material de boda que tome una forma más lineal, incluyendo a menudo una parte de sus votos, ceremonia, brindis, recepción, etc. Dependiendo cuánto tiempo hayas reservado a tu Video grafo, la película puede también incluir conseguir el metraje listo, el primer metraje de la mirada, y la salida magnífica. SameDay Edit (4-10 min) - Algunos videógrafos ofrecen una opción para tener un tipo de Metraje del dia tu boda editado en el acto y que se muestra durante su recepción. Esta es una divertida sorpresa para los huéspedes e invitados en el gran del día! Puesto que tendrán la oportunidad de ver la boda desde un punto de vista mas completo e único. Documental de larga duración (30-90 min) - Si está interesado en revivir la mayoría de su día, esta opción es para usted! Su videographer puede crear una película más larga que incluya secciones de su boda, como su ceremonia. Debido a la longitud, esta opción es la más verdadera de su boda. Complementos - La mayoría de los videógrafos ofrecen opciones a la carta para recibir imágenes adicionales de su día. Algunos complementos populares incluyen: Ceremonia completa / recepción - Editado filmación de su ceremonia de boda o discursos durante su recepción Raw metraje - Metraje no editado de su día de la boda Cobertura aérea drone Cobertura de la cena de ensayo Saludos de los huéspedes durante la hora del cóctel Película de remolque (mencionada anteriormente, como un complemento) Love Story - Similar a una sesión de compromiso, este material se filma antes del día de su boda, generalmente en ropa normal, que puede incluir una entrevista con usted como

Intimate.

Another good thing about beach wedding is that you only invite who you have closer or you are in regular touch. You don’t have to invite relatives you have never seen before.
The people you’re closest with will make the journey, and you’ll end up with a tighter group of people that you actually want to spend time with.
And of course, you save that money of those people’s catering to something else.

Wedding and HoneyMoon.

I don’t believe it could exist something better than having your wedding ceremony and your honeymoon at the same place!
The benefits of having an casual, confortable and elegant wedding over the beach is that you can also enjoy the 5 stars hotel with your closest friends and family.
Trust me, you will love the all-inclusive package that enables you to combine the marriage ceremony with the honeymoon. Beach wedding dreams gate films
