Fun Alternatives to Throwing the Rice

Whether it’s to save on clean up efforts or to modernize the rice-throwing tradition, there are a ton of great alternatives. Here are just a few that you can consider:

Bubbles

The bride and groom leave the reception hall through a beautiful cloud of bubbles blown by the wedding guests and wedding party. This is a super cool alternative to throwing rice, and a wonderful photo opportunity.

Ringing Bells

It’s a tradition in some cultures to ring bells as the bride and groom leave, to “scare away” evil spirits. Not only is this a fun alternative for today, but it can be really beautiful and a fun experience.
