Sparkler Exit 

This is the most popular choice for a reason – the photos! Who doesn’t love a good sparkler exit kiss photo?!

Candle Aisle 

We love this option for its simplicity and romantic feel. Line the exit walkway with tons of candles of all shapes and sizes and make your final exit in the soft glow of candlelight.

Have some fun with balloons! You could line up the exit path with balloons, or choose to do a balloon release with your guests.

A bubble exit makes for a great photo op as well as being 100% kid-approved. Not to mention the super easy set-up and execution!

Paper Lanterns

Speaking of great photo ops, paper lantern release photos are to die for! This option can take some extra coordination by you (or your wedding planner!) but the end result is stunning.

Another classic, have your guests line up and toss confetti as you run to your getaway car. You can even personalize it a little by using confetti that matches your wedding colors.
