7 ways to make a show-stopping exit to your Wedding

You’ve finally sorted out your dress, flowers, venue and the man of your dreams, but have you ever stopped and thought of your grand exit?

A unique wedding send-off is a great way to leave a lasting memory and, when you think outside the box, it can make for some amazing photo opportunities (#winning)!

Looking for a great finish, but don’t know where to start? No problem. We’ve gathered 7 striking wedding exits that will end your wedding day in the most perfect way.

1. Shower with…

Pop, sprinkle, throw, shake – the possibilities are endless for your guests to send you off. Sparklers, balloons and glow sticks are a must if you’re after a romantic feel that will be a hit in photos, while confetti push pops are a quirky way to add some colourful fun to your wedding.

Match your send-off with your wedding season. For a winter wedding, have your guests throw glittery snowflakes. For a summer beach wedding, consider having mini beach balls flying through the air (bonus: you can even play dodgeball with them on your way out).

2. Rev it up

Ever wondered what it would be like to marry a ‘bad boy’? Make all your parents worst nightmares come true by leaving the wedding on the back of a motorbike driven by your new hubby. Not only is it a thrill, but you can recreate the Kim and Kayne video clip (but with more clothes and less awkwardness).

3. Cinderella

Every bride wants to live a fairy-tale and what better to do that than exiting your wedding in a horse and carriage with your prince charming! Top it off with a ‘Just Married’ sign for the ultimate fantasy.

6. Sky Lanterns

Paper lanterns are an inexpensive way to make real impact. They look breathtaking in photos, especially when released during dusk or in the evening and you can provide one to each guest to join in the fun!

7. Hot Air Balloon

Take you love to new heights and leave the wedding in a hot air balloon. This is a perfect option if you’re having a country or vineyard wedding, as it takes advantage of the rolling hills and spectacular landscapes.
