Grand Exits with a Punch

If all good things must come to an end, then having a badass grand exit is definitely the way to go. Trying to coordinate the perfect exit with sparklers is scary with a bunch of your favorite drunken guests, and unfortunately most venues really get upset when you bring confetti. What's an offbeat planner to suggest? Well we're glad you asked. 

COLORED SMOKE BOMBS

This whole idea came to fruition thanks to Kristina + Jacob's photographer, Christian Agha. We've heard mixed reviews because apparently some color bombs leave residue on clothing, but our first hand experience was fun and perfect for this couple.

DIY FRINGE BANNERS

When we first signed up for The Big Fake Wedding we had no idea what to do for the grand exit. We knew we had to be original and stay within the rules of the venue, so we came up with these fringed banners. It cost less than $50 to make all five banners and we whipped them up in no time. Materials included rolls of crepe paper (you can get them in hundreds of colors!), scissors, wooden rods, and packing tape - that's it! 

GLOW STICKS

Glow sticks are always a good time. They make for fun dance props once you've had a few drinks and cut the cake, and as you can see the photos are filled with energy. It's a win-win!

THE FINE PRINT

Most venues have specific rules in place for a myriad of reasons, so it's better to be proactive and read the list of things that aren't allowed before all your hopes and dreams of a kickass grand exit are squashed. If you need help reading between the lines or maybe just a sounding board for ideas, give us a call!
