Friday Five: Wedding Reception Exit Inspiration

Tampa Bay Wedding: Wedding Reception Exit Inspiration

Friday Five, Wedding Exit Inspiration and Ideas

This Friday we’re highlighting the dashing wedding exits of our Tampa Bay couples. Today’s inspiration comes from the eclectic array of wedding reception send-off ideas. We are loving the creative and whimsical array of confetti showers to shimmering sparklers.

Get inspired, be creative and don’t be afraid to try something new for your wedding day, after all it is a festive occasion!

We love the simplistic feel of this lovely lace and burlap wedding. For a couple looking to go eco-friendly, think about a bubble send off. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the clean up.

For this rustic, shabby-chic wedding, guests twirled pink ribbon and lace wands as the newlywed couple departed for the evening.
