Grand Exits: The Recessional (part 1 of 2)

This wedding tradition is a fun way to involve your friends and family in the ceremony! Tossing rice after a wedding ceremony dates back to Roman times. Rice symbolized both fertility and prosperity, and tossing it at couples implied best wishes and good luck—for newborns, good harvests, and everything in between! Here are a few fun alternatives to the rice toss that you can incorporate into your wedding day!
