6 Ways to Leave with Your Lover

At The Fennec we love weddings! Weddings are a time of joy, celebration, and love surrounded by closest friends and family. From the ceremony to the reception, every detail is carefully planned to make the day special and memorable. One of the most important moments of the wedding is the Grand Exit, as the newlyweds make their way out of the venue and into their new life together. While traditional exits will always be a classic choice, there are endless possibilities for creative, unique, and unforgettable ways to leave with your lover.


1. White Rose Petals
A white rose petal wedding exit is a classic and elegant choice that adds a touch of romance to any wedding celebration. As the newlyweds make their way down the aisle, guests shower them with delicate white rose petals, creating a stunning visual display. The gentle fluttering of the petals as they fall to the ground creates a magical atmosphere, and the sweet fragrance of the roses fills the air.

2. Biodegradable Confetti Bombs
A confetti bomb wedding exit is a fun way for couples to end their wedding celebration with a bang! As the newlyweds make their grand exit, guests launch colorful confetti cannons into the air, creating an explosion of vibrant colors that rain down around them. This type of wedding exit is perfect for couples who want to add a festive touch to their special day, as it creates an energetic and celebratory atmosphere.

3. White Ribbon Wands
A white ribbon wand wedding exit is a whimsical way for couples to make their grand exit. As the newlyweds walk down the aisle, guests wave white ribbon wands in the air, creating a magical atmosphere that feels straight out of a fairytale. The waving of the ribbons as they move through the air creates a soft and romantic ambiance, and the simple elegance of the white ribbons complements the wedding décor beautifully.

4. Glow Stick Exit
Weather not cooperating? A glow stick wedding exit is a modern and exciting way for couples to exit their wedding reception. As the newlyweds make their way out of the venue, guests wave glow sticks in the air, creating a vibrant and colorful display that lights up the night. This type of wedding exit is perfect for couples who want to add a playful touch to their celebration or for couples who are having outdoor weather problems the day of. With glow sticks, guests can create intricate patterns and designs in the air, which will also look cool in photographs!

5. Getaway Car
In addition to fun throws for a grand exit tunnel, a getaway car for the happy couple is always a fun touch! A fleet of fun cars are available for rent in Birmingham or a couple may have a special car in their own garage–either way it can be dressed up with florals and offer another touch for their special goodbye!

6. Hot Air Balloon
Floating on cloud 9 after the big day? Keep that momentum going and choose this one-in-a-lifetime send off! A hot air balloon wedding exit is a dreamy and adventurous way for couples to make their grand exit from the ceremony. As the balloon slowly ascends to the sky, the couple can enjoy breathtaking views of scenery and get a birds-eye view of all their family and friends waving them off from below. For an extra surprise, the bride can do the bouquet toss from the basket! “The two most spectacular exits I’ve seen were a surprise helicopter exit and, many years ago, a hot air balloon from a country club reception,” says Isam Culver of Events by Isam.
