Looking for reception grand exit ideas? That perfect thing to end what is guaranteed to be an amazing wedding day?
Trying to decide whether you want to do a grand exit?
If we may offer our opinion, we LOVE IT when couples tell us they are doing a grand exit! It is one more opportunity for us to capture some truly memorable moments.
To help you out we have pulled together a selection of some of our favorite grand exits that we have photoed over the years!
Reception Grand Exit Ideas
These lanterns lit the couple’s way down the aisle during the ceremony, so it seemed only appropriate that they would light their way out at the end of the night. Plus they added some real drama to the photos!
If you are looking to add a little whimsy to the end of your wedding day then bubbles are the way to go! They make your pictures really pop as the colorfully iridescent bubbles swirl around you. Plus it’s a great way to get everyone involved with saying goodbye!
Ribbon wands are a fun prop for your guests to wave as you parade by them at the end of the night. Adding your name and wedding date to the ribbon makes them a great keepsake for your guests, too!
Exit to the delightful sound of bells! Providing bells of different shapes and sizes adds a little variety to the sound as well as the photos. Including some personalization, such as a ribbon with your name on it, will make this a souvenir your guests will treasure!
Horse Drawn Carriage
One of the more classic ways to exit. Wave to your guests and truly feel like royalty as you are escorted away by a horse drawn carriage.
Sparklers are a favorite choice for many couples! They add a certain sizzle to the photos, plus who doesn’t love waving a sparkler around?!
Be sure you have someone there to coordinate sparkler lighting! You don’t want them to be lit too early, before you are ready to burst through the doors making your grand exit!
Hopefully this list of grand exit ideas will help you decide that you too must exit with a bit of fanfare!
Think about it, you’ve got all of your guests lined up eagerly awaiting your departure. It’s another great opportunity to capture joyous expressions from everyone there, as those closest to you cheer as you and your beloved ride off into the sunset.
And don’t forget about the chance for an epic kiss photo, as you and your new spouse embrace while everyone around you celebrates! Definitely a frame worthy moment!
Here’s a few tips for you as you think about these grand exit ideas:
Remember, walk, don’t run through your exit!
Take your time to enjoy everyone cheering for you. Not only will it give your photographers more opportunities to capture moments, you will be able to soak it in and even join in the celebration.
Make sure you stop along the way, kiss, gaze lovingly at each other…it’ll make for some great pictures!
