wedding farewell toss idea

When I was planning my wedding I wanted to include several elements that were unique and had a touch of handmade, since I love crafting.  When I was considering what we would do for our farewell toss, I knew I didn’t want to go traditional with rice. On top of that, hubs nixed the bubble idea (even though I thought they would make for whimsical photos).  Sparklers were out since we had a daytime wedding, and rose petals were too romantic for me. So I got to thinking…and I came up with mini marshmallows!

 Who doesn’t love mini things?

Hint: not me!

They were so easy to make. I used clear cellophane bags and filled them with a scoop (about 2 handfuls worth) of the mini marshmallows.  Then I folded the tops over and secured them with customized labels that I printed out onto sticker paper and then punched out with a square punch.  Then I piled them all inside a white bucket and they were placed right by the exit for guests to grab.

The marshmallows were great because they were soft (so I wouldn’t mind getting pelted with them), they were mini (and anyone who knows me knows I love mini things), they were white (and therefore coordinated with our black & white color scheme), and they went perfect with our candy bar motif.

Plus they were an inexpensive for anyone trying to operate on a wedding budget, like us!

Did I mention they were an awesome snack on our way out to the getaway car?
