Whether your send-off will be staged (often times they are, simply for photography purposes–people leave before the night is finished and it's easier to gather the masses early in the night) or not, I think we can all agree that, though pretty, sparklers have had their bridal moment. On a hunt for some adorable alternatives that still fit the photo opp mold, I went straight to Etsy and Pinterest. Also, for our fall and early winter brides, these autumn leaf pouches couldn't be more fitting for the season–not to mention cost-free! So here are my four favorite finds: 1. Flag Team How cute are these triangular banners in a variety of cheeky fonts? 2. Wedding Bells A mix of vintage bells in varying styles and colors are perfect for shabby chic nuptials. Hit up local flea markets and vintage shops and make the gathering a treasure hunt. 3. Softies These mini pom poms packed away in scalloped paper cones and adorned with blue ribbon look every bit as cute stowed away as they will tossed over the happy couple. 4. Come Fly With Me Paper airplains are given an added decorative touch with this postage-esque trim and swirly font quote. They're for sale on Etsy, but an easy enough DIY venture as well.
