      Wedding Inspiration



      What would be a wedding celebration without a grand exit? If you’ve ever browsed photos of wedding grand exits, you know how glamorous and exciting they can be. You might be tempted to plan your very own grand exit for your wedding day!

      If you’ve decided to have your own grand exit, you probably already know that there are so many grand exit wedding ideas to adapt and be inspired by. Sparklers, horse carts, cars and boats--depending on the wedding location--are all popular and refined grand exit ideas that you might consider.

      Before you choose the setting and accessories, you’ll need to plan your grand exit timing. Do you want to stage a grand exit after your ceremony, or after your reception?

      The choice will determine what styling and photography options you have. If you plan a grand exit after your reception, nighttime settings make sparklers a wonderful way to part from your guests and head to your honeymoon.

      A grand exit planned during daylight might give you many more options depending on your wedding location. If you are getting married near water, for one example, you could sail away from your guests via boat! If you part from an exquisite location such as a chateau, you could plan for a horse cart exit or a luxurious drive away in a vintage car. Deciding on the timing of your exit will make planning your wedding day easier.
